The Robert R. Wilson Prize for Achievement in the Physics of Particle Accelerators recognizes and encourages outstanding achievement in the physics of particle accelerators. The prize consists of $7,500, an allowance for travel to the meeting at which the prize is awarded and a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient.
Nominations are open to scientists of all nations regardless of the geographical site at which the work was done. The prize shall ordinarily be awarded to one person but may be shared when all recipients have contributed to the same accomplishment. The prize will normally be awarded for contributions made at an early stage of the recipient's career. Nominations are active for three years.
