Call for nominations for 2015 physics and math awards – deadline is October 17
The upcoming awards are for physics and mathematics. Nominees should be women in physics and mathematics early in their careers (within 10 years of receiving a PhD) from one of the 81 scientifically lagging countries as defined by TWAS. Nominations are being accepted through October 17 and will be reviewed by a committee of eminent scientists representing the five regions in the discipline selected, including members of TWAS and OWSD, and chaired by OWSD President Dr. Fang Xin of China.
The ceremony will be held at the AAAS Annual Meeting in San Jose, California. Winners will be granted a cash prize of $5,000 and a year's access to Elsevier's ScienceDirect and Scopus , the world's largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. In addition, this year the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), based in Trieste, Italy, is offering each of the winners free attendance and accommodations at one of ICTP's workshops and conferences.
