CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The International Program Committee (IPC) is looking for prominent physicists who are able to give an enchanting plenary talk (45 minutes including 5 minutes discussion) on one of the focus topics of SCES 2017.
IPC would also like receiving nominations of excellent speakers capable of giving an invited talk (25 + 5 minutes) introducing a particular topic session.
Colleagues willing to organize a focused symposium are strongly encouraged to submit their suggestions.
IPC highly appreciates the nomination of young and budding scientists and also encourage you to consider speakers promoting emergent and possible attractive future fields of research.
To facilitate the nomination process we have prepared a user-friendly web forms on the SCES 2017 official website.
Please, submit your nomination at http://www.sces2017.org/call-for-nomination.
We appreciate your kind submitting the nominations at your earliest convenience but not later than by the end of October 2016
Thank you very much for helping us to make SCES 2017 an enjoyable meeting for all participants.
We are looking forward to see you in Prague at SCES 2017.

Call for SCES2017 Prizes Nominations
We are soliciting nominations for recipients of the SCES2017 Prizes for significant contributions to the study of strongly correlated electron systems.
Following the tradition established at SCES 2013 in Tokyo three early-career Prizes will be awarded in Prague during SCES 2017:
The Nevill F. Mott Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the theory of strongly correlated electron systems.
The Bryan R. Coles Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the experimental study or discovery of strongly correlated electron materials and phenomena.
The Bernard Coqblin Prize will be awarded to a person who has made significant contributions to the physics of strongly correlated electron systems achieved in a country where the field of SCES is not well established or who has made significant contributions to establish vigorous activity of SCES research in such a country. In this case the early career status of prospective recipient is not a necessary condition.
Each prize carries a monetary award of 2000 Euro and each winner is expected to deliver a talk at SCES2017. Up to two SCES prizes are sponsored by Taylor & Francis. The winner of a prize sponsored by Taylor & Francis is expected to contribute by an article related to the award-winning research to Philosophical Magazine.
Nominations, no more than two pages in length, should explain the importance of the work upon which the nomination is based, state explicitly the prize for which the candidate is being nominated, and include the date of the candidate’s PhD. The nominees are to be early career researchers being active in research no more than 8 years past PhD. The nomination together with supporting materials, for example, a one-page CV of the candidate and one or two papers related to the nomination should be submitted via Prizes nomintaion form by November 15, 2016.
