Best Paper Award

This award is open everybody who is or has been a Ph.D. student in the Doctoral School Mathematics and Scientific Computing. All papers completed while being a student can be submitted. Currently we are giving two awards per year. The submission deadline is around the beginning of the winter term; the precise date is announced via the doctoral school mailing lists.
