Our postdoctoral member Maxim Rylov was recently awared the first prize in the 2014 peer-reviewed paper competition of Cartographic Perspectives (Journal of the North American Cartographic Information Society NACIS). The prizewinning paper is entitled “Pairwise Line Labeling of Geographic Boundaries: An Efficient and Practical Algorithm“. The jury praised the paper to be “impressively useful and lucid, and a valuable contribution to our literature.” Beyond academic honours, the award also comes with a 1.350$ cash prize. Andreas Reimer was also involved in this work by co-authoring the article. Congratulations for the great work to both of you!
