The Rozenberg Tulip Award is presented by the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering annually and recognizes a prominent scientist - the DNA Computer Scientist of the Year - who has shown continuous contributions, pioneering, original contributions, and who has influenced the development of the field. 

"Research in DNA computing and molecular programming draws together mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to address the analysis, design, and synthesis of information-based molecular systems," explains the ISNSCE

Kari presented a plenary talk at the conference this year entitled Exploring the Space of DNA Signatures
