The Topical Group of Few-Body Systems (GFB) of the American Physical Society and the European Research Committee on Few Body Problems in Physics (ERCFBP) announce a new award to recognize distinguished achievement in Few-Body Physics, the Faddeev medal, named in honour of our outstanding colleague Ludwig Faddeev (see his dedicated page on wikipedia).
The announcement of this prestigious award was given on August 11, 2016, during the 23th European Conference on Few-Body Problems in Physics, held in Aarhus (Denmark), in the presence of Prof. Faddeev (see photo).
The Faddeev medal  will be awarded to a scientist who has advanced the field of few-body physics significantly—either through ground-breaking research or due to crucial progress achieved over the course of the career. The medalist will be selected by an international panel of experts and the medal awarded every three years during the International Conference on Few-body Problems in Physics.
The first medal will be awarded in 2018 at the International Few-Body Conference in Caen.
The nomination deadline is May 31, 2017. Please send the nomination packet in .tar form to <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
