The Scientific Advisory Committee of EPJ is delighted to welcome Dr. Zsolt Fülöp, as the new representative for the Roland Eötvös Physical Society (Hungary).
Zsolt Fülöp (1964) is a Hungarian Physicist working in the field of nuclear astrophysics. He started his carrier and is still working at the Institute for Nuclear Physics (ATOMKI), a laboratory in Hungary providing several low energy particle accelerators to be used for interdisciplinary studies.
He organized several conferences, among them the 'Nuclei in the Cosmos' in 2014, the largest nuclear astrophysics event and in 2017 the Science on Stage, a pan-European event for science teachers.
Zsolt Fülöp is a former Chair of the Nuclear Physics Division of the European Physical Society (EPS). He is a Member of Academia Europaea and Chair of the National Research Infrastructure Committee of Hungary. Further information about his publications can be found here.

Guest Editors: Alexandre Kabla, Benoît Ladoux & Jean-Marc Di Meglio
The rich variety of subjects - epithelia submitted to different mechanical, geometrical or topological constraints, collective and cellular dynamics in cell clusters and organoids, embryology, theory of active motions mediated by topological defects, new methods of analysis – reflects the current intense activity of the biophysics community in this domain. The guest editors hope that these contributions will build a bridge between these fundamental approaches and will present the impact of physical principles on the regulation of biological tissues.

The prestigious Abraham Pais Prize for History of Physics, awarded each year by the American Physical Society, recognizes outstanding scholarly achievements in the history of physics. Professor Jürgen Renn, Editor of EPJH: Historical Perspectives on Contemporary Physics and Archive for History of Exact Sciences receives the 2023 Abraham Pais Prize for History of Physics "for contributions to the historiography of modern and early modern science, in particular, studies of Albert Einstein; and for contributing scholarship and taking public stances that directly raise the social relevance of science historiography."
