A committee representing the international gravitational wave community evaluates the nominations and selects the winner. The selection committee was instructed to select the two best theses based 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.

For further information, visit the GWIC web page on the prize. All submissions will be acknowledged; if an acknowledgement is not received shortly after the deadline, please contact the GWIC Secretary gwic-exsec[AT]gravity.

Nominated theses may be in any language. He was a well liked and respected member of the international community.

GWIC – The Gravitational Wave International Committee

Inthe thesis prize was adopted by GWIC, renamed, converted to an annual prize, and opened to the broader community. The first award covered rhesis period from 1 July to 30 June Past winners whose theses have been published by Springer include: Each year, members of the international gravitational wave community are invited to nominate students who have performed notable research on any prizw of gravitational waves science.

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. There is a common thdsis for nominations, and all theses submitted will be considered for both awards by a joint selection committee.

Both prizes recognize outstanding PhD theses in the general area of gravitational waves.

Stefano Braccini thesis prize

GWIC is privileged wgic nominate both thesis prize winners for publication in the book series Springer Theses. Theses will be judged on 1 originality and creativity of the research, 2 importance to the field prze gravitational waves and gravitational wave detection, broadly interpreted, and 3 clarity of presentation.

The selection committee will make all determinations about eligibility. It is expected that many of the nominations will come from the member projects of GWIC, but this is not a requirement.

All theses will be considered for both awards. The two Prizes thess awarded alternately at the Amaldi Conferences on Gravitational Waves in odd numbered years and another appropriate conference in even numbered years. His thesis describes a beautiful experiment demonstrating frequency-dependent squeezed states suitable for Advanced LIGO.
