Anile-ECMI Prize for Mathematics in Industry
The Anile-ECMI Prize for Mathematics in Industry was established honouring Professor Angelo Marcello Anile (1948-2007) of Catania, Italy.
It consists of a prize of 2500 Euros and an invitation to give a talk at the ECMI 2023 conference. The prize is given to a young researcher for an excellent PhD thesis in industrial mathematics successfully submitted at a European university in 2021-2022.
To apply for the prize, a copy of the PhD thesis (written in English), together with a letter supporting the application, should be sent as PDF-File to the address firstname.lastname@example.org with “Anile-ECMI and your name” in the subject line to arrive by 16 April, 2023. Also, a scanned document (e.g. for the PhD diploma) is necessary to verify that the thesis was submitted successfully.
2023 Anile-ECMI Prize for Mathematics in Industry was awarded to Marco Tezzele (University of Texas at Austin) for his PhD thesis "Data-driven parameter and model order reduction for industrial optimisation problems with applications in naval engineering".
Hansjörg Wacker Memorial Prize
The Hansjörg Wacker Memorial Prize was established in memory of ECMI founding member Hansjörg Wacker (1939-1991), who was Professor of Numerical Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University, Linz. The prize is jointly funded by ECMI and by a consortium of institutions from Linz which comprise the Industrial Mathematics Institute and the Institute of Computational Mathematics of Johannes Kepler University, and the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It consists of a prize of 1000 Euros and the invitation to attend the ECMI 2023
conference presenting his/her project as a contributed talk.
The prize is awarded for the best mathematical dissertation at the Masters level on an industrial project, which was submitted in 2021-2022 at an ECMI institution.
To apply for the prize, a copy of the Masters thesis should be sent as PDF-File to the address email@example.com with “Hansjörg Wacker-ECMI and your name” in the subject line to arrive by 16 April, 2023. The entry should be accompanied by a letter from the MSc supervisor which summarises the mathematical and industrial relevance of the work, and with details of the cooperation with the industry. If the language of the thesis is not English, then it is necessary to also send an extended summary in English.
Both prizes were given in the Award Ceremony of ECMI 2023 on Monday 26th June after the opening of the conference
2023 Hansjörg Wacker Memorial Prize was awarded to Michael Wiesheu (Technische Universität Darmstadt) for his Master's thesis "Shape optimization of a magnetocaloric cooling system with isogeometric finite elements".
