The Neutron Scattering Society of America is requesting nomination 
packages for the Clifford G. Shull Prize in Neutron Science.  The 
prize is being given to recognize outstanding research in neutron 
science and leadership promoting the North American neutron 
scattering community in honor of Clifford G. Shull, who received the 
Nobel Prize in 1994 with Bert Brockhouse for seminal developments in 
the field of neutron science.

Nature: The prize will consist of a plaque and an honorarium of 
$5,000 to be presented at the American Conference on Neutron 
Scattering (ACNS).  The next ACNS will be hosted by the NIST Center 
for Neutron Research, and will be held in the Inn and Conference 
Center for the University of Maryland University College in College 
Park, MD June 6-10, 2004.  Please see the conference web site: 
http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/acns.  The recipient is expected to present 
an address at the conference.  A stipend towards travel expenses to 
the conference will be paid in addition to the honorarium.

Rules of Eligibility: Consideration shall be given to outstanding 
research accomplishments and contributions to the advancement of 
neutron science, including developing or supporting the North 
American neutron scattering community, through teaching, research, 
technical leadership and scientific writings.  The award shall be 
granted to an individual without regard to race, color, national 
origin, sex, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation.

Nomination Procedure: Nominations are solicited from any member of 
the NSSA.  Nomination packages should include a nomination letter of 
not more than 1,000 words from a NSSA member evaluating the nominee's 
qualifications and identifying the specific work to be recognized and 
how the work has led to the advancement of neutron science.  The 
nomination package can include up to two additional letters of 
support and a copy of the nominee's curriculum vitae.  Do not include 
reprints of scientific articles, but specific references to 
particularly important published work should be made in the 
nomination and supporting letters.   Nomination packages will be 
accepted only electronically in pdf format.  The packages should be 
sent by e-mail to Professor Rob Briber, President of the NSSA, at 
rbriber at umd.edu and should be received no later than November 1, 2003.

A prize committee selected by the officers of NSSA will be 
established shortly after the nominations are received to select the 
recipient.  The recipient will be announced in January 2004.  The 
prize committee's selection must be endorsed by the NSSA officers. 
Additional information on the prize is available on the NSSA web site 
at:  http://www.neutronscattering.org.

Establishment and Support: The prize was established in 2002 and is 
administered by the Neutron Scattering Society of America.  The NSSA 
is currently soliciting funds from members and industrial sources 
toward the endowment of the prize.  Individuals or organizations 
wishing to contribute to the prize endowment fund should contact 
Prof. Dave Belanger, NSSA Treasurer, Physics Dept., University of 
California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064  (e-mail: dave at dave.ucsc.edu).
