AIP Women in Physics Lecture Tour: call for nominations 2016

Posted By Administration, Monday 2 November 2015

The Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecture Tour celebrates the contribution of women to advances in physics. Under this scheme, a woman who has made a significant contribution in a field of physics will be selected to present lectures in venues arranged by each participating branch of the AIP.  Nominations are currently sought for the AIP WIP Lecturer for 2016. We are seeking a woman working overseas who:


       has made a significant contribution in a field of physics research

       has demonstrated public speaking ability

       is available in 2016 to visit Canberra and each of the six Australian State capital cities and surrounding regions.


Presentations will include school lectures, public lectures and research colloquia, subject to negotiation with the various AIP branches and their contacts. School and public lectures are expected to be of interest to non-specialist physics audiences, and to increase awareness among students and their families of the possibilities offered by continuing to study physics. University lectures will be presented at a level suitable for the individual audience (professional or graduate). Air/surface travel and accommodation will be provided.


Nominations should be sent via email to the AIP Special Projects Officer (see information below) via the nomination form available from the Women in Physics Lecturer page of the AIP website:  


Self-nomination is welcomed, as are nominations from branches or employers/colleagues.


1. Completed WIP Lecture Tour nomination form (accessible via the web site listed above) 

2. Information requested on the nomination form include the following:

·      Nominee’s name and contact details

·      a detailed record of presentations to the general public, schools and media

·      a brief statement of the research area of interest to the nominee

·      an outline of the nominee's significant contributions to physics

·      references to key publications in which these contributions were presented (via curriculum vitae

·      evidence of the nominee's ability to give a lecture which will excite an enthusiastic response in senior secondary and undergraduate students. (NOTE: this requirement must be adequately addressed in order for the nominee to be considered for selection)

·      Self-nominations should include names of two referees who can attest to the ability of the nominee to give lectures appropriate for the target audience. 

Closing Date: Monday 30th November 2015

Applications and nominations should be sent by email:

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.
