CERE 2020 Early Career Researcher Poster Award

This year at the CERE 2020 conference, we are recognising excellence in early career emotion researchers. Awards play a crucial role in helping young outstanding researchers achieve recognition, increase chances for competitive funding and thus improve career opportunities outside their established networks. We invite early career researchers to put forward their work in poster form for consideration of the poster award (details below).

Award

The recipient of this award will receive a certificate 

Eligibility

Applicants must be either current students, recent graduates (within a year of the conference) or presenting thesis work. Eligible posters must present the applicant’s work, on which they are first author, and the work must not already be published, in press, or presented at another conference. A signed letter from the advisor affirming that the poster represents the applicant’s work needs to be provided. Applicants must send this letter by email to: carmengil@fase20.com before submission deadline.

Submission

Applicants will be able to indicate their desire to be considered for the poster award upon abstracts registration through the conference website. Submissions will be judged by a panel of senior and young emotion researchers during the conference.
