- Gold prize: Keano de Vos, for Indistinguishability through Exchangeability in Quantum mechanics?
- Silver prize: Ignacio Montes, for Neighbourhood models induced by the Euclidean distance and the Kullback-Leibler divergence.
- Bronze prize: Daira Pinto Prieto, for A belief model for conflicting and uncertain evidence: connecting Dempster-Shafer theory and the topology of evidence.
- Emerging talent award: James Bailie, for Differential privacy: general inferential limits via intervals of measures.
- Emerging talent award: Lydia Castronovo, for A generalized notion of conjunction for conditional events.
- Special jury recognition: Roman Malinowski, for Uncertainty propagation using copulas in a 3D stereo-matching pipeline.
