OPEN CALL - ECCOMAS Award for the two Best PhD Theses in 2017 on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering
The European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) is pleased to announce the fourteenth edition of the Award to distinguish young scientists who have recently completed a PhD thesis in the field of Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering.
The Meaning of the Award is to highlight outstanding achievements of two young persons at the start of their scientific careers.
The Content of the Award is an Award document, a sum of 2000 Euros plus the cost for the attendance of the Award Ceremony.
The Application: Every person who has presented a thesis within the ECCOMAS fields of interest and got it approved at a University or a Research Organization in Europe in 2017 qualifies for the Award and can submit an application.
An Open Call is launched for candidates that are wishing to submit their applications. The application must be sent to the President of the local/regional ECCOMAS Association to which the applicant is associated (a list of addresses is given on the ECCOMAS website www.eccomas.org). The closing date of this first phase (submission from candidates) is January 15, 2018. Exceptionally, the local/regional ECCOMAS Association may extend the deadline for this phase once the internal selection procedure is organized. Applicants must include a copy of the thesis and Curriculum Vitae. A 2 to 3 pages’ summary in English is required for theses written in other languages than English.
First Selection: Each national or regional ECCOMAS Association will select one candidate thesis according to an internally decided selection procedure. The local ECCOMAS Associations will send the selected thesis and the CV of the author (printed on paper), together with a short (one page) explanation why this thesis is outstanding, to the ECCOMAS Secretariat in Barcelona. If electronic versions of the thesis, the explanation and the CV are available, they will also be welcome. The documentation has to arrive at the Barcelona secretariat not later than March 8, 2018 (this deadline is sharp, applications received later will not enter in the selection procedure). All the candidates selected as finalists of each Association will receive a diploma issued by ECCOMAS.
Award Decision: The ECCOMAS PhD Award Committee will select two awardees and communicate the decision by April 9, 2018.
Award Presentation: The Awards will be handed over at the Eighth ECCOMAS PhD Olympiads organized in the framework of the ECCM-ECFD 2018 International Conference, which will take place on June 11-15, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. All the candidates selected as finalists are invited to participate at the Olympiads and their fees for attending the ECCM-ECFD 2018 International Conference are waived.
