The following awards will be presented during the Opening  session of the ICRC 2005:
 
Shakti P. Duggal Award : The Shakti P. Duggal award was established in 1983 to recognize the outstanding work by a young scientist in the field of cosmic ray physics. The award consists of a prize of US $ 1200 and the winner is invited to visit the Bartol Research Institute at the University of Delaware to present a colloquium at some time during the following year. The intent of this award is to recognize and inspire young cosmic ray scientists at an early age of their careers. The recipient will not have attained the age of 36 on January 1, 2005. Subject to this age limitation, any person from anywhere in the world who has contributed significantly to the field of cosmic ray physics including astro-particle physics is eligible for consideration. The selection of the prize winner will be made by an International Committee.
                                                                               
Nominations of potential recipients are now being  solicited. Nominators are requested to send to the committee secretariat at the Bartol Research Institute their nominee's curriculum vitae and publication
list, a supporting letter, and, if possible, copies of one or two of the candidate's most significant publications. The sponsor may also wish to ask one or two co-sponsors to send letters supporting  the
nomination. Nominations should be sent, to reach the following address, not later than 15 February 2005:   Duggal Award Committee,  Bartol  Research  Institute, University of Delaware, Newark,       DE 19716, U.S.A. Self-nomination will not be considered.

Nominations are closed.

O'Ceallaigh Medal :  The O'Ceallaigh Medal was established by the estate of late Prof. Cormac O'Ceallaigh and the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies to honour 'outstanding contributions to cosmic ray physics' and is awarded by the Commission (C4) on Cosmic Rays of the IUPAP. The Commission wishes to use this award to recognize significant contributions to the field of cosmic ray physics over an extended career.
                                                                               
Nominations of suitable recipients of the Medal, together with supporting information, should be sent (email preferred) by 15 February 2005 to the Chair of the Awards Subcommittee of the Commission at the following address: Prof. J. F. Valdes-Galicia, Instituto de Geofisica, UNAM Circuito Exterior,

Yodh Prize :  The Yodh Prize was established in 1998 to recognize a scientist whose research career has made substantial contribution to the understanding in the field of cosmic rays. The research should have had a major impact in the field. There is no age restriction. The prize was endowed by Gaurang and Kanwal Yodh to the University of California Irvine Foundation. The award consists of a prize of US $ 2000. The winner will be invited to visit the University of Claifornia, Irvine, to present a colloquium to the faculty and students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at some time during the following year. The awardee will be selected by an international committee of distinguished scientists in the field of cosmic rays and astro-particle physics.

Nominations should be sent to reach the following address by 15 February 2005: Prof. Myron Bander, Secretary of the Yodh Prize Committee, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of California, Irvine, CA 92697-4575, U.S.A. Self-nomination will not be considered.
