New Talent Award

Terms of the award

We invite applicants to submit their papers to be considered for the New Talent Award. The topic of the paper has to be in a field that is covered by the SciCADE conference.

The winner of the best paper will be invited to give a plenary talk at SciCADE 2019 in Innsbruck.

All local expenses will be covered for this speaker, and the registration fee will be waived as well.

Who is eligible to apply

The recipient must be a graduate student, or should have obtained a PhD or equivalent degree within the four calendar years prior to the year of the award, i.e. they have obtained their PhD on or after January 1, 2015. The committee may consider exceptions to the four-year rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing or child rearing, or military service. The award can be received only once in a lifetime.
