The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) has established the Young Scientist Prize in Particle Physics, which will be awarded every two years. The first two prizes will be given in 2008, preferentially one prize in experimental and one in theoretical particle physics.
Therefore the Commission on Particles and Fields (C11) of IUPAP solicits nominations of outstanding young experimental or theoretical particle physicists for the 2008 Young Scientists Prizes.
Both prizes, consisting each of an IUPAP medal, a certificate citing the recipient's scientific achievement and a small cash award, will be presented at the 34th International Conference on High Energy Physics, Philadelphia, PA, USA, July 30th - August 5th, 2008.
Candidates for the prize must have a maximum of 8 years of research experience (excluding career interruptions) following the PhD.
Nominations can be made by experimental or theoretical particle physicists who know the work of the nominee well. A nomination should consist of a letter explaining the nominee's qualification and scientific achievement, a complete CV and list of publications. Materials should be sent by postal and electronic mail to the Commission Chair by February 1, 2008:
