Advances in Magnetism Award

AIP Advances is sponsoring the Advances in Magnetism Award at the 2022 Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) Conference, and it will be awarded to the best paper submitted as part of the 2020 MMM conference (held virtually).

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the award presented at the 2023 MMM Conference the candidate must have a 2022 MMM conference paper accepted for publication in AIP Advances.

Selection Process

An Award Selection Committee will judge papers nominated by the Publication Editors handling manuscripts for a current MMM conference. The award will be given to the first author of the winning paper, and the winner will be notified of their award via email.


The Award will be a 3500 USD cash prize and a 2500 USD travel allowance for the next in-person MMM conference. The winning paper and finalist papers will be promoted to researchers in the magnetism community.


Email for questions about eligibility, the selection process, or the award.
