To all small-angle scatterers:

As posted at the SAS-2012 web-site [http://www.sas2012.com/], the 2012 Guinier Prize is being awarded to Professor Otto Glatter of the University of Graz, Austria. 
The official announcement and citation are as follows:


The 2012 Guinier Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Small-Angle Scattering is awarded to Professor Otto Glatter of the University of Graz, Austria: for his dedicated development, application, propagation and dissemination of small-angle X-ray, light and neutron scattering methods over more than 40 years; for his pioneering work on the development of the indirect Fourier Transform method and its application to solve practical problems in real materials across many fields, especially in polymer science, soft matter and nanoparticle systems, and its extension to concentrated systems; and for his universally recognized service in building up the international small-angle scattering community through teaching and training, software development and publication, development of instrumentation, and the writing of a widely used teaching text.

The Guinier Prize will be presented during the International Conference on Small-Angle Scattering (SAS2012) in Sydney, Australia, at a special Prize Award Ceremony. 
Please join us in warmly congratulating Professor Glatter on receiving this year's Guinier Prize.

Best wishes,
