Call for Nominations: Lilienfeld Prize Honors Both Research and Communication
Most APS prizes are for research in a specific area, but a few cut across all disciplines. One of the most prestigious of these is the Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize, which recognizes both outstanding research and the ability to communicate to a broader audience. Nominations are currently being sought for the 2007 prize. The deadline for receipt of nominations is July 1, 2006. The Prize, which is awarded annually, consists of $10,000, a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient, plus expenses for three lectures by the recipient given at an APS meeting, a research university, and a predominantly undergraduate institution. Nominations are active for three Prize cycles. Further information about the Prize, and a list of past recipients, can be obtained on the web.
