Premio di dottorato ANILE PRIZE 2022
ANILE PRIZE 2022
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.
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.
A committee composed of people nominated by the association will select the successful candidate.
Applications should be made using the application form (also available at assoama.it) accompanied by:

- A curriculum vitae
A pdf file containing the application form and all the required attachments should be e-mailed to .
- The thesis supervisor should e-mail (directly to ) a brief report/recommendation (no more than two pages) . This should include a summary of the PhD thesis, placing it within the context of its contribution to the associated research field and containing an assessment of the balance of input from the student, the supervisor and any other people involved regarding the basic ideas and strategy of the work, the development and use of necessary techniques and the interpretation of the results.
- The application will be supported by at least two recommendation letters written by well-known researchers and directly e-mailed by the authors to
Notification of the Award
The result of the competition will be announced within December 31st 2022.
The announcement will appear on the association website.
If it is considered that no thesis reaches the standard required, the Selection Committee may decide not to award the prize.
The Prize will be announced again in 2024.
Prize Award Date
The award will be presented to the winner before March 31st 2023.
Description of the Award
The award will consist of:
- A citation certificate
- A cash award of € 5000 (tax included)
- Refund of reasonable travel expenses to Catania
- The winner will also be given free life membership of the Angelo Marcello Anile Association (as an ordinary member).
The president of the Angelo Marcello Anile Association will present the award to the recipient during an official event held in Catania by the end of December 2023.
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.
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
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.
