Since 1977, the Ioannes Marcus Marci Spectroscopic Society has been awarding the Ioannes Marcus Marci of Kronland Medal to distinguished individuals in the field of spectroscopy. Named after the renowned Czech scientist, physician, and academic dignitary of Charles University, this medal was first presented on the occasion of the XX Colloquium Spectroscopicum Internationale in Prague. It is awarded in recognition of local and foreign scientists for their outstanding work and contributions in any of the spectroscopic fields. In the international context, this medal is of extraordinary significance and is considered an event worthy of, among other things, reports in renowned scientific journals. Each year, a rather limited number of the medals are awarded and the nominees are selected following a very critical evaluation. (see Recipients of the Ioannes Marcus Marci Medal).

   The Nicolaus Konkoly-Thege Medal is awarded by the Slovak Spectroscopic Society for significant contributions to the development of spectroscopy in Slovakia and throughout the world. It was first awarded in 2010 and bears the name of the extraordinary scholar and prominent, internationally recognized scientist, physicist, and astronomer, Dr. Mikuláš Konkoly-Thege. Based on his scientific merits, Dr. Konkoly-Thege became a member of several foreign scientific organizations and a recipient of various awards. However, his most significant achievements included the founding of the Hurbanovo Observatory, an astrophysical observatory still in operation today (see Recipients of the Nicolaus Konkoly-Thege Medal).
