Recipients of IEEE-NPSS PAST Doctoral Student Award, APS-DPB Thesis Award and the Robert R. Wilson Prize will speak in regard to their particular award.
The ceremony will close with the Student Poster Prizes based on the judging conducted at the student poster session.
The following list of Accelerator Prizes will be presented at IPAC'18.
IEEE-NPSS PAST Award
The IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society awards the Particle Accelerator Science and Technology Award to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the development of particle accelerator science and technology.
For 2018, the award winners names and citations are:
Dr. Hermann Grunder, Director Emeritus ANL, “For far reaching contributions to accelerator science and technology”;
Dr. Sandra Biedron, University of New Mexico, "For broad impact in accelerator science and technology”.
IEEE-NPSS PAST Doctoral Student Award
The IEEE-NPSS PAST Doctoral Student Award recognizes significant and innovative technical contributions to the field of particle accelerator science and technology as demonstrated in a student’s doctoral thesis.
The IEEE NPSS PAST Student Thesis award winner is Martina Martinello of Fermilab. The citation reads:
“For contributions to physical understanding of limiting factors in SRF cavities”.
APS-DPB Thesis Award
The APS-DPB Thesis Award recognizes doctoral thesis research of outstanding quality and achievement in beam physics and engineering.
Spencer J. Gessner
SLAC - National Accelerator Laboratory
"In recognition of an original theoretical treatment and an experimental demonstration of accelerating positrons in a hollow channel plasma wakefield accelerator."
"for experimental studies and analysis of the electron cloud build-up and corresponding instability in accelerators with combined function magnets and for the development of an effective mitigation technique applied in the Fermilab's Recycler ring"
The APS-DPB Thesis Award recognizes doctoral thesis research of outstanding quality and achievement in beam physics and engineering. The annual award consists of $2,500 and a certificate to be presented at an awards ceremony at the Division of Physics of Beams Annual Meeting, and an additional allowance of up to $500 for travel to the meeting. The recipient will be invited to present their work as an invited talk in an appropriate session of the meeting.
Robert R. Wilson Prize for Achievement
The Robert R. Wilson Prize for Achievement recognizes and encourages outstanding achievement in the physics of particle accelerators.
Alexander Wu Chao
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
"for insightful, fundamental and broad-ranging contributions to accelerator physics, including polarization, beam-beam effects, nonlinear dynamics, and collective instabilities, for tireless community leadership and for inspiring and educating generations of accelerator physicists."
The prize consists of $7,500, an allowance for travel to the meeting at which the prize is awarded and a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient. It is presented annually.

Student poster prizes
The Student Poster Prize will be awarded to two students whose work, presented in the student poster session, is particularly admirable. Posters will be evaluated for the Student Poster Prize during the course of the student poster session.
More details will be made available soon.
