The ATLAS Collaboration has over 5500 members in over 180 institutions around the globe. But, did you know that over 1000 of these members are PhD students? Students contribute strongly and critically to all areas of the experiment while learning valuable skills for their degrees. The ATLAS Thesis Awards are selected annually by a dedicated committee to recognise outstanding contributions in the context of PhD theses.
The Outstanding Achievement Awards give recognition to excellent contributions made to the collaboration. Nominations come from across the collaboration, in areas such as technical coordination, detector systems, as well as activity areas including upgrade, combined performance and outreach. Winners are selected annually by the Collaboration Board Chair Advisory Group.
