USCHI TSCHABITSCHER PRIZE FOR YOUNG NEUROLOGISTS
For the sixth time, a tournament for young neurologists will take place at an EFNS Congress. The tournament will be carried out in two groups, one on clinical related research, and one on basic neurological science.
Neurologists in training not older than 35 years are entitled to participate. When submitting an abstract of which they are the first author, candidates must state that they wish to participate in the tournament and select the group (clinical/basic). They must send by mail a confirmation written by the head of the candidate’s department stating the age of the candidate, his/her training and that the abstract is the personal work of the candidate.
Selection of candidates:
The Congress Programme Committee will select 6 candidates for each tournament group on the basis of the contents of the abstracts submitted. The clinical subjects should be received from authors who all work in Europe and thus carry out their projects in Europe. For the basic science session, clinical relevance will be weighted.
The Congress Programme Committee reserves the right to assign in which session the presentation will take place.
Candidates selected for the tournament will receive a bursary consisting of free registration to the Congress, up to four nights hotel accommodation, and a travel grant.
Each selected candidate is allotted 10 minutes for presentation of his/her paper plus five minutes for discussion with the jury.
Members of the Congress Programme, the Scientific and the Teaching Course Committees.
Candidates will be judged not only on the scientific value of the work presented, but also on the quality of the oral presentation and the way the candidate responds to the questions of the jury.
The winner of each group will receive the Uschi Tschabitscher Prize for Young Neurologists consisting of: Free registration at the 13th EFNS Congress in Florence, September 12-15, 2009, up to four nights hotel accommodation, a travel grant, as well as € 1,000. The prize is not transferable and participation in the 13th Congress of the EFNS will not be paid off in cash.
