“Best PhD Award”, 2nd Prize

I’m very pleased to learn that my PhD thesis has been awarded 2nd prize in Computer Science’s “Best PhD Thesis” award for the year 2011 (when it was submitted)! I’m told there’s a certificate and a cash prize – sounds like something nice to hang in my house, and a celebratory dinner with my girlfriend.

This opens the door for submission at a national level… fingers crossed.

update (12/10/12): Alas I did not win at the national level. Never mind, it was an honour to have been put forward and to to recognised in my department!
