Event: Call for nominations for the 2024 IAMP Weyl–Wigner Award
Closing date: 31 December 2023
We invite you to nominate distinguished scientists for the 2024 Weyl–Wigner Award conferred by the Standing Committee of the International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics (ICGTMP).
The purpose of the Award shall be to recognise outstanding contributions to the understanding of physics through group theory.
The Weyl–Wigner Award was created with the demand to recognise outstanding contributions to the understanding of physics through group theory, and continuing the tradition of the Wigner Medal and keeping its high standards of quality and excellence.
Contributions admitted by the Award may include the development and application of mathematical methods, applications of group theoretical methods in chemistry and other sciences, experimental predictions or formulations of general laws of nature using methods of group theory or representation theory, and other related developments. Group theory shall be construed in its widest sense, to include related mathematical structures.
The first Weyl–Wigner Award was awarded in Strasbourg in July 2022 during the ICGTMP Group34 Colloquium.
Nominations should include name and affiliation of the nominee, together with at least a summary of their achievements that would be considered for the Weyl–Wigner Award.
More detailed nomination materials, such as letters of recommendation, may be requested later if needed.
The 2024 Weyl–Wigner Award will be awarded coinciding with the XXXV ICGTMP (Group33/35), to be held in Cotonou, Benin, 18–22 July 2023.
Nominations may be submitted by e-mail to:
Chair of the 2024 Weyl–Wigner Award Selection Committee
