The 2019 EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize was awarded to Sergio Ciliberto (ENS Lyon) and Satya Majumdar (Paris-Sud). The prize award ceremony was on 8 May 2019 in Stockholm during the EPS-Nordita conference  "Statistical Physics of Complex Systems".  ---- Photos from the award ceremony in Stockholm ----- Long citation of the prize.

Sergio Cilberto  is honored "for his seminal contributions over a wide range of problems in statistical and nonlinear physics, in particular for performing groundbreaking new experiments testing Fluctuation Theorems for injected power, dissipated heat, and entropy production rates, as well as investigating experimentally the connection between dissipated heat and the Landauer bound, thus demonstrating a link between information theory and thermodynamics".

Satya Majumdar   is honored "for his seminal contributions to non-equilibrium statistical physics, stochastic processes, and random matrix theory, in particular for his groundbreaking research on Abelian sandpiles, persistence statistics, force fluctuations in bead packs, large deviations of eigenvalues of random matrices, and applying the results to cold atoms and other physical systems".


 The 2019 EPS-SNPD Early Career Prize went to Karel Proesmans (Hasselt) and Valentina Ros (ENS Paris).  ----- Long citation of the prize.

Karel Proesmans  is honored "for his outstanding research contributions in the field of stochastic thermodynamics, in particular his work dealing with optimization protocols for thermal engines, as well as his work on thermodynamic uncertainty relations for discrete-time and periodically driven systems".

Valentina Ros  is honored "for her outstanding research contributions in quantum and classical disordered systems, explaining new ways in which those systems can break ergodicity and fail to equilibrate, and her investigations of rough, high-dimensional landscapes emerging in this context".
