The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division is happy to announce the winners of its two 2017 prizes

Posted By Administration, 13 July 2017

The Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) is happy to announce the winners of the two prizes of the Division:

The 2017 EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize is awarded to

  • Peter Grassberger ”for his seminal contributions to nonlinear physics, in particular for the development of the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm to analyse nonlinear chaotic time series, and the development of highly innovative numerical simulation techniques for complex phenomena such as directed percolation, the dynamics of chain polymers, epidemic spreading, and transient chaos.”
  • Itamar Procaccia ”for his seminal contributions to nonlinear physics, in particular for the development of the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm to analyse nonlinear chaotic time series, and the development of power- ful theoretical approaches to describe complex phenomena such as multifractals, diffusion-limited aggregation, anisotropic turbulence and drag reduction in turbulent flows.”

The 2017 EPS-SNPD Early Career Prize is awarded to

  • Laura Foini ”for her outstanding research contributions in the field of glassy systems and nonequilibrium dynamics of isolated quantum systems.”
  • Edgar Roldan ”for his outstanding research contributions at the interface of stochastic thermodynamics and biophysics.”

The prize award ceremony will be during the conference of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division in Krakow 3-8 September 2017.

More information can be found on the website of EPS-SNPD.

New prize of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division of EPS - call for nominations

Posted By admin, 11 May 2017

The Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) calls for nominations for two newly created prizes of the Division:

1. EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize

The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize will be awarded for outstanding research contributions in the area of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems and complex networks. The prize winner will have made ground-breaking and agenda setting contributions for the development of this field. The prize can be shared by up to 3 persons. The prize consists of a medal and a cash sum. Prize winners can have any nationality.

2. EPS-SNPD Early Career Prize

This prize will be awarded to an early career scientist (defined as having obtained his/her PhD less than 6 years ago
at the time of nomination) who has made outstanding research contributions to an area of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems, or complex networks, as evidenced by a top quality and highly cited paper in an international journal. The prize can be shared by up to 2 persons. The prize consists of a medal and a cash sum. Prize winners can have any nationality.

Please send your nomination to c.beck@qmul.ac.uk with the subject header "EPS-SNPD prize nomination", attaching a brief
description of the research contribution of the candidate (1 page maximum, plus a list of up to 6 key publications).

Deadline for nominations for the 2017 prizes is 15 June 2017.

The prize selection committee consists of the current board members of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division of EPS in consultation with external experts.

Further information is available at the website of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division of EPS.
