Wanda Andreoni is Emeritus professor of physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL). She has been involved in computational materials science since the early days of her research activity, in both academic and industrial institutions, covering also teaching, organizational and research managing positions. Regarding editorial work, she was co-editor of Europhysics Letters (1990-1993) and Editor of "The Chemical Physics of Fullerenes 10 (and 5) Years Later," NATO ASI Series E: Applied Sciences, Vol. 316 (Kluwer, 1996), and of “The Physics of Fullerene-Based and Fullerene-Related Materials”, Series on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials with Low Dimensional Structures.
Sidney Yip served on the faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1965, becoming emeritus in 2009. His early research was in theoretical studies of particle and fluid transport. He has been broadly involved in atomistic modeling and simulation of materials for more than four decades. Working with a team of 17 subject editors, he edited the Handbook of Materials Modeling, Springer, 2005. He has coauthored the monographs Foundations of Neutron Transport Theory (1967), Neutron Molecular Spectroscopy (1968), Molecular Hydrodynamics (1980), and co-edited Spectroscopy in Biology and Chemistry, Neutron, X-Ray, Laser (1974), and Materials Interfaces – Atomic-Level Structure and Properties (1992). Recently he completed the text, Nuclear Radiation Interactions (2014).
