The Angelo Marcello Anile Association announces the fifth edition of the Anile Prize.
The Prize has been previously awarded to Dr. Alessio Figalli, Dr. Andrea Brini, Dr. Claudio Cremaschini and Dr. Mattia Zanella
The  prize will be awarded for a PhD thesis written in English and submitted in an Italian university, concerning a topic that bridges the gap between mathematics and its applications. Works that use advanced mathematics and/or propose new mathematical models and methods  FOR  HEALTHCARE (particularly related to epidemics) are strongly encouraged. The work will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the mathematics and of its impact on the application.

The Prize Fund
Funds  for this prize are contributed by the Angelo Marcello Anile Association.

Eligibility
The candidate must have completed his/her doctoral dissertation and all other requirements for his/her doctorate during the period running from  May 1st 2018 to July 31st 2022.

Deadline for application:      July 31st 2022.

Prize Committee
A committee composed of people nominated by the association will select the successful candidate.

Chorafas Foundation Prize

Some awards are traditionally offered to the best PhD students. Among them the Chorafas foundation award.

The Dimitris N. Chorafas Foundation was established in March 1992 by Professor Dimitris N. Chorafas, an international scholar and author of more than 100 publications on economics, business, science and information technology, in collaboration with the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences, Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences, Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences and Swiss Academy of Natural Sciences.

The Foundation awards annually some prizes which aim at encouraging extraordinary scientific achievements in computers and communications technology.

The prize is awarded to the most qualified PhD students younger than 30 years selected from the 26 University partners from 15 different countries all over the world (UK, USA, France, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands, Israel, Japon, Sweden, Greece, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Lithuania, Canada).

Each award is of USD 5 000,00 and at Politecnico di Milano is assigned to 2 PhD degrees in the PhD in Information Technology Program.

Conditions:

Selection is made among the PhD students who completed their PhD Program in the course of the year of the competition for the Foundation’s prizes. The Board of the PhD in Information Technology Program selects the students and sends the candidatures to the Board of the Chorafas Foundation.

The selected candidates will be chosen on the basis of:

• Final result of the PhD thesis
• Curriculum vitae

Deadlines:

The nominations of the Politecnico di Milano are sent to the Foundation within the month of April of each year. The Dimitris N. Chorafas Foundation communi- cates the official results of the prize winner within September.
