Rules for submission and travel Award competition

Note: When submitting your Abstract please indicate (check the box) that you wish to participate in the Young Scientist’s Symposium. 
A travel award of 350 Euros is available for 3 young scientists participating at the Young Scientist Symposium. From the 13 oral presentations, a committee will choose 3 of the presentations for the award. This award is open to M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, or junior post-doctoral researchers who have obtained their PhD in the past 5 years. Medical, veterinary and dentistry students are also eligible as well as those in residence. The candidate must be less than 35 years of age and should have published at least one first author paper in a peer-reviewed international journal.  In order to be eligible for this Symposium the following criteria must be met. The applicants must submit:

- Abstract via the registration form (before June 18th, 2018)

 - CV by email ( /

- List of publications by email ( /

 These 2 last items are to be received before June 18th, 2018.

Any delay and failure to submit all items will automatically eliminate eligibility of the candidate.



A travel award of 270 Euros is available for 3 young scientists working in the field of inflammation resolution. This award is sponsored by AMBIOTIS, a leading company in bioactive lipid profiling. Ambiotis would like to promote the research and understanding of resolution pathways.
The award is thus open to research students enrolled in a M.Sc. or Ph.D. program or junior post-doctoral researchers who have obtained their PhD in the past 5 years and are less than 35 years of age. 

In order to be eligible for this award, the applicants must submit the abstract via the registration form AND tick the box "a Poster for Competition (3 Ambiotis awards on Resolution for students or post-doc <35 years old)"
