An award, the "Paul Drude Medal", will be given to a young scientist for exceptional contributions to the field of ellipsometry. In addition to an abstract for an oral presentation, in order to apply for the Paul Drude Medal, the young scientists are required to submit a one page CV. The application is done in the same portal of the abstract submission.
The deadline for application is the same as the application for an oral or poster contribution.
Further prizes will be awarded for best poster contributions.
