Outstanding paper award

The Executive Board of the European Microscopy Society (EMS) decided to instigate an annual EMS "Outstanding Paper Award". The award will go to papers containing original work in the field of microscopy which will be judged on scientific merit, technical and general quality, expected impact, originality and relevance to microscopy. Each year it is intended that one paper will be chosen in each of the categories of (i) Instrumentation and Technique Development, (ii) Materials Sciences and (iii) Life Sciences. The prize consists of 1000 (one thousand) euro plus a plaque for the first author (per awarded paper) in each category and printed awards for all authors.
