IUPAP-TIFR Homi Bhabha Medal Medal and Prize 2011

The IUPAP-TIFR Homi Bhabha Medal and Prize (http://www.tifr.res.in/~HomiBhabhaMedal) has been established by the IUPAP and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai (India) in 2010 to honour Homi Jehangir Bhabha, theoretical cosmic ray physicist well-known for Bhabha-Heitler Cascade theory and relativistic electron scattering. Homi Bhabha founded the TIFR in 1945 and initiated the nuclear energy program in India in 1951 with strong support from the well-known philanthropist and industrialist JRD Tata and the Government of India then led by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Homi Bhabha initiated experimental programs for the study of cosmic ray particles and their interactions with instruments either carried aloft to the top of the atmosphere with balloons or placed in laboratories at high altitude or deep underground. The Homi Bhabha Medal and Prize consists of a certificate, a medal, a cheque for US $ 5000 and an invitation to visit the TIFR, Mumbai to give a public lecture and will be awarded biennially at the International Cosmic Ray Conferences (ICRCs), held generally in odd-numbered years.

The IUPAP-TIFR Homi Bhabha Medal and Prize will be awarded to an active scientist who has made distinguished contributions in the field of high energy cosmic ray physics and astro-particle physics over an extended academic career. The winner of the prize will be selected by the members of the C4 Commission and a senior member of the cosmic ray group at TIFR nominated by the Director, TIFR. The winner of the 2011 prize will be presented the prize certificate at the ICRC 2011 in Beijing, China, in August 2011 and invited to visit the TIFR at a mutually convenient time sometime during the next 2 years to deliver a public lecture. The Director, TIFR will present the Homi Bhabha medal and a cheque for US $ 5000 to the winner on this occasion. The winner will be provided with reasonable travel expenses and local hospitality for the visit to Mumbai and other TIFR laboratories in India.

The nominations for the prize to be awarded at the ICRC 2011 in Beijing in August 2011 should be sent to Suresh Tonwar, Chair of the Cosmic Ray Commission (C4) along with supporting information and letters from two co-sponsors at the following address:

Yodh Prize

The Yodh Prize (http://hep.ps.uci.edu/~yodhprize) was established in 1998 to recognize a scientist whose research career has made substantial contributions to understanding in the field of Cosmic Rays. The research should have had a major impact in the field. There is no age restriction. The Prize was endowed by Gaurang and  Kanwal Yodh to the University of California Irvine Foundation. The awardee will be  selected by an international committee of distinguished scientists in  the field of Cosmic Rays and Astroparticle Physics. The winner will be invited to visit the University of California, Irvine, to present a colloquium to the faculty and students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at some time during the following year. The award consists of a prize of US $ 2000 and will be presented at the 32nd ICRC at Beijing, China,  in August 2011.

Nominations supporting the case, including the nominee's curriculum vitae  and publication list of the important publications, should be submitted to the Secretary of the Yodh Prize Committee. The sponsor may also wish to ask two co-sponsors to send letters supporting the nomination. Nominations should be sent to the following address:

Shakti Duggal Award 2011

The Shakti P. Duggal Award was established in 1983 to recognize outstanding work by a young scientist in the field of cosmic ray physics. The award consists of a prize of US $ 1200.  The winner is invited to visit the Bartol Research Institute at the University of Delaware to present a colloquium at some time during the following year. The intent of this award is to recognize and inspire young cosmic ray scientists early in their careers. The recipient will not have attained the age of 36 on January 1, 2011. Subject to this age limitation, any person from anywhere in the world who has contributed significantly to the field of cosmic ray physics including astro-particle physics is eligible for consideration. The selection of the prize winner will be made by an International Committee  and the prize will be awarded at the inaugural session of the ICRC 2011 in Beijing, China in August 2011.

Nominations of potential recipients are now being solicited.  Nominators  are requested to send to the committee secretariat at the Bartol Research Institute their nominee's curriculum vitae and publication list,  a supporting letter, and, if possible, copies of one or two of the candidate's most significant publications.
