The best undergraduate and graduate student contributions presented at the XVIII B-MRS Meeting (Balneário Camboriú, Brazil, September 22-26, 2019) will receive awards from B-MRS and ACS Publications, the scholarly publisher of the American Chemical Society.
To compete for awards, the author (student) must submit, by July 14, an extended abstract additional to the conventional abstract. Prizes will only be awarded for works presented by students at the symposia of the event, and only if the authors (students) are present at the ceremony, which will be held at the closing session of the event, on September 26.
B-MRS will award up to 46 contributions within the Bernhard Gross Award, that annually distinguishes the best student work from each symposium (up to 1 oral and 1 poster per symposium). To elect the winners, the committee will consider the quality of the extended abstract and presentation, as well as the scientific contribution of the work.
Among the winners of the Bernhard Gross Award, the top five oral and five best posters will receive a cash prize (US $ 500.00) and a certificate from ACS Publications.
