The nomination package should include

‚ÄĘ a nomination letter (not exceed 2 single-spaced pages of A4 format)
‚ÄĘ a one sentence citation (citation should be 200 characters or less including space)
‚ÄĘ supporting letters (each letter should not exceed 2 single-spaced pages of A4 format) and be from scientists who co-operated with the nominee or are acquainted with the nominee's works through publications and their citations. At least 2 letters should be from outside the nominee's own organization
‚ÄĘ the nominee's CV (not exceed 3 single-spaced pages of A4 format) with an emphasis on their scientific work in oceanography and, if possible, their contribution to international scientific cooperation.
‚ÄĘ a list (not exceed 2 single-spaced pages of A4 format) of the most important published scientific works.


Call for nominations

The Secretary General called for nominations for the 2019 award on 1 October, 2018 (see http://iapso.iugg.org/iapso-open-letters-archive-art.html). The nomination package should be submitted to the IAPSO Secretary General at iapso.sg@gmail.com and in copy to stefania.sparnocchia@ts.ismar.cnr.it, by the extended deadline of 31 January, 2019.
