Call for submissions for the KWG PhD prize for the best presentation of PhD research in mathematics

Every year, the Dutch Royal Mathematical Society (KWG) invites several PhD candidates to present their research at the Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC). A jury of mathematicians from various fields chooses a winner who receives, besides the prestige attached to winning, a floating trophy and a monetary reward of 1000 euro.

This year the PhD prize competition is open to PhD candidates in mathematics from all
universities in the Netherlands, and the 2018 KWG Dutch Mathematical Congress will be held on April 3rd and 4th at the Koningshof in Veldhoven (near Eindhoven). The jury will be chaired by Prof. dr. Bas Edixhoven (UL). The prize money is made available by Bronstee.com.

In order to enter the competition please send an extended abstract (one page approximately, maximum of two pages) and short CV (maximum one page) to the following email address kwg.phd.prize@gmail.com. Please also ask your daily supervisor to send a concise letter of recommendation to the same address.

The deadline for proposals is Sunday, January 28th 2018.
