The EPS Condensed Matter Division Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievements in Condensed Matter Physics has been presented annually since 1975, and has become one of the most prestigious awards for condensed matter physics in Europe.
The selection committee is pleased to request nominations for the 2020 Europhysics Prize.
The award winners will receive a cash award, and an invitation to present their work at “Condensed Matter in Madrid – CMD 2020 GEFES”, the 28th General Conference of the EPS Condensed Matter Division (CMD 28). CMD 2020 GEFES will take from August 31st through September 4th, 2020. For more information on the conference, I refer you to its webpage.
The EPS Europhysics Prize is awarded in recognition of a prominent and well-identifiable discovery, breakthrough, or contribution to condensed matter physics, by one or more individuals, contribution that, in the opinion of the Society's selection committee, represents scientific excellence. The award may be given for either pure or applied research at the discretion of the Society.
You may download the Europhysics Prize charter here. A list of past Europhysics Prize recipients is available here.
Only complete nominations will be considered. For a nomination to be complete, it must include:
- a complete CV
- a publication list (5 pages maximum)
- an indication of the three most relevant papers to the nomination
- a description of the work justifying the nomination (2 pages maximum)
