Applied Surface Science
The Applied Surface Science Division
is offering student awards. Students who would like to compete for the awards need to submit an abstract for a poster or talk to be presented during any of the ASSD sessions. Presentation during an ASSD sponsored session is required for eligibility.
If the ASSD has more than three applicants for the student award, the ASSD Student Award Committee Chair may ask the student candidates to submit an extended abstract, which will be used to down select the number of finalists to three. The three award finalists will present a “capsule” (3-slide, 5-minute) presentation to the judges during the Tuesday night ASSD Business Meeting. The winner will be selected based upon presentation skills, scientific merit and originality of their work. The awards consist of three cash prizes totaling up to $1,000. The student that wins the best presentation award will be reimbursed for meeting registration at the student rate for the following year's AVS meeting and ASSD will ask the award winner to give a talk in a session co-sponsored by ASSD. Students wishing to participate in the competition should complete the application on the awards submission site and submit an abstract by May 1, 2017
