Simon Eidelman Prize

In memory of our beloved colleague Simon Eidelman (1948-2021), a prize will be awarded to a young researcher (<8 years experience after Ph.D.) for contributions to experimental hadron physics, including theory developments that led to significant experimental progress.

An Ad Hoc committee will solicit nominations for the prize. Nominations can be made by anyone, but self-nominations are not accepted. The nomination should include a short cover letter justifying the nomination together with the names of two referees, a copy of the candidate’s CV, and a list of their main contributions to the field (usually publications but other scientific outputs such as software packages will also be considered).

The prize consists of (a) a plenary talk at the conference; (b) a certificate; (c) a financial award of 500 €.

Simon was a very important member of the hadron physics community and of the IAC of this conference.

He encouraged and supported young researchers and his scientific contributions to the field were numerous and will have a lasting impact on future generations.
