Philipp Hanisch Receives Georg Helm Prize
Each year, the Association for the Promotion of Students at Technische Universität Dresden (Verein zur Förderung von Studierenden der Technischen Universität Dresden) recognizes the most outstanding academic works written by students at TU Dresden with the Georg Helm Prize. Each Faculty and Central Academic Unit at TU Dresden may nominate one dissertation and one Diplom thesis or comparable academic work (master’s thesis, State Examination). Among the submitted theses, the prize jury, which consists of representatives of the Association for the Promotion of Students at Technische Universität Dresden, the Rector and other representatives of the University Executive Board, selects the best three or four theses.
With the award, Philipp Hanisch joins the Georg Helm Prize winners at ICCL, which already feature the supervisors of the thesis Markus Krötzsch and Anni-Yasmin Turhan. Even though the thesis marks the end of Philipp Hanisch’s studies of computer science and his time as student assistant at ICCL, it is not the end of the collaboration: Philipp Hanisch returned as PhD student and scientific coordinator of SECAI last September.
