Every year, the Ph.D. Thesis Award recognizes and rewards excellence in Ph.D. thesis research. Selections for this prestigious award are made by a committee appointed by the Chair of the Collaboration board for students who submitted their Ph.Ds the previous year between August 1 and July 31 and they are recognized at the CMS week in June. The theses are judged on their content, originality, clarity of writing, and impact within CMS and the high energy physics in general and can be written on any CMS-related work (physics analysis, simulation, computing, detector development, engineering, etc.). More information can be found here.
On the right, you can find the names and citations of all awardees, organized by year.
