The Georges Giralt PhD Award in Robotics (GGA) is the most prestigious PhD award in the robotics area in Europe. The award winner gets the opportunity to publish her/his thesis as a volume in the Springer STAR series.
Excellent PhD theses that have been submitted and defended at a European university or research institution within the 2015 calendar year are eligible for the award. A selection committee consisting of 26 distinguished academic members of the European research community evaluates the submissions in two rounds and selects up to four finalists, who are invited to give a 20-minute presentation on their thesis at the European Robotics Forum in Ljubljana. The selection committee will make its final decision about the 2016 Georges Giralt PhD Award winner after the presentations.
The winner will be announced and the award given during the “Lunch Break with Awards” session on March 23.
