One of the authors, possibly the speaker, must be member of the Italian Physical Society.


A special commission will select from each section a certain number of contributions judged particularly valuable on the basis of their content and/or exposition.

For the winners (about 30% of the total) there will be prizes and the publication of their article in a special issue of Il Nuovo Cimento, with an online publication in "open access".

The award ceremony will take place during the opening ceremony of the 2023 SIF National Congress. Only those registered to the Congress will have the opportunity to participate in the selection.
