ICMC AWARDS

Meritorious Student Paper - ABSTRACT DEADLINE WILL NOT APPLY

ICMC is offering to waive the conference fee for bona fide students who submit and present a paper at the conference. The paper should contain an account of work in which the student has been the main contributor. A letter of recommendation from the student’s head of Department or research leader should be submitted at the time of registration for the conference. The student should register for the conference following notification of acceptance of the submitted abstract.

The award, in the form of a signed certificate, will be made in two categories, cryogenic materials and superconducting material.

The award for meritorious paper will be made after the ICMC awards committee has assessed all papers.

ICMC Life Time Achievement Award

“To recognize a lifetime’s achievement in advancing the knowledge of cryogenic materials”

The award consists of a certificate, a $2,500 honorarium, a plaque (designed by the Awards Committee), up to $2,500 to cover personal travel expenses to accept the award, and free registration for this year’s conference and two subsequent ICMC conferences.

Nominations may be made by all experts in the field. The nomination will consist of a (two to three page) letter addressed to the Awards Committee Chairman and contain a thorough description of the candidate’s achievements in the field of cryogenic materials. A CV and a publication list of the candidate should be attached.

Three nomination letters will be needed to qualify for the selection procedure. The candidate must either still be active in the field or have recently retired.

The ‘lead’ nomination letter should address in detail:

- the quality of his / her research,
- the innovation of his / her research,
- the international recognition gained for his / her work,
- the worldwide reputation of the candidate, and
- the candidate’s impact on the field.

Two additional nomination letters should clearly show a familiarity with the candidates work and achievements.

The deadline for nominations is May 31st 2018, three months before the opening of the conference.

Please submit nominations, preferably by e-mail, to the ICMC Awards Committee Chairman:
