Congratulations to all the authors!

Each winner is awarded a cash prize (USD 500).

We got 25 submissions and 11 were selected for jury evaluation. The quality of the papers was particularly high and we had a few tied-up top papers which required a second round evaluation by the Jury members.

The jury members this year were: - Dr. Ko Ayusawa, - Dr. Fanny Ficuciello, - Dr. Zachary Manchester, - Dr. Ludovic Righetti, - Dr. Olivier Stasse, - Dr. Wei Zhang

A warm thank you to them.
