Eligibility and procedure

The prize winner must be the speaker of the presentation (oral or poster).

Letters of application from the interested participants are accepted by the organizing committee, on the address icpam@uaic.ro, until the beginning of the conference. The letter must specify the age of the applicant, her/his current status (student, PhD student, researcher, etc.), as well as a statement, according to which the paper has not been published in any journal or presented in any other Conference/ Seminar/ Symposium or submitted for consideration of any award.
