Young Speaker Contest
Every year the Young Speakers Contest is a roaring success at FYSICA. For that reason we decided to organise the Young Speakers Contest in the context of FYSICA 2019 once more. It’s a contest for the best (oral) presentation of a young speaker. For this contest, a ‘young speaker’ is defined as a PhD student or a postdoc within 5 years of obtaining his/her PhD. The presentation should discuss the own scientific work of the speaker, and will be in English.
The presentations will last 12 minutes. Presentations will take place in the plenary session, for the full audience, and the audience will determine the winner by vote. A wide audience is expected, researchers in academia and industry, teachers and students, with various backgrounds. The prize will be a cash award (750 euros), a certificate, and eternal fame.
Applications must be sent to the NNV before February 15th. A preselection by interview and performance will take place on the afternoon of Monday 11 March.
