Call for nominations for EPS-SNPD prizes---sent out in spring 2017

Dear colleagues,

we would like to ask you for suggestions of suitable candidates for two newly created prizes of the
Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) :

1. EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize
----------------------------------------------------------------
The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize will be awarded by EPS 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 prize 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.

 

                                                                                   Christian Beck

                                                                          Chairman of SNPD, EPS

Winners of the 2017 Prizes of the EPS-SNPD

The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize  2017 was awarded toPeter GrassbergerItamar Procaccia

  •  Peter Grassberger, Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany, " 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, Weizmann Institute Rehovot, Israel, " 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."
