The EPS High Energy Physics Division announced the winners of its 2013 prizes, which will be awarded at the Europhysics Conference on High-Energy Physics in(EPS-HEP 2013, http://eps-hep2013.eu/), Stockholm (Sweden) 18−24 July 2013.
The 2013 Giuseppe and Vanna Cocconi Prize, for an outstanding contribution to Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology in the past 15 years, is awarded to Arthur B. McDonald and Yoichiro Suzuki "for their outstanding contributions to the solution of the solar neutrino puzzle by measuring the flux of all neutrino flavors from the Sun with the Super-Kamiokande and SNO experiments".

(Vancouver, BC) --- Graduate students around the world who are pursuing particle physics now have a new destination for expanding their knowledge and sharpening their skills: Canada. This summer, the Tri-Institute Summer School on Elementary Particles (TRISEP) will be inaugurated with a cohort of students travelling to Vancouver to master the pioneering topics of collider physics, neutrino physics, dark matter, Monte-Carlo simulation, and physics beyond the Standard Model.
