2019 ESPD Prizes awarded

Posted By Etienne Pariat, Friday 22 March 2019

The European Solar Physics Division board is delighted to present the 2019 ESPD Prize winners:

PhD Thesis Prize to Dr. Norbert Magyar (PhD carried at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) for significant contributions, using 3D magneto-hydrodynamics numerical experiments, to the study of waves and their relation to turbulence in the solar corona, in the framework of the PhD thesis.

Early Career Researcher Prize to Dr. Lakshmi Pradeep Chitta (currently at Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Germany) for ground breaking observational analysis highlighting the crucial role of small-scale photospheric magnetic fields in the structure and dynamics of the solar corona.

Posted By Etienne Pariat, Tuesday 24 July 2018

The European Solar Physics Division board is delighted to present the 2018 ESPD Prize winners:

PhD Thesis Prize to Dr. Peter Levens (PhD carried at University of Glasgow, UK) for significant contributions to the study of
tornado-like prominences - using detailed ultraviolet spectroscopic, multi wavelength imaging and visible spectropolarimetric observational analysis - helping to unveil the nature of these structures.

Early Career Researcher Prize to Dr. Tanausú del Pino Alemán (currently at Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, Spain) for ground breaking contributions in the field of theoretical solar spectropolarimetry, developing novel methods and very efficient radiative transfer computer programs for understanding scattering line polarization using realistic atomic and atmospheric models.

ESPD prizes

Posted By Tom Van Doorsselaere, Monday 28 August 2017

In a consultation process kicked off  in 2015, the ESPD / EPS decided in 2016 to implement three Division Prizes, foreseen by its statutes and bylaws since its establishment in 2008: a Senior Prize, presented to a distinguished senior solar scientist for a life-long prolific career or scholarship, an Early Career Prize, presented to a solar scientist with an outstanding research track record up to four years after the completion of his / her PhD Thesis and a PhD Thesis Prize, presented to a young researcher who achieved significant doctoral work and a successful PhD Thesis completion over the previous calendar year. The PhD Thesis and Early Career Prizes are awarded annually, while the Senior Prize is triennial.

In view of the 15th European Solar Physics Meeting (ESPM-15) in Budapest, Hungary, in early September 2017, the ESPD Prize Committee established a majority practice addressing potential conflicts of interest to evaluate the nominations for the PhD Thesis and Early Career Prizes.

The EPS Solar Physics Division is delighted to present the first-ever, 2017 ESPD Prize winners:

(i)     PhD Thesis Prize to Dr. Clara Froment for significant contributions to the solar coronal heating problem in the course her PhD Thesis.

(ii)    Early Career Prize to Dr. Natasha Jeffrey for significant contributions to the physics of solar flares and for inspiring outreach activities.

(iii)   Senior Prize to Prof. Dr. Manfred Schüssler for his outstanding, life-long scholarship in solar physics, his fundamental contribution to the study of solar magnetic fields and his school-forming influence on generations of solar physicists.

In the case of the ESPD Senior Prize, in particular, the Board moved to appoint a Committee of senior external experts to evaluate submitted nominations. This Committee consisted of Prof. Lidia Van Driel-Gesztelyi (MSSL & Observatoire de Paris – Chair), Prof. Marcel Goossens (KU Leuven), Dr. Nicole Vilmer (Observatoire de Paris) and Prof. Loukas Vlahos (University of Thessaloniki).

The EPS SPD Board extends its most sincere congratulations to all Prize winners and thanks them for their prompt acceptance of these distinctions. It also sincerely thanks the members of the Senior Prize Committee for their immediate, enthusiastic response to contribute to this important Division function.

The 2017 ESPD Prizes will be presented in the course of ESPM-15, during an award ceremony specifically designed for this event.
