In 2022, the Technical Committee Informatics for Environmental Protection of the German Informatics Society will again award the “Environmental Informatics Prize for Students”. This prize has been awarded annually since 2003. The winners are invited to present their projects during the EnviroInfo 2022 conference in Hamburg.
The prize is awarded for student’s works in the field of Environmental Informatics. Such work takes the form of projects undertaken either as part of a course or for a degree (excluding PhD) at an academic university or a university of applied sciences. The projects must demonstrate the contribution of methods and technologies of informatics to the solution of environmental problems or dissemination of information supporting sustainable development in general.
Students of all subjects from all countries are eligible to participate either as individuals or groups (project teams).
Submissions will be most successful if they clearly demonstrate the transfer of informatics knowhow to practical application, resulting in a real decrease in stress on the environment or contributing to environmental consciousness or to sustainable development in general.
The prize sum of probably 2.000 € is usually divided among three candidate projects as follows:
1st prize: € 1000
2nd prize: € 600
3rd prize: € 400
The jury consists of the heads of the International Technical Committee “Informatics for Environmental Protection, Sustainable Development and Risk Management” of the German Informatics Society (GI).
Please submit descriptions of your completed project not exceeding five pages in English, including an abstract of a half page. If possible, a link to supporting information (such as a Master’s Thesis) should be provided. The jury may request further information on projects that get short-listed. Contributions must be submitted to the Technical Committee Informatics for Environmental Protection of the German Informatics Society only via email (email@example.com).
Deadline for submission: 12th July 2022
