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, not more than (7) best graduate
or undergraduate poster presentations receive Pauling awards.Some of the awards
consist of $250, a complimentary banquet ticket, and a copy of a Linus Pauling
book. Each prize is in honor of:
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 or undergraduate, and post-docs.The ACA Journal on Structural Dynamics sponsors this 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: www.rcsb.org/pdb
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 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 (/www.rsc.org/Publishing/Journals/CE/about.asp).
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.
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.
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, as well as a gift
certificate for MiTeGen products. All undergraduate student posters will be automatically be eligible.
