This year's Nobel Laureates will be awarded their prizes by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden on Saturday, December 10.

The winners of the prizes for Physics, Chemistry, Medicine and Economics will be present at the Stockholm Concert Hall. 

This year's winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Bob Dylan, will not be attending the ceremony but he has sent a speech that will be read at the Nobel banquet, which takes place in Stockholm City Hall on Saturday evening.

The Nobel Peace Prize is handed out at a separate ceremony in Oslo, Norway.
