FOMMS Medal

Nominations are now being encouraged for the FOMMS 2018 Medal.  The FOMMS Medal is awarded for profound and lasting contributions to the development of computational methods and their application to the field of molecular-based modeling and simulation.  The past awardees are Michele Parrinello (2009), Keith Gubbins (2012), and Carol Hall (2015).  To nominate a distinguished colleague for the FOMMS 2018 Medal, send an e-mail to the conference chair (Ilja Siepmann, siepmann@umn.edu) with a short nominating statement (1-2 pages). The nomination can be supported by a group (and signatures do not count for the page limit).  Supporting letters beyond the nominating statement will not be considered.  The deadline for nominations is June 26, 2017.

The FOMMS Medal honors "profound and lasting contributions by one or more individuals to the development of computational methods and their application to the field of molecular-based modeling and simulation."

Winners of the FOMMS Medal receive a medal, an honorarium, full meeting expenses and give the last lecture of the conference right before the banquet.


Past Recipients of the FOMMS Medal:

2015: Carol Hall in recognition of her accomplishments in molecular theory as well as molecular simulation.

Prof. Hall is the Camille Dreyfus Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University.  She has won numerous awards, served as the AIChE Institute Lecturer in 2007, and is a member of the National Academy of Engineering.  She has been at the forefront of several important research areas related to computation and theory, including the modeling of phase separation in colloidal suspensions, modeling and equations of state for chain molecules, and coarse-grained simulations of protein aggregation.

 
2012: Professor Keith Gubbins                                                                                  
2009: Professor Michele Parrinello
