The following international awards will also be presented.
The Fuchs Memorial Award is presented by AAAR, GAeF and JAAST. It recognizes outstanding original research contributions to the field of aerosol science and technology. It is considered the highest honor for researchers in the field. Presented every four years at the IAC, the award memorializes late Professor Nikolai Albertovich Fuchs, the great Russian scientist who is regarded by many as the “father of aerosol science.” Deadline for receipt of nominations for this award was April 1, 2006, and additional details may be viewed at www.iara.org. The chair of the Fuchs Award Committee is Dr. John Seinfeld (Seinfeld@caltech.edu). The winner of the award will make a presentation highlighting key features of his/her work. A reception will immediately follow at the Minnesota Science Museum. Registrants will be able to visit the exhibits at the Science Museum.
International Aerosol Fellow Award
The International Aerosol Fellow Award is presented by the IARA. The
biennial award recognizes outstanding contributions to aerosol science
and technology through research, technical development, education, and/or
service. Every four years, presentation of the biennial award occurs
at the IAC. Deadline for receipt of
nominations of this award is May 1, 2006. Additional details may be viewed at www.iara.org. The chair of the IAF Committee is Professor Helmuth Horvath (Helmuth.Horvath@univie.ac).
The Fissan-Pui-TSI Award will be granted by the International Aerosol Research Assembly (IARA) to recognize international collaboration in the field of aerosol science and technology between researchers/engineers residing on at least two different continents. The award may be shared between two or more collaborating individuals or teams. Deadline for receipt of nominations for this award was May 1, 2006. Additional details may be viewed at www.iara.org. The chair of the Fissan-Pui TSI Award Committee is Kaarle Hameri (email@example.com)
Endowment of the Fissan-Pui-TSI Award Fund was initially made possible through a $75,000 donation from TSI Incorporated, to honor more than 30 years of collaboration between Fissan and Pui in the field of aerosol science and technology. Future contributions may be made by any individual, society or corporate entity to the endowed fund.
In addition to the above Awards, several National Organizations affiliated to IARA will hand out their society awards. IARA affiliated Association Presidents should contact the Technical Program Chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they would like an allocated time slot for handing out established society awards.
