This year, selecting the best doctoral work was very difficult as we had to choose among truly excellent PhD theses. In accordance with the award statute, the committee decided to present three Outstanding PhD Thesis Awards: to Dr. Martin Vodopivec, Dr. Jernej Pavšič and Dr. Denis Kutnjak. In the scope of their doctoral work, all three recipients published three or four scientific papers in high impact factor journals; their publications have been cited a number of times or even highlighted as exceptionally important in journals that focus on cutting edge scientific discoveries. In addition to publications based on their own doctoral work, all three candidates also collaborated with other researchers in the preparation of scientific publications for highly cited journals with impact factors.
