Nominate a Fellow
Nominations may be made at any time during the year, but only those received by the GSNP deadline, currently May 1, 2013 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.

University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Citation: For establishment and exploring the deep connections between non-equilibrium phase transitions and avalanche phenomena in diverse fields encompassing materials, geophysics and neuroscience.
Citation: For his contributions to the foundations of chaos and the study of nonlinear dynamics in complex networks, including the discovery of synthetic rescues and pioneering work on network synchronization phenomena, cascading failures, and the control of nonlinear network dynamics.
Citation: For seminal advances in the characterization and modeling of complex systems, especially the proposal and development of cartographic methods for the representation of large complex networks.
Georgia Institute of Technology
Citation: For pioneering and creative experimental contributions to the characterization and control of complex fluid and pattern formation phenomena.
Virginia Technical Institute
Citation: For seminal and sustained contributions to the understanding of non-equilibrium, universal properties of reaction diffusion processes and driven diffusive systems, with applications in materials science and biological systems.
