The Jury would like to issue a call for nominations for the 2019 Hanneke Janssen Memorial Prize, which is awarded annually for the best work in History and/or Philosophy of Modern Physics, done by a student as a requirement for a Masters Thesis. The prize carries a 2000 euro award. Nominations for this Prize need to be submitted by a supervisor of the nominee before November 1, 2019. I would also like to issue a special encouragement for the nomination of candidates from underrepresented groups.
