Kumiko Kotera is a young researcher in Astrophysics, at the Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris, (IAP) of the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). She builds theoretical models to probe the most violent phenomena in the Universe, by deciphering their so-called “astroparticle” messengers (cosmic rays, neutrinos and photons).
It is a great pleasure to announce that the Autumn-Winter 2016 EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics goes to Dr. Patricia Bassereau from the Institute Curie of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Paris, France. Patricia is a world leader at the Physics-Biology interface and carries out outstanding research on the physics of bio-membranes. She is a role model for how soft matter scientists coming from the physical sciences can make contributions in biology.
Rocío Borrego Varillas is a young postdoctoral researcher in Physics, who after graduating from the University of Salamanca in Spain, obtained a Marie-Curie fellowship. She is at present Research Fellow at the Politecnico of Milano where she works in the field of ultrafast spectroscopy in the UV range.
It is a great pleasure to announce that the Spring-Summer 2016 EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics goes to Dr. Eva Monroy from the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics (INAC) of the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique in Grenoble, France. Eva is involved in outstanding research work on nitride semiconductors nanostructures and has designed and achieved nitride quantum structures that have allowed her to demonstrate the shortest emission wavelength from intersubband transition in a material system.
Antigone Marino is a researcher in physics, at the Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems of the Italian National Research Council. She received her doctorate in 2004, at the University of Naples, in Italy. She studies soft matter optics applied to telecommunication, with a special interest in liquid crystal technologies.
On 4 July 2016, the Autumn-Winter 2015 Emmy Noether Distinction was presented to Prof. Sibylle Günter, Director at the Max Planck Society and Director of the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching, Germany, by Prof. Quang Tran, member of the Executive Committee of EPS, on behalf of the EPS President.
Barbara Capone is at present an APART (Austrian Programme for Advanced Research and Technology) Fellow of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, at the Physics Department of the Vienna University. She is a young theoretical soft matter physicist, working on developing coarse graining models for soft matter systems to allow the design and simulation of novel materials in the nanoscale. Her work focuses primarily, but not only, on polymer science.
Below is an interview between Barbara [BC] and Lucia Di Ciaccio [LDC], Chair of the Equal Opportunity Committee of EPS.
Registration for the 2016 Summer School of Particle and Astroparticle Physics [GraSPA 2016] in Annecy-le-Vieux, France is now open.
The goal of the school is to introduce Particle Physics and Astroparticle Physics to 3rd and 4th year physics students while at the same time touching upon the latest results and challenges in these fields.
It is a great pleasure to announce that the Autumn-Winter 2015 EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics has been awarded to Prof. Sibylle Guenter from the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics [IPP] in Garching, Germany. Sibylle is one of the leading theoretical physicists in the field of magnetic fusion plasmas.
On 2 October 2015, the Spring 2015 Emmy Noether distinction was presented to Prof. A. Fontcuberta i Morral (Institute of Materials, EPFL, Switzerland), by the EPS Equal Opportunity Committee [EOC] Chair, on behalf of the EPS President.
Registration for the third edition of the European School in Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics [ESIPAP] is now open.
ESIPAP was founded by the laboratory of excellence ENIGMASS and offers advanced and intensive modular courses in instrumentation for students (Master and Ph.D.) and for professionals.
