Early career scientists

We encourage early career scientists to participate in the ASC, and a number of initiatives are in place to assist and welcome you to the conference.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Early career scientist events 

The ASC will offer events especially for early career scientists. These will include mentoring programmes, career chats, and a skills workshop​ on getting published. ​​

Mentor meetup

Sub Stop

During the welcome reception, members of the Science and Advisory committees as well as other key people from the ICES community will gather at the Sub Stop for you to meet and ask all the questions you ever had about ICES.

BONUS/ICES getting published skills workshop

Career chat

Early career scientist awards

Three early career scientist awards will be presented at the conference (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.

The awardee is the first author and major contributor of the research presented. They don't need be first-time presenters at an ASC, however, they should not have received a previous early career scientist award from ICES.

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

​​Travel funds for early career scientists  

The online application system for travel funds is closed, and successful recipients have been notified.  

To be eligible, the applicant must:

  • be 35 years of age or younger 
    have completed their PhD in the last five years

  • be of a nationality and affiliation in an ICES member country

  • have had an abstract accepted for ASC.
