The Motivator Prize has been awarded once a year in spring since 2000. The prize is awarded to the best seminar papers of the previous year (maximum of five papers). The prize is the result of an initiative by students who wanted to use this new format to draw more attention to excellent work by young researchers. A jury selects the works to be awarded. The prizes are awarded each May at a seminar event.
