Every year the ISHG will give three Young Scientist Awards (YSA) in the field of Human Genetics. As a mark of recognition, the best three works in order of merit will be selected subject to presentation and defense of their work. The three best candidates will be awarded with a medal, certificate and cash prize as detailed below. All short listed papers will receive waiver for registration, accommodation and travel support will be provided by 3Tier AC via the shortest route. The award will be subject to oral presentation in the YSA session during the annual ISHG meeting. Awards will be declared and presented during the same meeting.
The candidate must not have completed 35 years of age by 31st December of the preceding year or 3 months prior to the conference whichever is later. A certificate showing proof of age must accompany the paper.
Award carries a medal, certificate, registration waiver, accommodation waiver, travel waiver and prize money of Rs. 5000, 3000 and 2000 in the order of merit. ISHG will provide 3 Tier AC fare by the shortest route.
The candidate should be a member of ISHG. If the candidate is not a member he/she can apply alongwith the submission of his YSA application.
Six copies of (i) completed application from; (ii) extended abstract (1000 words); and (iii) a full length paper should reach the Secretary, ISHG, by 31st January 2016.
The paper submitted must be the result of sole/major work done by the candidate. This can be authenticated by the candidate's claim for being the first author of the paper. A letter from the mentor should support this claim. If the work is a part of Doctoral thesis, a certificate from the guide that the candidate is mainly responsible for the findings and interpretation, attested to and countersigned as above, must accompany the paper. Simple review papers, without any attempt at synthesizing and interpretation, are not acceptable. Kindly submit the application form in the format given below.
Among the submitted papers, a maximum of 9 best papers in order of merit will be selected for presentation in the Annual ISHG meeting. Selection will be done by a screening committee duly constituted by the ISHG President and Secretary.
The committee of experts evaluating the oral presentation of YSA will be constituted by ISHG EC and not by the local organizing committee. Care will be taken to nominate experts who have no conflict of interest with any of the candidates. In case, the candidate happens to be his/her student or from the same institute, the expert will remain a non-voting member for this special circumstance. A special expert will be nominated for such circumstances.
Candidates, recommended for consideration for the awards, are required to present their papers at the Annual Meeting of the Society. The presentation is for 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion.
If a submitted abstract is not selected as one among top nine submissions in order of merit, it might be allowed for presentation as a poster, subject to recommendations of the screening committee.
The decision of the Governing Council regarding the Awards is final.
The award will be presented during the concluding ceremony of the Annual meeting of ISHG.
