Young scholar award DCM2018

Diamond and Carbon Materials Young Scholar Award
The International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials “Young Scholar Award” recognizes predoctoral researchers in the early stage of their career and wishes to offer them an opportunity to highlight their recent results on an international stage through a combination of oral and poster presentations.

The six finalists for the DCM2018 Young Scholar Award are:

Saniya Alwani, University of Saskatchewan, Canada
Nanodiamonds for gene delivery: chemical design and biological interaction studies

A. Jamróz, Warsaw University, Poland
Ordering and electronic structure of graphene doped with boron and nitrogen - Monte Carlo and Tight Binding study

S.A. MalykhinLomonosov Moscow State University, Russia & University of Eastern Finland, Finland
Controlled formation of colour centres in single crystal diamond needles

Cédric Masante, Université Grenoble Alpes, France        
Diamond Deep Depletion Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (D3MOSFET) for power electronics

Kosuke Mizuno, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan        
Wide field diamond magnetometry with millihertz frequency resolution and nanotesla magnetic sensitivity

Yosuke Sasama, National Institute for Materials Science & University of Tsukuba, Japan    
High mobility diamond field effect transistor with a monocrystalline h-BN gate dielectric

Evaluation
The evaluation will be done in two different steps.

First, all abstracts and related letters of recommendation will be judged by the Young Scholar Award Selection Committee based on scientific novelty and quality. Out of all submissions, 4 to 6 applications will be selected. The abstracts of these applicants will be accepted for ORAL presentation during DCM2018. Together with a note earmarking them as Young Scholar Award abstracts, each of them will be placed in a session of the oral programme based on the topic of each individual abstract. (Hence, there will NOT be a separate Young Scholar Award session.)

In addition to the oral presentation, all of the shortlisted applicants will be asked to prepare a poster on the same subject of the abstract. These posters will be placed together and highlighted during the first poster session on Monday afternoon. This will provide the Young Scholar Award Selection Committee ample opportunity to evaluate the quality of the posters, and to interact with their respective presenters. This will then serve as the base to select the Gold and the Silver Award winners.

Awards
In addition to the highlighting of their work in the oral and poster programmes:

  • The Gold Young Scholar Award winner will receive a cash prize of 250 Euros, an Award certificate, and a Conference Dinner ticket.
  • The Silver Young Scholar Award winner will receive an Award certificate, and a Conference Dinner ticket.
