2019 Entropy Travel Award Winners Announced

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Travel Awards, sponsored by MDPI and Entropy. The awards were granted to three outstanding young researchers working in the thematic areas:

Information Theory

Zahra Baghali Khanian is a PhD student at ICFO Barcelona and UAB Barcelona. She works on quantum Shannon theory and applications in quantum information. She is planning to present her works “Distributed Compression of Correlated Classical-Quantum Sources: The Price of Ignorance” and “Entanglement-Assisted Quantum Data Compression” at the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT2019, 7–12 July 2019, Paris, France). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to be used to attend this conference.

Statistical Theory

Lorenzo Caprini is a PhD student at Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), whose research is focused on the study of active matter systems. He is planning to present his work “Activity-Induced Delocalization and Freezing in Self-Propelled Systems” at the 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics (StatPhys 27, 8–12 July 2019, Buenos Aires, Argentina). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to be used to attend this conference.

Thermodynamics

Julian Gonzalez Ayala is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Salamanca, whose research interest involves general properties of thermodynamics systems, optimization and stability of operation regimes, thermal fluctuations, multi-objective optimization, optimization of hybrid power plants, and entropy analysis of complex systems and self-organized critical systems. He is planning to present his work “Thermodynamic Self-Improvement in the Stability of a Low Dissipative Refrigerator Engine” at the 15th Joint European Thermodynamics Conference (JETC2019, 21–24 May 2019, Barcelona, Spain). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to be used to attend this conference.

Selecting the three winners was a difficult decision, as we received many high-quality applications from around the world. We thank all applicants. We look forward to receiving more applications for the Entropy 2020 Travel Awards which will be open for applications from September 2019.
