Awards | The 2015 Algerian Paper of the Year Awards

The 2015 Algerian Paper of the Year Awards Winners Announcement Ceremony was held on the 2nd of May 2015 at Queen Mary University of London in the UK. The event was also live streamed over the internet.  عقد حفل الإعلان عن الفائزين بجائزة أحسن منشورة علمية جزائرية في طبعتها الثالثة يوم الثاني من ماي 2015 بجامعة كوين ماري بلندن بالمملكة المتحدة . كما تم عرض الحفل على المباشر عبر الانترنت

For us, the event was extremely insightful, informative and inspiring, effectively capturing the essence of anasr.org’s mission and current of objective of building bridges between Algeerian academics, scientists and researchers inside and outside of Algerian as a foundation for a strong and independent community.الحفل كان مناسبة رائعة تجسدت فيها مبادئ شبكة النصر و التي تهدف أساسا إلى بناء و توطيد العلاقات بين العلماء و الباحثين الجزائرين داخل و خارج الوطن و ذلك للتأسيس لمجتمع علمي متين و مستقل في إنجازاته و أهدافه.

anasr.org and its awards committee would like to thank all participants who nominated their papers for The 2015 Algerian Paper of the Year Awards, all those who participated in the shortlisting and reviewing panels, the keynote speaker at the winners announcement ceremony, Prof Mohammed Saad, and our special guests who provided insightful commentaries on the winning papers; Dr. Abdennour Abbas (USA), Dr Yassine Amrani (UK) and Prof Nidhal Guessoum (UAE). يتقدم فريق عمل شبكة النصر و لجنة الجوائز بالشكر الجزيل لكل المشاركين الذين رشحو منشوراتهم العلمية لهذا العدد من المسابقة. كما نشكر كل الباحثين الذين ساهمو في تحديد القوائم الاولية و كذلك المراجعة المحكمة لتحديد الفائزين . الشكر الجزيل لضيف الشرف الاستاذ محمد سعد على المحاضرة الرائعة التي ألقاها و كل الضوف الكرام الذين أعلنو عن الفائزين و قدموا تعليقات على الأبحاث المنشورة : الدكتور عبد النور عباس من الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية , الدكتور ياسين عمراني من المملكة المتحدة و الأستاذ نضال ڤسوم من الإمارات العربية المتحدة.
