Call for nominations of SCES2022 Prizes
We are soliciting nominations for recipients of the SCES2022 Prizes for significant contributions to the study of strongly correlated electron systems.
Following the tradition established at SCES 2013 in Tokyo three Prizes, of which two are early career Prizes, will be awarded during SCES 2022.
The Nevill F. Mott Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the theory of strongly correlated electron systems, and who is active in research no more than 8 years after the PhD.
The Bryan R. Coles Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the experimental study or discovery of strongly correlated electron materials and phenomena, and who is active in research no more than 8 years after the PhD..
The Bernard Coqblin Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the physics of strongly correlated electron systems achieved in a country where the field of SCES is not well established or who has made significant contributions to establish vigorous activity of SCES research in such a country.
All winners are expected to deliver a talk at SCES2022. The Nevill Mott and Bryan Coles prizes are sponsored by Taylor & Francis with an award of 2000 USD. The winners are expected to deliver a talk at SCES2022 and to contribute by an article related to the award-winning research to the Philosophical Magazine.
Nominations, no more than two pages in length, should explain the importance of the work upon which the nomination is based and state explicitly the prize for which the candidate is being nominated. Please limit the number of nominations per candidate to three. For the early career prizes the date of the candidate’s PhD should be given. The nomination together with supporting materials, for example, a one-page CV of the candidate and one or two papers related to the nomination should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2022, with subject “Prize Nominations SCES 2022”. Chair of the SCES2022 prize committee is prof.dr. H. Harima (Kobe University).
