Call for Nominations for the 2023 AIRAPT Jamieson Award

A Jamieson Award of 2023 for an outstanding achievement in the field of high pressure research by a young scientist shall be awarded by the Association at the joint AIRAPT/EHPRG Conference in Edinburgh, UK, July 23-28, 2023. The recipient will be invited to give an in-person talk at this Conference.

John Calhoun Jamieson (1924-1983) was Professor of Geophysics at the University of Chicago. Most of his research used static high pressures. However, he also performed shock experiments at Los Alamos and SRI International.

A Statement to AIRAPT Members Regarding the Current Protests in Iran

Iranian women are leading a cultural renaissance with massive support from the university students with the rallying cry "Woman, Life, Freedom". University campuses have been at the center of the waves of protest sweeping through Iran, and the academic community of Iran has suffered enormous damage. An increasing number of Iranian students and faculty, who are among the brightest minds of Iran, have been dismissed or suspended and their academic careers damaged. University campuses have a universal standing as places for fostering the free exchange of ideas, including peaceful protests.

AIRAPT new logo

AIRAPT has a new logo!

The logo was selected by the AIRAPT Executive Committee among a large number of proposals.

The selected logo was designed by Dr. Philip Dalladay-Simpson (HPSTAR, China), to whom the AIRAPT is deeply indebted for his important contribution. Thanks are also due to all participants in the call, whose artistic and creative designs made the competition tight.

Historical AIRAPT documents (1966-1982)

In April 2016, the AIRAPT Executive Committee was contacted by M. François-Yves JULIEN, archivist of the Academie François Bourdon (AFB).

In 2003, the Institut Universitaire de Technologie Le Creusot had asked the AFB to take care of a large amount of AIRAPT documents, and M. Julien needed clarification on their status.

The Executive Committee proposed (*) to deposit these documents at AFB for an indefinite period of time. The AFB will take care of this material, index it and make an inventory.
