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, young scientists may self-nominate themselves for the Award of Best Oral Presentation or Best Poster Presentation upon submission of their abstract.

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 presentation of the Awards will take place during the closing ceremony on the second day of the symposium.
