euRobotics yearly gives the Georges Giralt PhD Award at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) to recognise great work of Ph.D. students in our community.
Unfortunately and due to series of serious unexpected circumstances, we are extremely sorry to announce that we are unable to deliver the award this year.
Regrettably, we will need to postpone the selection and announcement of a winner for this prestigious prize to ERF 2018, where we plan to host two final selection rounds, one for 2017 and one for 2018.
This will not extend the deadline for submitting theses to this year’s PhD Award. Submission procedures for the PhD award 2018 will be announced in due time.
