Dear Colleagues:

The Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society has established an award to honor exceptional contributions to instrumentation. The period of nominations for the 2017 award is now open.  

The Award will be given for advancing the field of particle physics through the invention, refinement, or application of instrumentation and detectors. In particular, the award will be given for one or more of the following:  

  • Conceptualization and development of unique instrumentation that has made a significant impact on the field.
  • Demonstration of the innovative use of instrumentation.
  • Stimulation of other researchers to use new techniques and methods.
  • Authorship of research papers or books that have had an influential role in the use of instrumentation.
  • Achievement in particle physics instrumentation through dedication over an entire career, or through significant impact at an early career stage.

    Award recipient(s) will present an award lecture at the 2017 DPF Meeting at Fermilab. Nominations need the following components:

  • A nominating letter of not more than 5,000 characters (about two pages) evaluating the qualifications of the nominee(s).
  • A biographical sketch or CV
  • At least two, but not more than three, seconding letters.

    Nominations will be active for three years. The award shall ordinarily be given to one person but the award may be shared by up to three people when all recipients have contributed to the same accomplishment. Nominations for the 2017 award will be accepted through Academic Jobs Online (AJO) from now through June 15, 2017. Nominations should be submitted at:

    https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/award/7116 and click the "Nominate" link on the 7th line under "Description".

    Nominators should submit all of the material listed above except the supporting letters. The names and email addresses of the supporting letter-writers should also be included in the nomination packet. If you encounter difficulty with the site, contact Bob Bernstein at rhbob@fnal.gov.

    It is important to remember the membership of APS is diverse and global, so the Prize and Award winners as well as Fellows of the APS should reflect that diversity. Nominations of women, members of under-represented minority groups, and scientists from outside the United States are especially encouraged. Nominations of qualified junior scientists are especially welcome this year and in subsequent odd- numbered years.  

    If you have any questions about the award, please contact the award committee chair, Marina Artuso (martuso@syr.edu).
