Announcement : "T.S. Papatheodorou" Young Researcher Awards
The 2014 T.S. Papatheodorou Award Committee is pleased to announce that the winners of the T.S. Papatheodorou Young Researcher
Awards based on papers submitted and presented during the NUMAN 2014 conference are the following:
The prize for Numerical Analysis: Theory, Methods and Applications, to be equally shared by Anthony Ashton of Cambridge University for his paper
"Functional Analytic Framework of the Fokas Method for Elliptic Boundary Value Problems" and Gulcin
Mihriye Muslu of Istanbul Technical University, for her paper "A Fourier pseudospectral method for the nonlocal nonlinear wave equation" coauthored with Handan Borluk.
The prize for High Performance Scientific Computing to be awarded to Nikolaos D. Vilanakis of Technical University of Crete for his paper
"Solving Discontinuous Collocation
equations for a class of brain tumor models on GPUs" coauthored with Ioannis E. Athanasakis.
The prizes are awarded to honor the memory of Professor Theodore Papatheodorou, and eligible were PhD candidates and Postdocs (up to 7 years after PhD commencement)
who had entered their candidacy for the award and had submitted and presented papers during the NUMAN 2014 conference, held in September 2014 in Chania, Greece.
The Committee would like to congratulate these authors for their outstanding contributions.
The Committee also distinguished two more researchers that were runners up for the best paper prize in Numerical Analysis and decided to honor them with a congratulatory letter.
These researchers were:
Drosos Kourounis of the Universita della Svizzera Italiana, for his paper "Constraint handling for gradient-based optimization of compositional reservoir flow and
Kevin Crooks of Cambridge University, for his paper, "Two numerical implementations of the Fokas method for elliptic equations in a polygon".
The Committee would like to thank the winners as well as all the authors who entered the competition for their papers and presentations that honor in the best possible manner
the loving memory of Theodore Papatheodorou. The Committee is also grateful to the University of Patras and to the Computer Technology Institute and
Publications "Diophantus" for supporting these awards.
