Participants can apply for the following poster prizes.
The ECM31 will establish a panel of independent judges who will assess the posters, and the poster prizes will be presented at the ECM31 Closing Ceremony on Sunday 26 September in lecture room Bulnes (principal) at 18:00.
Two poster prizes to the best posters about nanostructured materials, submitted by a younger scientist (under 35).
This prize is awarded to posters reporting original research in the field of chemical crystallography or the application of crystallographic information to structural chemistry. This includes advances in instrumental, experimental, theoretical or computational techniques that contribute to this field.
Prize winners should be not more than 35 years of age on the 1st of January 2018, except that up to five additional years may be allowed if there has been a significant career break during which the poster presenter was unable to carry out research.
The IUCr Executive Committee is pleased to continue the series of IUCr Journals awards to be presented at meetings of the Regional Associates. A prize will be awarded to the best poster from a graduate or undergraduate student in each of the following three categories: structural biology, structural chemistry and applied crystallography, and will consist of an IUCr Journals open-access voucher, a copy of A Little Dictionary of Crystallography and a certificate.
These prizes (3) are awarded to posters reporting original research in any field of Crystallography presented by young researchers (prize winners should be not more than 35 years of age on the 1st of January 2018; a maximum of two additional years may be allowed if any career break has occurred). The selected posters should necessarily include data obtained with any type of x-ray sources (XRD, XRF, SAXS, etc.) These prizes are addressed to underpin the involvement of young scientists in the field of Crystallography.
Posters presenting biological structures.
Poster about Electron Crystallography.
The prize will be open to participants at all stages of their career and is awarded for posters presenting new developments in crystallographic software and computing including teaching & hardware automation. Winners are selected on the basis of the quality, novelty and anticipated impact of the research, the clarity and quality of the presentation and the career stage of the author.
The Oxford Cryosystems Low Temperature Prize is open to participants at all stages of their career and is awarded to the best poster describing applications of or developments in low temperature crystallography.
Two poster prizes to the best poster submitted by a student and describing macromolecular structure.
Poster about “Crystallography of Functional Materials”.
For excellence in research on structural determination and dynamics of systems, enabled by the emerging new instruments (e.g. XFELs, electron sources, etc.) and new experimental and theoretical methodologies and is open to students (graduate and undergraduate) and post-docs.
