To receive the award, Ceder was invited to be an honored presenter at the William Hume-Rothery Memorial Symposium, which was held in conjunction with the TMS 2023 Annual Meeting. At the symposium, he gave a lecture titled “Ab Initio Thermodynamics and Kinetics from Alloys to Complex Oxides.” He was awarded this honor for his “seminal contributions to theory and predictive computational methods for complex multicomponent alloys and ceramic solid solutions, and pioneering advances for ab-initio materials design.”
