Young Researchers' Forum

Following the tradition of DAGM, GCPR 2017 will again host a Young Researchers Forum (YRF) dedicated to the presentation of outstanding achievements during Bachelor’s, Master’s or Diploma studies. The forum provides an opportunity for young researchers to present their research, form new connections and build a community.

A Best Master’s Thesis award is presented and a limited number of student travel grants are available.

500 Euro Best Master’s Thesis Award

Young researchers that have received their Master’s degree after March 7, 2016, are encouraged to submit a full GCPR submission based on their Master’s thesis. The submission should be marked as “yrf-submission”. The young researcher should be the first author, however, co-authorship of supervisors is allowed. The best submission will be honored with the 500 Euro Best Master’s Thesis award during GCPR 2017.

Please visit the DAGM website for detailed information on requirements and submission details.
