Emmy Noether Distinction: nominate a deserving (woman) physicist

Posted By Administration, Monday 17 November 2014

In 2013, the European Physical Society [EPS] launched the Emmy Noether Distinction to recognize noteworthy women physicists.

Emmy Nother was an influential theoretical physicist, and a role model for future generations of physicists. The laureates of the Emmy Noether Distinction are chosen for their capacity to inspire the next generation of scientists, and especially encourage women to handle careers in physics.

The first prizes were awarded to:

  • Dr. Alessandra Gatti, for her contributions to physics, the introduction of concepts of quantum images, spatial entanglement, and quantum entangled images.
  • Professor Nynke Dekker, for her research including the study of different proteins on DNA and RNA.
  • Dr. Rumiana Dimova, for her distinguished contributions to membrane biophysics.

The EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics is awarded twice a year: in winter and in summer. The selection committee, appointed by the EPS Equal Opportunities Committee, will consider nominations for woman scientists working in Europe.

To make a nomination, please email the following information to the EPS Secretariat:
- A cover letter, detailing (in no more than 3 paragraphs) the motivation for awarding the Emmy Noether distinction to the nominee;
- The nominee’s name, institution and email;
- The nominee’s résumé;
- The nominator’s name, institution, and email.

The distinction charter can be downloaded here.

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Physics: Women in Physics

Posted By Administration, Friday 31 October 2014

Deadline for manuscript submissions: March 14, 2015.

Special Issue Information
The Asian Journal of Physics invites authors of original articles and reviews exploring all aspects and issues, related to women in physics, from both present and historical perspective, to submit them to a Special Issue focused on this subject.
Until the 20th century, women did not have access to higher education institutions. Hence, with a very few exceptions, it was impossible for them to contribute to scientific discovery. There has been a gradual change in this trend since the beginning of the 20th century. Nevertheless, even nowadays, women’s representation in physics lags behind most other science disciplines, making up about 13% of faculty members in all physics degree–granting departments.
The Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Physics Vol 24, No 3, 2015 will focus on all aspects of the work and the impact of the women in physics. All contribution to this area are welcome.

View details about this on the website of the ASIAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS.
