GWIC THESIS PRIZE

Each year, members of the international gravitational wave community are invited to nominate students who have performed notable research on any aspect of gravitational waves science. A committee selected from the gravitational wave community will evaluate the nominations and select the winner.

This is the fourth year that a single committee selects the winners of the two thesis prizes. Two winners will be selected, with the GWIC Thesis Prize emphasizing the impact of the research on the field of gravitational wave science, while the Braccini Thesis Prize will be awarded with an emphasis on innovation. The first award covered the period from 1 July to 30 June Both prizes are awarded on a calendar year basis. The selection committee makes the final determinations about eligibility. The two Prizes are awarded alternately at the Amaldi Conferences on Gravitational Waves in odd numbered years and another appropriate conference in even numbered years. A strictly limited number of theses are accepted into the series, based on the recommendations of supervisors from the world’s top universities and research institutes.

Theses are judged on 1 originality and creativity of the research, 2 importance to the field of gravitational waves and gravitational wave detection, broadly interpreted, and 3 clarity of presentation in the thesis.
