We are delighted to encourage participation of younger researchers through a competition for the best paper/poster from researchers younger than 35 years old on the first day of the conference. Adjudication will be based on scientific content and quality of the presentation. Young researchers should participate in the ITM as any other attendee, but should inform the Scientific Committee Chair at the time of submission of papers that they are candidates for the award. The award winners will receive a cash awards for first, second and third places respectively.
