Monination for the Paul H. Emmett Award
Sep 30 all-day

The Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis is sponsored by the Grace Davison operating segment of W.R. Grace & Co. It is administered by The Catalysis Society and is awarded biennially in odd numbered years, generally at the North American meeting of The Catalysis Society, where the awardee will be asked to give a plenary lecture. The award consists of a plaque and a prize of $5,000. An additional $500 is available for otherwise unreimbursed travel expenses.

The purpose of the Award is to recognize and encourage individual contributions in the field of catalysis with emphasis on discovery and understanding of catalytic phenomena, proposal of catalytic reaction mechanisms and identification of and description of catalytic sites and species.

Selection of the Award winner will be made by a committee of renowned scientists and engineers appointed by the President of The North American Catalysis Society. Selection shall be made without regard for sex, nationality or affiIiation. The award winner must not have turned 46 on April 1st of the award year, thus nomination documents should indicate the age and birth date of the nominee. [The next award is the 2013 Award year for this Emmett Award (nominations due by September 30, 2012). Thus, nominees should not yet be 46 on April 1, 2013.) Posthumous awards will be made only when knowledge of the awardee’s death is received after announcement of the Award Committee’s decision. Nominations for the Award should present the nominee’s qualifications, accomplishments, birthdate, and biography. A critical evaluation of the significance of publications and patents should be made as well as a statement of the particular contribution(s) on which the nomination is based. Nomination documents should be submitted in one complete package to the President of the Society along with no more than two seconding letters.

Selection of the 2013 Emmett Award winner will be made by a committee of renowned scientists and engineers appointed by the President of The North American Catalysis Society. Nomination packages for the Award must be received by 30 September 2012.

All nomination packages (one ELECTRONIC COPY) for the Emmett Award should be should be sent to Enrique Iglesia, President, North American Catalysis Society; at iglesia@berkeley.edu. Receipt of any nomination, will be confirmed by an email message sent to any nominator.

Nomination for the Michel Boudart Award
Nov 1 all-day

 
(An Award presented jointly by the North American Catalysis Society and the European Federation of Catalysis Societies)

The Michel Boudart Award for the Advancement of Catalysis is sponsored by the Haldor Topsøe Company, and is administered jointly by the North American Catalysis Society and the European Federation of Catalysis Societies. The Award will be presented biennially in odd numbered years. The recipient will give plenary lectures at the biannual meetings of the North American Catalysis Society (NAM) and the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS) (EuropaCat). The award consists of a plaque or object of art and a prize of $6,000. Up to an additional $2,000 will be made available for otherwise non-reimbursed travel expenses.

The Award recognizes and encourages individual contributions to the elucidation of the mechanism and active sites involved in catalytic phenomena and to the development of new methods or concepts that advance the understanding and/or practice of heterogeneous catalysis. The Award selection process will emphasize accomplishments and contributions published within the five preceding years. Candidates may be nominated without any restriction of national origin, thus reflecting the international scope of the career and contributions of Michel Boudart.

The recipient of the Michel Boudart Award will be selected by a committee of renowned researchers appointed jointly by the Presidents of the North American Catalysis Society and the European Federation of Catalysis Societies. The selection shall be made without regard for age, sex, affiliation, or national origin. Recipients of NACS Awards or Lectureships within the last 5 years are eligible for the Michel Boudart Award.

Nominations should clearly state the qualifications and accomplishments of the nominee and should also include a CV and no more than two supporting letters. A critical evaluation of the significance of publications and patents should be made, as well as a statement of the particular contribution(s) on which the nomination is based. Each nomination is to be submitted as one complete package (nomination letter, CV, 2 supporting letters, and justification).

After September 2012, one complete electronic copy of the nomination packages for the 2013 Boudart Award should be sent to the President of The North American Catalysis Society (Enrique Iglesia; iglesia@berkeley.edu) or the President of The European Federation of Catalysis Societies (Avelino Corma; acorma@itq.upv.es) by 1 November 2012. Nominators should expect to receive email confirmation of their submission.

Nomination for the F. G. Ciapetta Lectureship in Catalysis
Nov 13 all-day

 
The F.G. Ciapetta Lectureship in Catalysis is sponsored by the Grace Davison operating segment of W.R. Grace & Co. and The North American Catalysis Society. The Society administers this Lectureship. It is to be awarded biennially in even numbered years. The Award consists of a plaque and an honorarium of $5,000. Travel expenses are provided through a travel escrow fund, administered by the NACS, to be used on a “as needed basis” for the recipients from academia or industrial companies (with < $100 Million annual sales; up to $3,000. for employees of larger companies). The Award is given in recognition of substantial contributions to one or more areas in the field of catalysis with emphasis on industrially significant catalysts and catalytic processes and the discovery of new catalytic reactions and systems of potential industrial importance. The awardee will be selected on the basis of his/her contributions to the catalytic literature and the current timeliness of these research contributions. The recipient may be invited to visit and lecture to each of the affiliated Clubs/Societies with which mutually satisfactory arrangements can be made. Selection of the awardee will be made without regard to age, sex, nationality, or affiliation. The nomination should contain a critical evaluation of the significance of candidate's qualifications should be made as well as a statement of the particular contribution(s) on which the nomination is based. Nomination documents (nomination letter, CV, justification, and no more than 2 seconding letters) in one complete package should be submitted electronically to the President of the Society. Nominations for the Ciapetta Award will close on 1 November 2013. All nomination packages for the Ciapetta Award should be should be sent to Enrique Iglesia, President, North American Catalysis Society; at iglesia@berkeley.edu. Receipt of any nomination, will be confirmed by an email message sent to any nominator.
