|All students participate in the Best Student Presentation Award competition. The awards are dedicated to the memory of Professor Roger Kelly,
who made many seminal contributions in the field of laser-matter interaction and devoted much attention to the education of students and young researchers.
The awards are given in two categories:
Young Researchers — for first- and second-year PhD students, as well as Master and undergraduate students, and
Rising Stars — for senior PhD students (more than two years in the PhD program) and postdoctoral researchers.
All Lecturers act as members of the Award Selection Committee to evaluate the quality of the presentations given by each student. The scores provided by the
Lecturers are collected, and the top-ranked students are identified in both categories.
