Student prizes

Student poster and presentation competitions are open to current students and recent students, awarded your degree no earlier than July 1, 2019, excluding past competition winners. If you are participating in our competition for the first time, you will receive our Conference merchandise package as a gift. It includes our branded T-shirt, a weekly planner for your goals, and a logo pen. If it is your second or third time of participation in our event, you will be granted monthly access to "write my essay" service allowing you to boost your writing skills. There, you will get a personal essay writer who will handle your requests on how to improve your papers, write cover letters, and personal statements, etc.
Also, you will be able to upload your previous best ecological essay and get feedback on its quality. This offer was thought to help you improve your writing and win our competition. Getting advice on your scholarship essay can be useful as well, especially if you are currently seeking college admission. Do not hesitate to contact your writer if you need any assistance with admission documents’ preparation: they will consult you on how to fill out all applications, supplemental documents, and answer short essay questions.
If you need any editing or proofreading service, it can also be done through our partnering website. Just submit abstract for essay to the writer, and wait until they do the job. Feel free to ask questions at this time via the chat window: the writers are ready to give you any clarifications on writing and editing 24/7.
To make use of this offer, please register for our Conference and submit a paper to our committee. After that, you will be sent a link redirecting you to the writing service website. You will need to sign up for a free account there to get the professional writer’s help. Further instructions will be seen on your profile.

You may submit joint work with colleagues provided that the student presents the work and has made a major contribution to the research. All entrants must submit their abstract before the regular submission deadline and enter the competition when the abstract is submitted. Separate competitions will be held for oral presentations and for posters, and abstracts may be submitted to either competition. To remain in the competition, submitted abstracts must be accepted by the scientific committee. Students who submit abstracts for oral presentations that are accepted as posters will be automatically switched to the poster competition. All entrants must attend the conference and are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. 

Accepted posters and presentations will be included in an appropriate place of the conference program and evaluated by a subset of the plenary speakers. Judging criteria for both competitions will include the technical contribution, innovation, and the quality of the presentation. Competition winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on the final day of the conference. 

Any inquiries about the competitions may be sent to the co-chairs of the Student Competition committee, Simon Bonner () and Philip Dixon ()
