Gjønnes Medal in Electron Crystallography Call for Nominations

[Jon Gjonnes]

The Gjønnes Medal in Electron Crystallography recognizes an outstanding contribution to the field of electron crystallography. The award is accompanied by a certificate and funding to present an invited Keynote Lecture at the triennial International Congress of Crystallography. The award is named in honour of its first recipient, Jon Gjønnes of the U. of Oslo, who received the award at the XXI IUCr Congress in Osaka in August 2008.

This award is managed by the Awards Sub-committee of the Commission on Electron Crystallography (CEC) of the IUCr. This Sub-committee is responsible for soliciting, evaluating and recommending a nominee to members of the CEC for final approval, or recommending that no award be made.

Nominations are now open for the Gjønnes Medal in Electron Crystallography. Nomination is open to scientists and engineers in all areas of electron crystallography. The next Gjønnes Medal will be awarded at the Hyderabad Congress in August 2017. Further details of the award and the nomination procedure can be found at

The deadline for receipt of nominations is April 30, 2016.
