The scientific committee is pleased to announce that they will offer awards for the best presentation from Early Career Researchers (ECR) at the conference. Abstracts written by ECRs assessed as the highest quality will be shortlisted for judging at the conference. Each presentation shortlisted will have the potential to win an award and gift prize. The winner will be announced at the conference dinner.
You might consider yourself to be an Early Career Researcher (ECR) if you are currently undertaking postgraduate research, studying for a PhD, or have recently completed (within 3 years of working full-time, part-time equivalent, since your award). In some cases, you may be more experienced, but new to this research field. If you are an ECR and submitting a research or theme abstract, please tick the “Early Career Researcher” box on the abstract submission page.
The scientific committee will also present a prize for best Poster Award. Posters will be displayed on Wednesday the June 5 and Thursday June 6, 2019. The winner will be announced at the conference dinner.
