EFTF-IFCS 2017 AWARDS

During the 2017 Joint Meeting of the European Time and Frequency Forum (EFTF) and the IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium (IFCS) in Besançon several Awards will be presented in recognition of noteworthy achievement by scientists and engineers in the time and frequency community.

Nominations are welcome from any Senior Scientist known in the Community. All nominations must be submitted in writing before March 15th, 2017 (e-mail preferred) and must contain the name of the nominee, his or her current address, a proposed citation, a short résumé of the candidate together with the description of accomplishments and reasons for the nomination (up to two pages in total). A list of publications should be added. The nomination furthermore must contain the name and address of the nominating scientist.

European Frequency and Time Award

The award, which is open to anyone working in the fields traditionally associated with the European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF), recognizes outstanding contributions in all fields covered by the EFTF either for fundamental advances or important applications. The significance of contributions includes the degree of initiative and creativity, the quality of work, the degree of success obtained as well as the worldwide scientific impact on the Time and Frequency Community. The European Frequency and Time Award has been awarded since 1993 first biannually, from 2005 annually.

Marcel Ecabert Award

The Marcel Ecabert Award of the EFTF honours the excellent achievements of the recipient (life time award) or an institution in the field of time and frequency. It is named after the late Marcel Ecabert, founding member of the EFTF and member of its Executive Committee.

EFTF Young Scientist Award

The EFTF Young Scientist Award is conferred in recognition of a personal contribution that demonstrated a high degree of initiative and creativity and lead to already established or easily foreseeable outstanding advances in the field of time and frequency metrology. The award honours a person under the age of 40 at the date of the opening session of the conference. The goal is to encourage scientific endeavour and competition and to help young scientists along their career paths.
