Several new APS awards are making their debut this year, and those interested are urged to get them off to a good start by nominating worthy candidates.
First up is the Stanley Corrsin Award in Fluid Dynamics, intended as a mid-career award, for which the nomination deadline is May 31. Two new awards with deadlines of July 1 are the Landau-Spitzer Award in Plasma Physics, which will be administered jointly with the European Physical Society, and the Henry Primakoff Award for Early-Career Particle Physics, which will recognize outstanding research in elementary-particle physics performed by a physicist who has held the PhD for no more than 7 years, plus any career breaks.
