EuroSys Jochen Liedtke Young Researcher Award

The Eurosys Jochen Liedtke Young Researcher Award is given annually, starting in 2014, for contributions in the research areas covered by Eurosys. The Award consists of a certificate and a 2,000 Euro cash prize. It will be presented at the EuroSys conference and is currently sponsored by Google. 

Eligibility

A candidate must have received his or her Ph.D. no more than ten years before the date of nomination.

The actual award date of the degree according to the rules of the institution where the degree was granted is used as the reference date. The eligibility period may be extended for eligible career breaks, such as maternity/paternity leave, obligatory national service, and long-term illness.

The candidate must have spent a significant fraction of his or her career in Europe, and at the time of nomination must be employed by a European institution. There is no restriction on the nationality of the candidate.

Members of the selection committee and Eurosys officers are not eligible.

Selection

The selection committee will choose the recipient based on contributions in the research areas covered by EuroSys. Contributions may be evidenced by, without limitation, publications in selective venues, highly-cited works, impact in industry, and production of widely used software. Participation in EuroSys and in the European research community will be an additional consideration.

Nomination Procedure

Candidates must be nominated for the Award. Self-nominations are not accepted. Members of the selection committee and EuroSys officers may encourage nominations, but may not themselves nominate a candidate. Unsuccessful nominations may be resubmitted in subsequent years. The nomination packet should be submitted to the awards committee chair and contain:

  • A statement of up to 500 words describing the candidate's research contributions.
  • A statement of up to 250 words describing the candidate's contributions to EuroSys and the European research community.
  • A statement of up to 250 words documenting the eligibility of the candidate according to the above eligibility rules.
  • CV.
  • The names and email addresses of three references (excluding the nominator) who will write letters of recommendation for the candidate.  The references should submit their letters of recommendation directly to the award committee chair.
For the current edition, nominations and letters of recommendation should be sent by email to the award committee chair at  druschel@mpi-sws.org by March 1, 2017.
