The EPS Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics is acknowledged internationally as one of the most prestigious awards for condensed matter physics.

Nominations are now being sought for the 2014 Award. Nominations can be submitted by any individual physicist following the nomination procedures and using the nomination form on the EPS website. The EPS Europhysics Prize recognises recent work by one or more individuals in the area of physics of condensed matter, which, in the opinion of the Society’s selection committee, represents scientific excellence. Recent work is defined to mean completed within five years prior to the award. The award can be given for either pure or applied research.

The EPS Europhysics Prize is awarded under the supervision of the Condensed Matter Division.

Details of the nomination process can be found on the EPS website. Only complete nominations, which should be kept confidential, will be considered. For a nomination to be complete, it must include:

  • a completed nomination form from the EPS web pages,
  • 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),
  • a suggested short citation.

The deadline for the receipt of nominations is 31 January 2014. Nominations should be sent to the EPS Secretary General David Lee, EPS, 6 rue des Frères Lumière, F-68200 Mulhouse, France, to the attention of the EPS Europhysics Prize 2014 Selection Committee.

The 2014 Award will be presented at a session of the 25th General Conference of the EPS Condensed Matter Division which will take place in Paris from 24 to 29 August 2014. This session promises to be one of the high points of what should be a very stimulating conference. Regular updates of the conference details can be found at the CMD 25 website.

SESAME Council Meeting held in Jordan

The Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East [SESAME] is a 3rd-generation synchrotron light source under construction in Allan, Jordan. Like the European Organization for Nuclear Research [CERN], it was set up under the auspices of UNESCO and is now a completely independent intergovernmental organization. The accelerator system consists of a Microtron, a Booster which accelerates the beam up to 800 MeV, and the 2.5 GeV synchrotron ring. Four experimental beamlines are foreseen...
