SigmaPhi Awards

During the conference, six works selected out of all the oral and poster presentations have been awarded.

The prizes have been supported by the following institutions:
- European Physical Society (EPS).
- National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), Italy.
- Greek National Centre for Scientific Research DEMOKRITOS financed by Greek Telecom (OTE).
- Chaos, Solitons and Fractals journal (Elsevier).
- SigmaPhi Conference.


The selection committee was composed by V. Constandoudis and A.M. Scarfone
Any awarded scientists have been granted 500 Euro each. Additionally, the registration fee will be waived to the six winners for participating in the next edition of the SigmaPhi Conference, SigmaPhi2021.
The announcement of the winners and awarding ceremony took place on Friday July 14th.
