One more month to apply for TRA Visions 2018 Young Researcher competition

The deadline for registration and final submission to the TRA VISIONS 2018 Young Researchers competition has been extended to the end of October 2017 so you still have one more month to submit your innovative project!

However, the deadline for the Senior Research competition has now closed with a record number of submissions thanks to the ability for participants to submit their entries at the same time as theirs abstracts for the TRA2018 programme.

Following the closing date, the ideas for the Young Researchers competition will be evaluated between November 2017 and April 2018 and a judging panel will determine the top three ideas per mode. A short video will also be produced for each winning mode and the ideas published in a book that will be distributed at TRA2018 itself. The winners will also prepare posters which will present their ideas and be displayed in a TRA VISIONS 2018 poster area located close to the main plenary and strategic session rooms.

Meanwhile, the planning for the award ceremony is progressing with the Young Researcher awards due to be presented at the end of the Opening Session of TRA2018 on Monday 16th April 2018 and the Senior Researcher award to be made during the gala dinner in the spectacular Vienna town hall on the evening of Tuesday 17th April 2018.
