Dean's List 2020 - Representatives awarded
The CSBME Dean's List exists since 2018. With the inclusion in this list, we want to honor the best students of our Bachelor's degree programs. The list features the top 5% students of each class (each combination of study program and semester). At the CSBME Faculty Day, the representatives received a certificate from Dean Roderick Bloem and Vice Rector Stefan Vorbach to commemorate their outstanding achievements. Congratulations!

Dynatrace Scholarship worth 12.000€ awarded to Anton Klinger
At this year's CSBME Faculty Day, the Dynatrace scholarship worth 12.000€ was awarded for the first time. The computer science student Anton Klinger received the merit scholarship for the two-year Master's program from Dean Roderick Bloem and Chris Werding, head of the Graz Dynatrace site. His plans: "I work on a 10-year-old notebook. Now I can finally buy a new PC," Klinger explained at the presentation of the scholarship. The 25-year-old also wants to invest in his great passion, the development of computer games. His biggest and most promising project is the action game Pixel Soldier. Congratulations, Anton!

Sponsorship prize of the Forum Technik & Gesellschaft awarded for the best Master's and Doctoral theses
Theses with social relevance are the focus of the prize, which has been awarded annually by the Forum Technik & Gesellschaft since 2003. In 2020, five master's theses and six dissertations were presented online in the final round. The first place went to Martin Schwarzl for his Master's thesis "NetSpectre" for proving that attacks on the intermediate memory of processors succeed not only on devices on site, but also over the network. The third place to Patrick Ofner for his work on low-frequency brain waves in Brain-Computer-Interface applications. A special prize was awarded to Barbara Gigerl, whose master's thesis examined how the concept of transfer entropy can be used to identify influencers in social networks. Congratulations to all!
