Mr. Marko Jaric is one of the most brilliant minds of Serbian Physics. He lived and worked in the USA.

Professors Ilija Savic and Milan Bozic announced this year's winner, Mr. Leonard Golubovic, professor on the University of West Virginia, USA. Mr. Golubovic got the prize for his research from the field of interphase dynamics in the context of liquid crystals and exploring the statistically-physical ensembles of fluctuating accidental surfaces. He thereafter held a lecture in which he in a popular way helped the attendants envisage the core of the interesting and relevant topic he researches.
The ceremony ended with a cocktail in the M&M Club on the University of Philology.
