KWG Prize for PhD students, call for proposals
The BeNeLux Mathematical Congress 2016 will be held on March 22 and 23 at Science Park in Amsterdam. During the conference there will be lectures by six candidates for the PhD prize. The PhD prize award ceremony will be part of the closing ceremony of the conference. The winner of the award receives, besides the prestige attached to winning, a monetary reward of 1000 euro. The prize is made available by Bronstee.com .

This year the PhD prize competition will be open to PhD students from all universities in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The selection committee consists of Arjeh Cohen, Jason Frank, Jan van Mill (chairman), Yvik Swan and Anton Thalmaier.

The procedure to select candidates is as follows: we ask thesis advisors to propose candidates to the selection committee. This can be done by sending an email with an extended abstract (one or two pages) and a short CV of each candidate to the following email address: kwg.phd.prize@gmail.com. The deadline for proposals is January 15, 2016.

The selection committee will then review the proposals and narrow down the list of candidates to six candidates who will be invited to give a presentation of 20 minutes at the BeNeLux Mathematical Congress 2016 on March 23 in the morning. Out of these six candidates the selection committee will then select the prize winner.
