The Senior and Junior BEC Awards 2013 honor outstanding research in Experimental and/or Theoretical Physics of Quantum Degenerate Atomic Gases. The senior prize recognizes work that is firmly established and has significantly advanced the field of quantum degenerate gases. The Junior Prze recognizes outstanding work by a young scientist for independent research early in his or her academic career. Each prize consists of a 2,500 Euro cash award, and a certificate citing the contributions of the recipients. The prizes are awarded under the auspices of the biannual BEC conference and are sponsored by Toptica Photonics AG. Full details here.
