IA-FraMCoS created in 2012 a Young Researcher Best Paper Award. This award is granted at each FraMCoS conference to one or more best papers authored by a research scientist under 40 of age. While the paper may be co-authored with senior colleagues, the young researcher must be the first author and should be presenting it at the conference (if the accepted abstract has been submitted with a different ordering of the authors, this can still be modified upon submission of the full paper so that the award application is eligible).
The award selection panel will be chaired by the President-Elect, who will appoint additional members (with a minimum of 2 from the Advisory Board) to help him/her conduct the evaluations.
