Second NIC Excellence Project 2016

Twice a year, the NIC Peer Review Board honours outstanding simulation projects with the NIC Excellence Project award. We are pleased to announce that the latest award is being given to Dr. Karl Jansen (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron – DESY Zeuthen) for his project "Hadronic contributions to electroweak observables". The project is concerned with deviations from the classical value of the magnetic moment of the spin 1/2 muon, a lepton which is very similar to the electron but about 200 times heavier. It is the second project to have received the award this year. For more details and previous award winners, see
