On May 23, the 2019 Asian Committee for Future Accelerators and Organizing Committee of the International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC 2019) honored Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev with the Nishikawa Tetsuji Prize. He was presented with a plaque at the conference.
Shiltsev received the prize “for his original work on electron lenses in synchrotron colliders, his outstanding contribution to the construction and operation of high-energy, high-luminosity hadron colliders and for his tireless leadership in the accelerator community.”
The Nishikawa Prize is given for a recent, significant, original contributions to the accelerator field, and is named after the first director-general of KEK – Japan’s High Energy Accelerator Research Organization.
