Brouwer Award

Each year since 1976 the DDA has honored the achievements of a major contributor to the field of dynamical astronomy, recognizing the awardee with an honorarium, a certificate, and presentation of an award lecture. Past recipients include Lia Athanassoula, Jerry Sellwood, Joe Burns, Doug Lin, and Sylvio Ferraz Mello.

The Brouwer Award was established to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of Dynamical Astronomy, including celestial mechanics, solar system dynamics, planetary and exo-planetary dynamics, astrometry, geophysics, stellar systems, galactic and extra galactic dynamics. The Selection Committee seeks nominees of any gender, nationality, occupation, field of interest, and scientific and technical contributions. Candidates must have obtained a PhD. degree at least 10 years prior to the date of nomination. The main criteria, which are not necessarily weighted equally, are (a) excellence in scientific research; (b) impact and influence in the field; (c) excellence in teaching and training of students; (d) outstanding advancement and other support of the field through administration, public service or engineering achievement.
