The results will be communicated as soon as possible (around begin-May).



We are aware that lots of conferences are already or will be soon cancelled due to the exceptional situation related to the COVID19. We may receive less applications this year. For the awards to remain proper "awards", the number of awards distributed will thus be adapted in relation to the number of applications.

Therefore, please read the following:

- Don't apply for awards for conferences that are already cancelled. Your application won't be taken into account. You are welcome to apply next year.

- If you don't know if your conference will take place or not, you are welcome to apply. In principle, if the conference get cancelled before May 1st, then we will cancel your application. If not, your application is still valid.

- If your application is selected by the Jury for an award, and the conference get cancelled after May 1st, 2020, you will be contacted personnaly by the SCNAT to find alternatives for replacement.

We kindly appreciate if you can inform us of conferences cancellation by writing at .
