euRobotics opens its Call for the 2018 Georges Giralt PhD Award.
The submission deadline is 31st December, 2017.
The aim of the "Georges Giralt Ph.D. Award" is to showcase PhD theses
defended during 2017 in European universities from all areas of robotics.
Outstanding theses with strong theoretical contributions, a focus on
professional applications or technology transfer, with a high degree of
multidisciplinarity, or showing how robotics technologies can be applied
to new domains, are eligible for the prize.
Submissions are done by sending an email to the George Giralt Award
phd.award AT eu-robotics.net,
- name of PhD student;
- name of PhD granting institution;
- title of PhD thesis;
- date of PhD defense;
- URL to a PDF version of the thesis;
- Email address and contact data of the PhD student.
Please, keep the message concise and to the point, avoiding attachments;
no supplementary information (letters of reference, publication lists,
CVs,...) is required.
The award consists in a plaque and the publication of the thesis by
Springer in the STAR series. It will be given to the winner(s) at the
occasion of the next European Robotics Forum, in Tampere, Finland, March
13-15, 2018 (www.erf2018.eu). The selection of the finalists will be
announced mid-to end-of-February 2018, and these finalists are expected
to give a 20 minutes presentation of their research at the Forum, since
part of the award evaluation will be done on the basis of that oral
presentation. No reimbursement is foreseen for the attendance.
The jury for the Georges Giralt Ph.D. Award consists of more than 10
members belonging to the academic members of euRobotics.
