Thesis Award

The purpose of this award is to recognize students who write seminal doctoral and master's theses in the field of scientific computing with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity and high performance computing.


Thesis Award 2021 - call open until 2021-07-30

We are glad to announce the call for submissions for the Thesis Award 2021 of the Research Area Scientific Computing, which is open as of now - till July 27, 2021!

The Research Area Scientific Computing awards a prize for an excellent master’s thesis and a PhD thesis in the field of Scientific Computing with a focus on High Performance Computing, and preferably with a highly interdisciplinary orientation. The award goes to a

  • master's thesis (€ 500)
  • doctoral thesis (€ 1000)

which was finished in the year 2020 (key date: day of the defensio) at the University of Innsbruck and is relevant for the Research Area Scientific Computing (e.g. in terms of Computational Engineering, Computer Science or High Performance Computing). Applications (an informal letter of application, a pdf of the original thesis, a pdf of the diploma) have to be submitted till July 30, 2021, in electronic form to scientific-computing@uibk.ac.at
