Royal Society of Canada (RSC) Michael P. Païdoussis Medal
The medal is awarded for or recognition of an individual who has made outstanding contributions to research, education and leadership in applied mechanics. Solid continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction are all included.
Note: the nomination process for this medal differs from the other RSC Medals.
Nominees from any country will be considered. Each candidate will be proposed by a nominator with a nomination letter (maximum three pages) together with three reference letters (maximum two pages each). The nominator must be a member of a national (of any country) or international academy, or a member of a national committee for IUTAM, while there are no restrictions for the reference letters. In addition to the nomination letter and reference letters, the nomination package must include an updated CV (maximum five pages), a complete publication list (no page limit) and the list of candidate’s best ten publications related to applied mechanics.
The three categories of research, education and leadership (including service to the scientific community, e.g. through professional organizations, conference organization and journal editorship) will have equal weight in the selection process and are to be clearly and explicitly addressed in the nomination materials.
A medal and cash award of $1,000 is offered in recognition of the candidate’s outstanding contribution in applied mechanics.
