We are delighted to encourage participation of early career researchers through a competition for the best paper/poster from researchers younger than 35 years old on the first day of the conference. Adjudication will be based on scientific content and quality of the presentation. Applicants for the award should participate in the ITM as any other attendee, but should inform the Scientific Committee Chair at the time of submission of abstracts that they are candidates for the award. Three winners will receive cash awards. The ITM 2018 Early Career Award is sponsored by Ramboll Environ.
VITO provides a bursary for a limited number of graduate students (MSc or PhD) who will be fully registered as graduate students at the time of the meeting and have their abstracts accepted. Graduate students should apply for this award to the Scientific Committee Chair Clemens Mensink at the time of submission of their abstract.
