Early Career Researcher Awards (updated july 11th, 2019)

Following the same spirit as ICAA16 in Montreal, six awards will be distributed to early career researchers on the basis of the quality of their scientific research and on their ability to communicate these results.

Three of these awards will be attributed to PhD students (or having defended their thesis after Nov. 1st, 2018), and three will be attributed to post-doctoral researchers having defended their thesis after Nov. 1st, 2015.

The awardees will be given the opportunity to give a 20 minutes plenary talk during the conference, and will receive a money award.

To apply for the award, candidates will have to indicate this wish at abstract submission (specific submission category), and will be required to provide the following documents:

  • A full CV with publications (links to download submitted or published papers are welcome)
  • A proof of thesis defense (or submission) date (finished PhD) or PhD registration (unfinished PhD)
  • A description of research activities (max. 6 pages, free format)
  • A recommendation letter from their PhD and/or post-doctoral supervision
  • The applicants will be required to write a paper for the conference, which will be part of the submission package

The organizing commitee recognises that the very best results of the applicants may not be appropriate to publish in the conference proceedings, so that they remain available for proper journal submission. These results may therefore be described in the research activity description.

The ECR candidates will be notified for the acceptance of their abstract independently of the evaluation of their package. Therefore, if they are not attributed an award, their abstract will be directly included in a regular symposium.

The deadline for submission package will be end of january 2020. The ECR applicants will be notified of the jury's decision before the deadline for conference registration, in case their success with the award is necessary for them to justify within their laboratory to attend the conference.

The organization committee particularly encourages the diversity of applications in terms of gender and geographical origin.
