Three of the four experiment co-spokespersons accepted the award on behalf of the collaborations at the biannual EPS conference. A number of CDF and DZero physicists were in attendance.

EPS awards the prize every two years to one or more persons or to collaborations for an outstanding contribution to high-energy and particle physics in an experimental, theoretical or technological area.
