ECCOMAS PhD Olympiad

The 13th ECCOMAS PhD Olympiad will be organized in the framework of the 7th ECCOMAS Young Investigators Conference 2023.

The ECCOMAS PhD Olympiad, organized every year, aims at presenting the best PhD theses defended during the previous year. Every affiliated National or Regional Association of ECCOMAS is represented by a number of selected PhDs submitted for consideration for the two ECCOMAS PhD Awards.

The local organizers of the Olympiad are responsible for this process including the decision on the number of participants of the Olympiad and the inquiry of the member associations.

A complimentary registration to the conference where the Olympiad is held will be offered to all the finalists of the ECCOMAS best PhD thesis award.

During the congress there will be two PhD Olympiad sessions during which the presentations will be evaluated by an evaluation committee. The tw best presentations will be awarded.

In assessing the quality of the presentations, the evaluation committee should explicitly take into account the following attributes:
• quality of the talk
• clarity of the slides
• communication to the audience
• scientific interest
• reference and credit to works of others

The deadline for extended abstract submissions is 15th April and the template with the instructions for preparing the extended abstract can be downloaded here (LaTex download here).
