Best Junior Presentation Award
Continuing a tradition that started in 1996, the Benelux meeting will close with the announcement of the winner of the Best Junior Presentation Award. This award is given for the best presentation given at the meeting by a junior researcher (i.e., someone working towards the PhD degree). The award is specifically given for quality of presentation rather than quality of research, which is judged in a different way. At the meeting, the chair of each session will ask three volunteers in the audience to fill out an evaluation form. After the session, the evaluation forms will be collected by the Prize Commissioners who will then compute a ranking. The winner will be announced on Thursday, March 26, 2015, immediately after the final lectures of the meeting. The winner is the candidate with the highest evaluation score among all candidates present at the prize ceremony. He or she will be presented the award, which consists of a trophy that may be kept for one year, and also a certificate. He or she will give the winning presentation once more at the end of the ceremony. The evaluation forms of each presentation will be returned to the junior researcher who gave the presentation.
