Call for Nominations for the 2001 ENSA/Walter Haelg Prize for European
Neutron Scattering.

The European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) are pleased to announce
that the nominations for the second ENSA Walter Hälg Prize for European
Neutron Scattering are now open.

The prize was made available to ENSA by a donation from Professor Walter
Hälg, the founder of neutron scattering science in Switzerland. The prize of
10'000 Swiss francs is awarded  biennially to a European scientist for
outstanding, coherent work in neutron scattering with long-term impact on
scientific and/or technical neutron scattering applications. The 2001
ENSA/Hälg prize will be awarded in a special ceremony session of the
International Conference on Neutron Scattering (ICNS2001), to be held in
Munich between 9-13 September 1999. The detailed guide-lines of the ENSA
Walter Hälg Prize are listed on the ENSA web pages (www.psi.ch/ensa).

Nominations for the 2001 Walter Hälg Prize of the European Neutron
Scattering Association (ENSA) may be submitted by European scientists as
individuals or on behalf of a Division, Section or Group. To establish a
high standard it is necessary that the Committee receive proposals that
represent the breadth and strength of European neutron scattering.
Nominations should include the motivation for the award, a brief curriculum
vitae of the nominee and a short list of major publications. Letters of
support from authorities in the field which outline the importance of the
work would also be helpful. Nominations for the prize will be treated in
confidence and although they will be acknowledged there will be no further
communication. It should be further noted that all unsuccessful nominations
for the 1999 Prize will receive automatic reconsideration for the 2001

Nominations for the ENSA Walter Hälg Prize will be examined by a Selection
Committee consisting of authorities representing the major scientific
disciplines. It includes acknowledged experts both in neutron scattering and
from outside the neutron scattering community. Membership in the Selection
Committee is obtained by invitation extended by the ENSA Committee.

Nominations should sent by post before 12 June 2001 to the Chairman of the
Selection Committee:

Professor Bob Cywinski
Chairman of the European Neutron Scattering Association
Department of Physics and Astronomy
University of Leeds
Leeds LS2 9JT
