A limited number of awards are available to assist young scientists to attend EMTS 2016. To qualify for application for the Young Scientist Award (YSA), the applicant
All successful applicants are expected to participate fully in the scientific activities of the Conference.
Successful applicants will receive:
Basic accommodation will be provided by the Conference. The YSA awardees may arrange alternative accommodation but such arrangements are entirely at their own expenses. Limited funds will also be available as contributions to travel costs of young scientists from developing countries.
Every YSA applicant must
The (extended) application deadline is February 29, 2016. If applying for travel costs, please also provide a travel plan.
The Young Scientist Program Committee (YSPC) will peer-review applications, and select the awardees. All YSA applicants are notified of the results by e-mail by mid May. Every successful applicant must confirm by the end of May that he/she will attend EMTS 2016. The list of YSA awardees will be announced on the EMTS 2016 website in early June.
All papers selected for the Young Scientist Award are subject to further evaluation for the Young Scientist Best Paper Awards. The Young Scientists present their papers in regular och special sessions and in addition in a special YSA Poster Session on Tuesday, Aug 16. The YSPC selects three winners based on the papers and the poster presentations. In addition to the winner certificates, the three winners recieve:
The Young Scientist Awards and the Young Scientist Best Paper Awards will be presented during the EMTS 2016 banquet.
All the three winners of the Young Scientist Best Paper Award will be invited to submit a full-length paper to the “Special Issue of the Best Papers from the EMTS 2016 Young Scientist Award”, which is planned to be published in the March 2017 issue of the URSI Radio Science Bulletin.
