Subject: 	[Cuga] **Reminder** Thesis Prize- A message from Sebastian Kuhn

The UGBoD will award the "2012 JSA Thesis Prize" for the best
Jefferson Lab related thesis at the summer Users Group meeting,
scheduled  May 29-31, 2013 .

For the 2012 competition, the deadline is February 1, 2013 (we
thank JSA for once again fully funding this prize). A complete package
requires a nomination letter by a senior scientist giving the name and
institution of the person being nominated and the names of three people
who will send letters of recommendation, along with a copy of the
thesis. All materials must be submitted electronically. The three
letters of recommendation must be sent before the deadline, as well; it
is up to the nominator and the candidate for the Prize to follow up on

Theses completed during the calendar year 2012 are eligible, as
well as theses completed during the last quarter of 2011 (if they
haven't been submitted before). The thesis prize submissions will be
judged initially by members of UGBoD, followed by a panel of independent
    experts to select the final winner. Criteria for evaluation are:
quality of written thesis (40%), contribution of student to work (30%),
impact of work (15%), service to JLab physics (15%). On behalf of the
judges, we strongly encourage students considering a submission to keep
their theses as short as possible (preferably under 200 pages). All
materials must be sent by email to Lorelei Chopard (lorelei at jlab.org).
Please contact the chair of UGBoD (skuhn at odu.edu) for any
