Announcements of the Nobel Prize and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences 2018

The prize-awarding institutions have decided the dates to announce the 2018 prize decisions. The registration for media will open in August.

Each year, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. 

As described in Alfred Nobel's will, the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry should be awarded to "the person who shall have made the most important discovery or invention within the field of physics" and "the person who shall have made the most important chemical discovery or improvement".

The Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel Prize in Literature, has decided that no such prize will be awarded this year. That does not impact the awarding of the 2018 Nobel Prizes in other prize categories. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is a separate and independent Nobel Prize awarding body. 

Information about all announcements of the prize-awarding institutions can be found here.

The press conferences will be broadcast, without any pre-registration, at www.kva.se and www.nobelprize.com.
