2017 Guido Altarelli Prize

The Guido Altarelli Award honours the memory of the late Guido Altarelli, a pioneer of the unravelling of the strong interaction and the structure of hadrons, an outstanding communicator of particle physics, and a mentor and strong supporter of Junior Scientists. The Guido Altarelli Award consists of a certificate and prize money. It is awarded to Junior Scientists for outstanding scientific contributions to the fields covered by the DIS Conference series. 

Candidates for the prize should have a maximum of eight years of research experience (excluding career interruptions) following the PhD, at the first day of the conference. The selection is the task of the Selection Committee, which consists of experimental and theoretical particle physicists, and a Chair, who are nominated by the Chair of the International Advisory Committee (IAC) of the DIS Conference in consultation with its members.
