From the editors

We are pleased to announce that this year’s volume of Simiolus is the first to feature an article that was awarded the Bader Prize, and want to express our heartfelt thanks to Alfred and Isabel Bader for making this possible. We also wish to thank all the authors who sent us their manuscripts to compete for the award, and are very pleased to congratulate Ed Wouk from London with winning it. We are looking forward to receiving the manuscripts for the next Bader Prize before 15 June 2013, and promise to publish the winning contribution in Simiolus 37.
