ICES Annual Science Conference 2015

Early career scientists

ICES encourages early career scientists to participate in the Annual Science Conference
and a number of initiatives are in place to assist
and welcome you to the conference.
Early career scientist awards
Three Early career scientist awards will be presented at the conference closing ceremony (two for oral presentations and one for poster presentation). These awards will emphasize the quality of the presentations and not the career achievements of the early career scientists.

Scientists eligible for the Early Career Scientist awards are those no older than 35 years at the time of the ASC. The awardees need not be first-time presenters at an ASC. However, they should not have received a previous Early Career Scientist award from ICES. It is assumed that the awardee is the first author and major contributor of the research presented. 

The prizes consist of framed certificates and €1,000 vouchers to be used to cover participation costs in an ICES sponsored activity, i.e. a training course, expert group meeting, symposium, or
workshop, but not the ASC. The voucher must be redeemed within 24 months of the award.
