The David Hestenes Prize was instituted in 2015 at the 6th Conference on Applied Geometric Algebras in Computer Science and Engineering (AGACSE) in Barcelona, Spain and is awarded each three years at the occasion of an AGACSE Conference. The prize intends to encourage young researchers to compete for excellence in their research and is awarded for the best work submitted by a young researcher under 35 years old.
