We have established two kinds of awards for young researchers registered in ISSS-5. You should express your intention to be a candidate at the abstract submission (See Abstract template). Young researchers should be 35 years old or younger on 9 Nov., 2008. The birthday will be checked by the passport or ID card at the judgment during the symposium.

Travel Award: Several excellent Asian young researchers will be supported with \50,000 per person as Travel Award. They will be judged only by their abstracts.

Best Poster Award: Several excellent posters presented by young researchers will be awarded. It will be judged by vote of all participants at the poster session on 10 Nov.

For both Awards, the candidate should be the first author of paper and present it by himself/herself, and is requested to submit a manuscript for the proceeding paper. The winners will be commended with medals at Symposium Banquet.
