Chinese Physical Society 2016-2017 Physics Awards

Twelve physicists were the recipients of eight awards by the Chinese Physical Society (CPS), given during the Fall Meeting of CPS in September 2017. Held in Chengdu, the Fall Meeting was the largest gathering of physicists of CPS, and totaled more than 2500 participants this year. These awards are conferred every two years, and are the top physics awards given by the Chinese Physical Society. Each award carries a medal and award money. The following table lists the recipients, their affiliation and the award that they received.
