Uwe Bauer and Liz Rapoport were among 5 finalists for the Best Student Presentation Award at the 12th Joint MMM/Intermag Conference in Chicago last month. The grand prize went to Uwe Bauer. Please congratulate both of them for this honor; this is a very large conference, and the competition is intense (finalists are chosen based on their submission of an extended digest, a summary of the broad significance of the work and their contributions, and reference letter; winner is chosen after oral presentations at the conference). Both Uwe and Liz are members of the Beach group, and at the previous Intermag conference, Satoru Emori from the Beach group won this competition.
