Nominate a Fellow
Nominations may be made at any time during the year, but only those received by the GSNP deadline, currently Friday, May 30, 2014 will be considered for action in the same year. Nominations are submitted online.
Nominations on which no favorable action is taken are generally reconsidered the following year. Sponsors may, however, resubmit the nomination with updated supporting material prior to the deadline for the following year.
Each year, the GSNP Fellowship Committee will review nominations for APS Fellows and make recommendations to the APS. The total number of APS Fellows who may be elected in a given year is limited to one-half of one percent of the total APS membership. Therefore, the selection process is quite competitive, and sponsors should be aware of this when preparing nominations.
Nominators must ensure that the case they prepare for the Fellowship Committee is well documented, following the guidelines and requirements. In general, the Fellowship Committee looks for sustained contributions to the field over a period of time rather than a single, albeit brilliant, piece of research. Supporting letters which provide specific details about the candidate’s work, its impact, and the breadth of her/his contributions are particularly useful.

APS Fellows Nominated by GSNP
University of Houston
Citation: For seminal and sustained contributions to the understanding of the dynamics of complex systems, particularly concerning non-equilibrium phase transitions, emergent behavior, and dynamics in adaptive networks.
CEA - Saclay
Citation: For numerous contributions to nonequilibrium critical phenomena and to the characterization of complex spatiotemporal patterns and fluctuations, in particular for his seminal role in exploring the physics of active matter.
University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Citation: For fundamental contributions to the understanding of localized solutions, of their stability in nonlinear wave equations, and of their relevance to applications from atomic physics, nonlinear optics, and granular crystals.
Santa Fe Institute
Citation: For fundamental contributions at the interface between nonlinear physics, statistical physics and computer science, including complex network analysis, phase transitions in NP-complete problems, and the computational complexity of physical simulation.
University of Potsdam
Citation: For many fundamental contributions to the statistical theory of chaos, pattern formation, and synchronization.
Citation: For seminal work on complex networks, nonlinear oscillators, and synchronization phenomena.
