On June 21st, Roger Guimerà was awarded the inaugural Erdos-Renyi Prize in Network Science. The award consists of a $3,000 cash prize, a diploma, and a plenary lecture at the NetSci2012 meeting, and is sponsored by the Network Science Society, whose primary mission is to support the activity of outstanding young researchers in the area of network science.

The Prize is awarded to a selected young scientist (under 40 years old) for their achievements in research activities in the area of network science, broadly construed. While the achievements can be both theoretical and experimental, the prize is aimed at emphasizing outstanding contributions relevant to the interdisciplinary progress of network science.
