Jack Simons at ACS banquet

At the 2022 PHYS Awards banquet in Chicago, the Executive Committee voted to rename the longstanding senior theory award to honor Jack Simons. It is now called the Jack Simons Award in Theoretical Physical Chemistry.

The recipient of this award will present their research in the fall ACS PHYS symposia, followed by being honored at the annual ACS reception, and a $5,000 honorarium. The recipient will also be asked to present a plenary lecture at the next Telluride School on Theoretical Chemistry.
