Nominations are sought for the Young Scientist Prize in Atomic, Molecular and Optical [AMO] Physics, which will be awarded in 2016 by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics through Commission C15 [AMO Physics]. The prize will be awarded during the 25th International Conference on Atomic Physics [ICAP] to be held on 24-29 July 2016 at Seoul, Korea. The Prize includes a certificate, a medal, a EURO 1,000 award and an invited presentation at ICAP.

Nominees for the 2016 award are expected to have made original and outstanding contributions to the field of AMO Physics. If the work was performed in collaboration, the leading personal contribution of the nominee must be clearly identified. To qualify as a “Young Scientist,” a nominee should have had, by 1 January 2016, no more than 8 years research experience (excluding career interruption) following the PhD. That is, the year of the PhD must have been 2007 or later, barring career interruptions.

Nominations should include:

  • A brief paragraph stating the achievement for which the nominee is to be recognized.
  • Curriculum vitae including all publications.

Self-nominations will not be considered. Nominations should be sent to:

Toshiyuki Azuma
Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics Lab., RIKEN [e-mail toshiyuki-azuma [at] riken [dot] jp]

Deadline is 31 March 2016.

Toshiyuki Azuma,
Chair of IUPAP C15

IUPAP/IUPAC Joint Working Party on the Discovery of Elements Validates Claims for Four New Elements

The claims for four new elements have been validated in two new reports from the IUPAC/IUPAP Joint Working Party (JWP) and accepted for publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry. The addition of the four, namely elements 113, 115,117, and 118, represents a significant milestone because it completes the seventh row of the Periodic Table. The new elements add to the remarkable progress in extending the periodic table following 114 and 116 validated in 2011, and element 112 validated in 2009.
