The Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) calls for nominations for two newly created prizes of this Division:

EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize

The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize will be awarded for outstanding research contributions in the area of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems and complex networks. The prize winner will have made ground-breaking and agenda-setting contributions for the development of this field. The prize can be shared by up to 3 people. The prize consists of a medal and a cash sum. Prize winners can be of any nationality.

EPS-SNPD Early Career Prize

This prize will be awarded to an early career scientist (defined as having obtained his/her PhD less than 6 years ago at the time of nomination) who has made outstanding research contributions to an area of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems, or complex networks, as evidenced by a top quality and highly cited paper in an international journal. The prize can be shared by up to 2 people. The prize consists of a medal and a cash sum. Prize winners can be of any nationality.

Please send your nomination to c [dot] beck [at] qmul [dot] ac [dot] uk with the subject header “EPS-SNPD prize nomination”, attaching a brief description of the research contribution of the candidate (1 page maximum, plus a list of up to 6 key publications).
