The EOS Prize is awarded annually for the best paper published in the open access online journal of the EOS (JEOS:RP) https://jeos.edpsciences.org/
The Prize is awarded in-person during the EOS Annual Meeting, EOSAM. It consists of a diploma and of an invitation to present a plenary lecture, the JEOS-RP Highlight, during this same meeting. This lecture should be closely related to the research covered by the paper with the same list of authors. The registration fees for the author presenting the lecture are waived.
The best paper is selected by the EOS Prize Committee: the two JEOS-RP Chief Editors and the EOS Past President.
The history of the EOS Prize
Thanks to Pierre Zaleski, the former administrator of Europtica Services IC (ESIC), EOS has received a donation from the capital remaining after the dissolution of ESIC. According to the wishes expressed by ESIC, this donation will be managed in such a way as to generate revenue to be used for an EOS prize to promote OPTICS in the widest form in Europe.
EOS PRIZE WINNERS
EOS PRIZE 2022
In 2022, the EOS Prize was awarded to the paper titled “Round robin comparison study on the form measurement of optical freeform surfaces."
