The ONETEP Developers Group (ODG) invites applications for the annual Karl Wilkinson prize. The prize is awarded for either a method development or application with the ONETEP linear-scaling first principles quantum mechanics program that, in the opinion of the ODG, is expected to contribute most strongly to the advancement of electronic structure theory and its applications. The winner will receive a £250 award and a certificate signed by the members of the ODG. The prize winner will be invited to give a lecture at the next ONETEP summer school (Masterclass) during 27-30 August 2019 at the University of Warwick.

The prize is dedicated to the memory of Dr Karl Wilkinson, who worked on code and method development in ONETEP, including GPU porting, hybrid MPI-OMP parallelism, algorithms for FFT box operations, and computational simulations related to the development of biofuels. Sadly, Karl passed away on 25th of August 2017, at the age of 36. Karl was a bright scientist, a friend, and a continuing collaborator in the ONETEP community.



Entry is open to all researchers (except the members of the ODG) from academia, national labs, or industry, who have recently published in an international peer-reviewed journal the work which they present for the award.



The submission deadline for the inaugural Karl Wilkinson prize is 30 June 2019.


Submission format

A journal paper that presents the work submitted for the prize

A one page (A4) letter from the applicant outlining the significance and impact of the work described in the paper and the role played by the ONETEP code.

Entries (PDF documents preferred) should be submitted by email, with “Karl Wilkinson Prize" as the subject header, to Prof Chris-Kriton Skylaris ([email protected]). Any queries should also be directed to Prof Skylaris.
