The 2016 Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) Congress was held June 12 - 17 in Ottawa, Ontario. Awards for outstanding research were presented at the Recognition Gala on June 16.

Dr. Roger Melko officially received the 2016 Herzberg Medal for early-career achievement, which was originally announced in April.

The 2016 CAP-CRM Prize in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics was awarded to adjunct faculty Freddy Cachazo of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.

The 2016 Boris P. Stoicheff Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Chris Pugh, a PhD student working with Thomas Jennewein

The Stoicheff Scholarship is awarded to a graduate student who has demonstrated both research excellence and significant service to the optics or physics community.

University of Waterloo had an excellent showing in the CAP student paper competitions:

  • 1st place in the Best Poster Presentation, division of Theoretical Physics was awarded to Keith Ng, a PhD student working with Professor Robert Mann
  • 1st place in the Best Paper Presentation, division of Theoretical Physics was won by Robie Hennigar, a PhD student working with Professor Robert Mann.
    Robie also received Honourable Mention in the Overall Best Paper competition.
  • 2nd place in the Best Paper Presentation, division of Theoretical Physics went to Alexander Smith, a PhD student working with Professor Robert Mann
  • 2nd place in the Best Paper Presentation, division of Physics in Medicine and Biology, was awarded to Qinrong Zhang, a PhD student working with Dr. Qing-Bin Lu

Congratulations to all. These honours for your excellent research are certainly deserved.
