    Presentation Preference
    Authors must indicate their preferred type of presentation. Please note that the final decision on the presentation format will be made by the Program Committee.

    Young Investigator Award

    Scientists who want to compete in the Young Investigator Competition must be under the age of 35 (proof or letter from supervisor will be requested). Anybody interested and qualifying should submit his/her abstract under the section “Young Investigator“. Abstracts will be pre-sorted and pre-ranked by the Young Investigator Award committee and the best abstracts chosen for oral communication.  In the event that more Young Investigator Award abstracts are submitted than oral communication spots available, only the top ranked will be chosen for an oral presentation, the others will be invited to show a poster (but will not be considered for a prize). During the meeting, the Young Investigator Award committee will rank the quality of the talks and produce a final listing. The winner will be announced on the final day of the meeting. A money price will be awarded (amount to be determined).

    Poster Awards

    All Scientists presenting a poster can compete in the competition for two FEBS Letters Poster Prizes (Certificate and 200,- € cash reward). Moreover, winners will receive an acknowledgement on the website of the publishing platform for the four journals owned by the not-for-profit Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS).
