Erik Akkermans joins the EPJ Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)

Eric Akkermans

The SAC is very pleased to welcome Eric Akkermans as a new representative of the Israel Physical Society. Eric Akkermans is a professor at the physics department at Technion. He is working on condensed matter physics and more particularly on subjects that sit at the crossroad between quantum physics, equilibrium and out of equilibrium physics, quantum field theory, cold atomic gases and mesoscopic physics. The theoretical activity of the research group of E. Akkermans is systematically related to experimental works either triggering new experiments or trying to explain existing results.

Eduard Boos

The Scientific Advisory Committee of EPJ is delighted to welcome Professor Eduard Boos as the new representative for the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Eduard Boos is Professor at Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) and head of high energy experimental physics department in the D.V. Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics of MSU.

He is an active member of CMS collaboration at CERN LHC http://www.sinp.msu.ru/en/strukted/1655

His expertise will be highly appreciated for the review of and advice on the publishing strategy of EPJ. His membership of the committee will support the visibility of EPJ in his community.

EPJ SAC meeting in 2020

The incoming Chair for the year 2020 of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) of EPJ, Jef Ongena, President of the Belgian Physical Society, will host the annual SAC meeting in April 2020, in Brussels. The venue of the meeting is the Club Prince Albert in Brussels.

The SAC, with its representatives from physical societies in Europe, advises the Steering Committee in all matters that concern EPJ such as the scientific policy and conduct to ethical standards, nomination of new Editors-in-Chief, publishing strategies and the visibility of EPJ in the physics community. The Chair of the SAC rotates each year among its members. The close proximity of EPJ to physicists and the physical societies undoubtedly contributes to its good reputation, while the direct involvement of physical societies remains an absolute priority to EPJ.
