The Pauling Poster Prize was established by the ACA and is supported by member contributions, to honor Linus Pauling. Pauling was one of the pioneers in American structural research and was a very supportive member of the ACA for many years. At each annual meeting the (7) best graduate or undergraduate poster presentations receive Pauling awards. Each award consists of $250, a complimentary banquet ticket, and a copy of a Linus Pauling book.

 

ACA Pauling Poster Prizes:  Linus Pauling was one of the pioneers in American structural research and was very supportive member of the ACA for many years.  Up to three prizes awarded annually:

 

Herman R. Branson Pauling Poster Prize:  recognizes the contributions of Herman Russell Branson, one of the first African American physicists to make crystallography the focus of his research.

 

Muttaiya Sundaralingam Pauling Poster Prize: recognizes the ground-breaking crystallographic research on the stereochemistry of nucleotides and nucleic acids done by Muttaiya Sundaralingam and his colleagues.

 

Loius Delbaere Pauling Poser Prize:  sponsored by the Canadian Division of the ACA and the Canadian National Committee of the IUCr, will be given to the highest ranked graduate or undergraduate poster from a Canadian laboratory. 

 

IUCr Pauling Poster Prize:  sponsored by the International Union of Crystallography, to be given to a ranked graduate or undergraduate poster. The Award is complimentary online access to all IUCr journals for one year or a complimentary volume of International Tables or other IUCr publication.

Journal on Structural Dynamics Poster Prize  The prize of $250 is given for excellence in research on structural determination and dynamics of systems, enabled by the emerging new instruments (e.g. XFELs, electron sources, etc.) and new experimental and theoretical methodologies and is open to students (graduate and undergraduate) and post-docs. The ACA Journal on Structural Dynamics sponsors this new prize.

 

RCSB Protein Data Bank Poster Prize  This prize recognizes a student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation involving macromolecular crystallography. The award will be two educational books that will be mailed to the winner after the meeting. An announcement will appear on the RCSB PDB website and newsletter. For more information, see http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/static.do?p=general_information/about_pdb/poster_prize.html.

 

Journal of Chemical Crystallography Poster Prize  The best student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation in the area of chemical crystallography or small molecule structure determination and analysis is sponsored by Springer's Journal of Chemical Crystallography. The winner will receive their personal choice of books from Springer's extensive portfolio of titles.

 

CrystEngComm Poster Prize  CrystEngComm (published by the Royal Society of Chemistry) is very pleased to sponsor a prize to be awarded to the best student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation in the area of crystal engineering /supramolecular chemistry. The winner will receive an RSC book voucher and an announcement will be posted on the CrystEngComm website (http://www.rsc.org/Publishing/Journals/CE/about.asp) shortly after the conclusion of the ACA meeting.  Please indicate your wish to be considered for this prize with your abstract submission.

 

Oxford Cryosystems Low Temperature Poster Prize  This prize is open to all participants and is awarded to the best poster describing work in low temperature crystallography. The winner will receive a cash prize donated by Oxford Cryosystems, Inc. and be announced at the banquet on Wednesday. 

 

Taylor & Francis Biomolecular Crystallography Poster Prize  This prize is open to all participants and is awarded to the best poster describing a successful application of a non-routine or computationally challenging structure solution and refinement technique in biomolecular crystallography. The winner will receive Bernhard Rupp's book Biomolecular Crystallography donated by the Taylor & Francis Group and will be announced at the banquet on Wednesday.

 

MiTeGen-Society of Physics Students Undergraduate Poster Prize This prize was established to encourage young undergraduate researchers in the field of crystallography and recognizes the best undergraduate poster presentation. The winner will receive a $250 cash prize sponsored by the Society of Physics Students and MiTegen. All student posters will be automatically be eligible.
