The YBMRS Awards for the best oral communication and the best poster presentation were introduced at the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the YBMRS.

The Scientific Committee has agreed to make the YBMRS awards a recurring aspect of the meeting series. As a result, all oral communications and poster presentations that will be submitted by young scientists for the 2018 event are automatically considered for the competition. All senior scientists are excluded from these prizes.

Each YBMRS Award consists of an official certificate and the possibility to obtain financial support to enable registration for a major international conference where the awarded work can be presented to an international audience.

The Awards presentation will take place during the closing ceremony on Friday afternoon.
