Young Investigator Award

The ISST Board invites submissions for the 1st Biennial Young Investigator Award. The recipient of the award will receive a certificate and a cash prize of €1000. The award will be based upon a presentation (poster, symposium talk, or hot topic talk) to be presented in the Vienna 2016 ISST conference, as well as on evidence of engagement in a program of research that is consistent with the mission of ISST and holds a promise of developing theoretical or practical applications that represent clear advances to the field. The work should eventually take the form of independent or collaborative work published in high-impact journals, competitive grant support, etc.

Submissions should include the following:

  • Submission of a poster, symposium talk, or hot topic talk which includes designation that the submitter is interested in being considered for the Young Investigator Award. This is done through the regular submission portal.
  • Concurrent with the submission (i.e., by the January 15, 2016 deadline), all candidates for the Award shall send a Curriculum Vitae (CV) to the conference email address: EMAIL  
  • Candidates must be within their graduate (or post-graduate) training, or no more than 10 years after the completion of the terminal degree in their field (e.g., PhD, MD).
