Dear EPS members,
Dear EPS friends,
The EPS Condensed Matter Division Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievements in Condensed Matter Physics has been presented annually since 1975 by the European Physical Society, and has become one of the most prestigious awards for condensed matter physics in Europe.
The selection committee is pleased to request nominations for the 2016 EPS Condensed Matter Division Europhysics Prize. The prize laureates will receive a cash award, as well as an invitation to attend and present their work at the 26th Condensed Matter General Conference (CMD 26) that will take place in Groningen, the Netherlands, from September 5th through September 9th, 2016.
The EPS Europhysics Prize is awarded in recognition of recent work by one or more individuals in the area of condensed matter physics, and, more specifically, work leading to advances in the fields of electronic, electrical, and materials engineering that, in the opinion of the Society's selection committee, is of particular scientific excellence and merit. Recent work is defined as work that has been completed within the 5 years prior to the award. The prize may be awarded for either pure or applied research, at the discretion of the Society.
Only complete nominations will be considered. For a nomination to be complete, it must include:
