Fundamental Discoveries in Heterogeneous Catalysis (HC) Focus Topic

The Focus Topic on Fundamental Discoveries in Heterogeneous Catalysis (HC) announces The Surface Science Top Presentation Award, a competitive award that will be given to the best student/postdoc presentation in the Heterogeneous Catalysis Focus Topic sessions at the Annual Symposium. The awardee will be announced at the end of the final HC Focus Topic session and will receive an award certificate and prize money of $500.  All student and postdoctoral contributions are automatically entered in the pool of contenders for the award. The student presentations are judged based on the scientific merit of the presented work, the presentation, and the post-presentation discussion. The award committee consists of members of the HC committee and other senior members of the community present during the meeting.  The HC Focus Topic Committee gratefully acknowledges the Surface Science, an Elsevier journal, for sponsoring the awards. This award will be offered for the first time at the AVS64.
