Call for nominations for the 2019 ICO/ICTP Gallieno Denardo Award as widely as possible and nominate good candidates
ICO, the International Commission for Optics, and ICTP, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, have agreed in 2000 to establish a joint prize, called the ICO/ICTP Award. In September 2007, the ICTP and ICO agreed to dedicate the Award to the memory and legacy of the late Prof. Gallieno Denardo, who greatly contributed to the development of optics research within ICTP and in developing countries.
The award is reserved for young researchers from developing countries (as defined by the United Nations), who conduct their research in a developing country. The award will be given to scientists less than 40 years old (on December 31 of the year for which the award is given), for significant contributions in Optics and Photonics and contribution to the promotion of research activities in Optics and Photonics in their own or another developing country.
The award consists of the following:
- The ICO gives a cash amount of US$1000 and a diploma. - The ICTP invites the winner to attend a three-week-long Winter College at Trieste at the next appropriate opportunity, and to give a seminar on his/her work when appropriate. ICTP will pay for travel and living expenses.
