  1. HYDROMAG PRIZE
    —————————–
    (from Alban Potherat, Coventry, UK )

    The HYDROMAG association for Hydromagnetic phenomena and its applications (http://www.hydromag.eu) is pleased to announce the first Hydromag Best Poster Prize.

    The prize consists of a personal gratification of 500€, awarded for the best poster presented at the PAMIR conference (Cagliari, 20-24 June 2016). The competition was open to all researchers under 35 years of age, who are first author of a poster accepted for display during the conference. The winner was decided based on the originality, significance and rigour of the work presented. The decision was made by the members of the HYDROMAG committee present at the PAMIR conference.

    This edition of the prize was generously funded by Coventry University (UK) and was awarded to Ms Franziska Karnbach (Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research, Dresden, Germany) for her poster “Influence of Magnetic Fields on the Behavior of Single Hydrogen Bubbles Generated via Water Electrolysis“.

    We would like to make Hydromag Prize a tradition, presented at a key MHD-related conferences in the future.

    Congratulations Franziska!
    The HYDROMAG Committee
