Dear colleagues,

We are proud to announce that the International 
Commission for Optics has awarded the ICO Prize 
2007 to Susana Marcos (Institute of Optics, CSIC, 
Spain). It is the first time that this prestigeous 
prize is awarded to a vision scientist.

The ICO Prize was established in 1982 and is 
given each year to an individual who has made a 
noteworthy contribution to optics, before he or she has reached the age of 40.

The award proposal was unanimously approved by an 
ICO Bureau meeting held in Accra (Ghana) last November.
The citation reads: "The ICO Prize for the year 
2007 is given to Prof. Susana Marcos in 
recognition of her outstanding contributions in 
the areas of visual optics and biophotonics.

The Prize includes the Ernst Abbe Medal, donated 
by Carl Zeiss Foundation. Prof. Marcos will deliver an invited plenary
lecture at ICO-21 Triennial Congress of the 
International Commission for Optics (Sydney, 
Australia, July 7-10, 2008) where the award ceremony will also take place.

The information appeared in the ICO Newsletter, January 2008 issue is electrocnically available at:

With best regards.

On behalf of the International Commission for Optics
