Environmental Informatics Prize 2008 for Students

For the sixth time the Technical Committee "Informatics for Environmental Protection" of the German Informatics Society will award a prize for students' 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, to the management of environmental risks or to sustainable development in general.

Students of all subjects are eligible to participate either as individuals or groups. Please submit descriptions of your completed project not exceeding five pages, and include an abstract of a half page.

The jury will request further information if necessary on projects that get shortlisted. The most important criterion according to which submissions will be judged is the successful transfer of informatics know-how to practical applications that contribute to a real decrease in stress on the environment, to environmental consciousness or to sustainable development in general.

The prize is endowed with € 1000. The winners are invited and agree in advance to give a short talk on the awarded project at the 22nd Environmental Informatics Conference (EnviroInfo 2008), taking place at the University of Lüneburg, Germany. Conference fee, travel costs and accommodation will be covered up to € 500.

The jury consists of the heads of the Technical Committee "Informatics for Environmental Protection".
Please send your e-mail submission by Thursday, 15th May 2008 to the chair of the awarding committee:

Prof. Lorenz Hilty Empa
Lerchenfeldstr. 5
