  • One award for the best oral presentation given by a junior scientist who is in the same time the presenter and the first author of the submitted manuscript.
  • One award for the best poster presented by a junior scientist who is the first author of the work.
Students and junior scientists interested in participating in the ISHS Young Minds Award should indicate this when submitting the abstract in ROSA by ticking the appropriate box which is available in the abstract entry page. For more information click here: ISHS Young Minds Award
