At its closing session on November 30, 2005, the jury decided unanimously to award the prize to
- Dr. Daniele Oriti
for the thesis Spin foam models of quantum spacetime which, in the jury opinion, contributed substantially to a new approach to the quantum theory of gravitation.
Furthermore, the jury is pleased to declare that also the other four submitted theses are on a high level and appreciates the work of their authors.
