IRMMW-THz Society Young Scientist Award
About the Award
At the 2016 IRMMW-THz Society Board meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, the International Organizing Committee voted to institute a Young Scientist Award to recognize outstanding, interdisciplinary scientific work by a young scientist who has made innovative contributions and discoveries in the field of infrared, millimeter, and Terahertz waves.
The Award consists of a cash prize of $2000 and a certificate of recognition of the research achievements of the award recipient.
At each annual meeting of the Conference, the Young Scientist Award Committee meets to evaluate the applications that have been submitted and elects the recipient of the Prize for the following year. The Award recipient will be invited to deliver a keynote presentation to the IRMMW-THz conference following the selection.
