Who is eligible?

For Best Oral/Poster Presentation, a scientist (ECS) is eligible if

  • they are less than 36 years old, or defended their PhD thesis within the last 5 years;
  • presented paper is primarily their research;
  • they will present the paper

Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs) / Early Career Scientists (ECS) are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts. This is an excellent opportunity for ECOPS/ECS to share their science.


How to apply?

On-line abstract submission page, "Young Scientist" section, click "Yes" radio button, and your paper will be considered.


Who will decide and what are the criteria?

The Best Presentation Award decisions will be made by the Standing Committee Chairmen who will select one Oral and one Poster Award recipient from among the sessions and workshops sponsored by a particular Committee.

Applications will be assessed on clarity, presentation, originality of work, and significance.

Awards recognize the quality of the presentations - not the career achievements of the scientists.


When the Award is announced?

The announcements about the Best Presentation Award are made during the Meeting's Closing Ceremony.

One award will be presented by each science committee to the best ECOP / ECS presentation.
