Conference >  Poster and Young researcher prize session
The Posters and Young Researcher Prize Talks from abstract sessions aim at presenting the research works of young PhD and/or fellows to support and boost research in the field of vascular biomaterials.
Since 1999, the ESVB scientific committee has started the «Young Researcher Prize» to recognize innovative and outstanding research work of young researchers early in their careers, in the field of vascular biomaterials.

To encourage even more the young researchers to attend our symposium, the ESVB organization is offering a 200€ cashback on all-inclusive package on site for trainees who have a selected abstract and do not have any financial support. A proof of payment will be requested at the event.

The abstract submission is open to vascular trainees (MSc, PhD, Students) and scientific researchers in the field of biomaterial and vascular surgery who should be less than 35 years old.
• The limited oral presentation selected for YRP session will be 8.
• The limited poster selected for poster session will be 25.
• The abstracts will be selected in a blinded-fashion.
• Abstract submission opens: May 1, 2017.
Abstract submission closes: July 31, 2017.
• Review period: August 1 – August 10, 2017.
• Notification of acceptance: August 15, 2017.
