The DPC thesis award is distributed annually to a talented young scientist from a Swiss University.



The selection will be based on a single publication (completed or under preparation) drawn from the student's PhD thesis which has been published, or accepted for publication, during the last three years. The 4 to 5 best candidates will then be invited to give a 20 minute talk about their thesis at the next PolyColl meeting. The winner will be selected by the board members of the division. The award will be distributed at the end of the meeting.

Nominations are accepted from the thesis supervisor.

Please send your nomination including the paper and the complete PhD thesis (only the electronic forms) by e-mail to the president of the Division: Dr. Bettina Steinmann, , until February 28, 2013.
