Young Scientist Awards

Thanks to our sponsors (including IUCr) a financial support for young scientists is possible in the form of Young Scientist Awards.
Young scientists are defined as graduate students, post-graduate students or post-doctoral fellows with a maximum age of 30 (exceptionally 35). Awards for young scientists will be used only for travel and subsistence expenses (accommodation) and not as a waiver of the registration fees. A preference will be given to those young scientists who have strong crystallographic background, published in IUCr journals and want to present their results at ECDM7.

When you fulfill the above conditions and want to apply please prepare the following documents:

  1. a motivation letter which includes also estimation of costs (tickets, accommodation)
  2. your CV including a list of publications, awards, presentations and other scientific accomplishments and activities
  3. a letter of support from a senior scientist who knows you personally
  4. the abstract of your presentation.

Please create one pdf file containing all the documents and upload it to our Conference Web system using suboption Apply for Young Scientist Award available during registration procedure. Successful applicants will get the awards from the Organisers at the Registration Desk. After the ECDM7 Conference, each successful applicant will also have to fill in a short Report Form and send it to the address defined in the form.
