PeerJ Computer Science – Spotlight on our Awards Program for computer science researchers

The PeerJ Awards program together with the journal PeerJ Computer Science recognizes outstanding research by early career researchers across multiple subject areas within computer science. We have been pleased to be able to support the computer science community in this way.

Our awards program was started in 2018. By teaming up with a number of conferences to offer these awards our aim is to make it as easy as possible for organizers to reward excellence in science, support students and early career researchers, and signal to the wider research community that open science is better science.

Below is a listing of PeerJ Award winners from past conferences and workshops within the computer science community and related disciplines:
1. Sebastian Daberdaku

PeerJ Computer Science awards typically include a free publication (upon submission, peer review, and acceptance) within the open access and peer-reviewed journal PeerJ Computer Science. The award winner is also given the opportunity to be featured on our blog and social media with an interview about their research.

If you are organizing a conference or workshop (either physical or virtual!) and would like to offer a PeerJ Award at your event, do get in touch at communities@peerj.com.
