The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation invites nominations for ISGRG Fellowship to recognize its outstanding members. The primary criterion for election is excellence in research, especially the impact of candidate’s work on the development of our field. The candidate will be generally expected to have made additional contributions to the field, for example through service, and/or outreach, and/or books and monographs, etc. In exceptional cases such criteria could constitute the primary basis of nomination provided these activities have had influence on a significant portion of our community, not just the home institution of the candidate.
Nominations are due by December 31st, 2015. The elected Fellows will be inducted during the Business Meeting of the Society at GR 21 in New York City, July, 11-15, 2016. Any member of the Society can make nominations but self-nominations will not be considered. The nomination packet consists of:
i) A letter summarizing the basis for nomination;
ii) An up-to-date CV and publication list of the nominee;
iii) 1 to 3 supporting letters from members of the Society, and,
iv) A proposed citation.
The nominator must also verify that the nominee is an active member of the ISGRG Society.
Once made, the nomination will remain active for two additional rounds. In particular, all nominations made in the previous two cycles (i.e., for GR19 and GR20) will remain active for this cycle. Further details about ISGRG Fellowship can be found at http://www.isgrg.org/fellowrules.php
The Selection Committee consists of Eanna Flanagan, James Hough, Carlo Rovelli, and Robert Wald (chair), together with ex officio members Beverly Berger, Gary Horowitz, and Malcolm MacCallum. Nominations should be submitted electronically as PDF files to the chair of the Committee, Robert Wald, at rmwa[AT]uchicago.edu.
