The European Grid Infrastructure is pleased to announce the EGI Writing Prize 2013 in association with iSGTW.
We invite researchers and science writers from all over the world to send us engaging articles about practical applications of grid computing in science. The competition is split into two categories:
- Researchers: PhD students and early career scientists (up to seven years after finishing PhD) who have used or are using grid computing for their research. We'll consider all fields of research from humanities to geology or anything else.
- Writers: This category includes everyone with an interest in science writing (bloggers, freelancers, journalists); science communication students we're looking at you!
The prize for each category is €500 worth of electronic gadgets of your choice. You pick the gadgets, we pick up the bill. You will also get your article published on EGI's website and newsletter and on iSGTW – a weekly online magazine specialised in e-Science. The winners will also receive a free ticket to the EGI Community Forum in Manchester, where the award ceremony will be held.
Entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25th January 2013 and must be no more than 800 words long. The winning entries for each category will be selected by a panel of EGI and iSGTW staff. You can find out more on the competition website.
