HENRIETTE ALIMEN MEDAL

In 2020, the AFEQ-CNF INQUA will reward for the first time a francophone professional whose career has been devoted to the study of Quaternary whatever the discipline concerned. Dedicated to be awarded every two years, this distinction honors Henriette Alimen (1900-1996), a French geologist known for her many works on the Quaternary of the Pyrenees and Africa, former president of the Société Géologique de France and founder of the Laboratory of Quaternary Geology of Marseille-Luminy.

 
Each nomination must be submitted by two members of the AFEQ-CNF INQUA, at least one of whom does not belong to the same laboratory as the person proposed. The assessment of the files is entrusted to the Association Council (CA), assisted if necessary by external stakeholders. The final decision is voted on by the CA. The selection criteria include the candidate’s national and international scientific outreach and the services provided to AFEQ-CNF INQUA or other international associations working for the Quaternary.

The first Henriette Alimen medal will be awarded in February 2020 at the Quaternaire Q12 symposium in Paris by the President of AFEQ-CNF INQUA and the laureate will give a presentation of his work on this occasion.

Filing of nominations before September 30, 2019
The file includes a letter of justification signed by the two members of the AFEQ-CNF INQUA who sponsor the candidate, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and, possibly, letters of support from Quaternary specialists, members or not of the AFEQ-CNF INQUA. The file must not exceed 5 pages.

It should be sent in digital format (pdf) to Julie Dabkowski, Secretary of the AFEQ-CNF INQUA (julie.dabkowski@gmail.com).
