Since then, CIRMS strongly encourages and supports the participation of students and young researchers at the annual meeting and the presentation of their research during the working group sessions or as posters.

This year, CIRMS will proudly continue its tradition in supporting outstanding young investigators to attend and present their work at the 27th CIRMS 2019 meeting at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, by offering awards to a selected number of applicants that submit their essays by the deadline.

This award consists of coverage of their conference registration fee. Winners will also receive one year’s complimentary membership in CIRMS.
