EAPLS PhD Award 2013: Call for Nominations
Since a few years, the European Association for Programming Languages and
Systems has established a Best Dissertation Award in the international research
area of programming languages and systems. The award will go to the PhD student
who in the previous period has made the most original and influential
contribution to the area. The purpose of the award is to draw attention to
excellent work, to help the career of the student in question, and to promote
the research field as a whole.
Eligible for the award are those who successfully defended their PhD
* at an academic institution in Europe
* in the field of Programming Languages and Systems
* in the period from 1 November 2012 - 1 November 2013
Candidates for the award must be nominated by their supervisor.
Nominating a candidate consists of submitting the thesis to
nomination must be accompanied by (a zip file containing)
* a letter from the supervisor describing why the thesis should be
considered for the award;
* a report from an independent researcher who has acted as examiner
of the thesis at its defense.
The theses will be evaluated with respect to originality, influence,
relevance to the field and (to a lesser degree) quality of writing.
The nominations will be evaluated and compared by an international
committee of experts from across Europe. The procedure to be
followed is analogous to the review phase of a conference. The
justification by the supervisor and the external report will play
an important role in the evaluation.
Members of the expert committee are barred from nominating their
own PhD students for the award.
The award consists of a certificate announcing the winner to have
received the EAPLS PhD award 2013. The supervisor will receive a
copy of this certificate. If possible, the certificate will be
handed out ceremonially at a suitable occasion, as for instance
the ETAPS conference.
Apart from the winner, no further ranking of nominees will be
published. The decision of the expert committee is final and
binding, and will not be subject to discussion.
