Open to all society members who qualify. Applications are short and the deadline is 31 May. The applicants will be informed soon.

(27 February 2021) Our first virtual conference is over, and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you to all early career researchers who presented their research and for making this a special and inspiring conference. Special thanks go to our science slammers for communicating their research in such a creative and entertaining way. We’re delighted to announce that Michelle Beyer, Jennifer Colbourne and Purbayan Ghosh were awarded the Gwinner Awards for best traditional talk, science slam and poster, respectively.
