Time: 10:00 - 12:00

Location: Room Estrel A/B

The contest and the session were prepared by Nathalie Touze-Foltz, France, chair of the operational task force in charge of mentoring the Young Members Committee of IGS.

The additional members of the jury for the contest representing the regions in which IGS is present are:

More than 40 papers submitted to this contest were evaluated by an international review panel. Based on the marks obtained by each paper, and with the intention to ensure a good balance between candidates from the various regions where the IGS is present, the jury selected 10 papers and presenters.
Based on the technical content and the quality of the presentation the jury will select the winner of the contest. The winner will be announced at the General Assembly of IGS on Wednesday, 24 September 2014, 16:30 - 18:00.
