Carbon Journal Prize 2014

The journal Carbon and its publisher, Elsevier, will once again be awarding the Carbon Journal Prize, to be
presented at the International Carbon Conference held this year in Jeju, Korea, June 29th-July 4th, 2014.
The prize is given for “an outstanding Ph.D. thesis in carbon material science and technology” defended in the calendar year 2013.
 
The Carbon Journal is now accepting written nominations for this award, which is open to researchers who
have successfully defended a Ph.D. thesis between January 1 and December 31, 2013 (the date of the thesis defense, rather than the graduation date, is to be used as the criterion for eligibility).
 
The nomination should include:

  1. Nominee’s CV;
  2. A 3-page summary of the major results of the thesis, including a statement on the importance to carbon
science;
  3. A 1-page nomination letter from the thesis advisor;
  4. Documentation of successful thesis defense during 2013.

The prize consists of a 2-year electronic subscription to the journal, and travel bursary of up to $1000 USD to attend the conference.  The winner will be invited to present selected results from their thesis in a special
award seminar at the 2014 International Carbon Conference.

The deadline for entry is February 16, 2014. Please submit nominations to the Carbon Editor-in-Chief, Robert
Hurt, at CarbonJournal@brown.edu
