Call for Nominations for 2015 Prize, Awards, APS DPP Fellowship, and Executive Committee Elections

Deadline: Wednesday, April 1, 2015

A prize or award presented by the American Physical Society is one of the highest honors a physicist can receive. The Division of Plasma Physics annually solicits nominations for one prize and three awards. The Katherine E. Weimer Award (a DPP award) selection committee solicits nominations every third year starting in 2002; skip two years between awards. The next Weimer Award will be presented in 2017. The Landau-Spitzer Award (a APS and EPS award) selection committee solicits nominations every two years starting in 2012; skip one year between awards. The next Landau-Spitzer Award will be presented in 2016. Please take time to nominate exceptional DPP professional peers.

Anyone other than a member of the prize or award selection committee may submit one nomination or seconding letter for each prize or award in any given year.
