Nominations Sought for Ken Hass Outstanding Student Paper Award
The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding student papers on industrial applications of physics submitted to a sorting category or a focus session sponsored or The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding student papers on industrial applications of physics submitted to a sorting category or a focus session sponsored or co-sponsored by the Forum on Industrial & Applied Physics (FIAP) at the APS March meeting. The award consists of $1,000 and a certificate citing the name of the recipient and the title of the paper. It will be awarded annually at the FIAP business meeting.
Establishment & Support: The Ken Hass Outstanding Student Paper Award is named in recognition of the many contributions of Ken Hass to the industrial applications of physics (especially automotive applications of theoretical solid-state physics) and of his service to the APS in the FIAP Chair-line from 2001 to 2004. As Director of the Physics Department at Ford Research, Ken Hass was strongly committed to promoting science education at the pre-college and college level. The award was endowed in 2011 by FIAP.
Rules and Eligibility: The award is for an outstanding student paper on industrial applications of physics submitted to a FIAP sorting category or a focus session sponsored or co-sponsored by FIAP at the APS March meeting. The student nominated for the award must be the lead author of the paper and must present the paper at the APS March meeting. The nominee must be a student at the time of the submission deadline for the meeting. Both graduate and undergraduate students are eligible.Nomination and Selection Process: The deadline for submission of nominations is the same as the abstract submission deadline for the APS March meeting. The nomination must include
- The abstract submitted to the APS March meeting, the abstract log number, and the sorting category number.
- A letter of nomination from the student’s faculty advisor or industrial/government lab mentor, citing the achievements of the student, his/her contributions to the research described in the abstract, and the industrial or commercial relevance of this research. (Self-nominations will not be accepted.)
The award-winning abstract will be selected by a committee appointed by the FIAP Chair. Additional details about the nomination and selection process will be emailed to FIAP members 2-4 weeks before the abstract submission deadline for the APS March meeting. These details will also be posted at the FIAP web page.
Notes: Sorting categories for the APS March meeting are designated as FIAP sorting categories by the APS Executive Officer. At present, sorting categories 2 (semiconductors) and 16 (applications) are designated as FIAP sorting categories. Since these categories may change, applicants should verify that their sorting category is sponsored or co-sponsored by FIAP.
