The Young Investigator Award (YIA)

Knowing the importance of including young researchers as active participants of the conference, ISABS encourages Ph.D. and graduate students working toward a degree in the fields related to the conference program themes as well as postdoctoral researchers to join the conference and apply for Young Investigator Award (YIA). Therefore, for each ISABS conference YIA are presented for outstanding research presented by investigators who are less than thirty-five -years old. The Scientific Advisory Committee of the conference selects finalists from nominees who submit abstracts. Besides the attractive prize of 500 USD, each award recipient is given the opportunity for a podium presentation. Author(s) of each selected abstract receive the Young Investigator Award Certificate as well.

Authors wishing to be considered for the YIA should complete the appropriate box during online abstract submission. Results of YIA applications will be notified by the end of April.

Recipients of the Young Investigator Award will be notified by e-mail and will be listed here.
