"Ed Nelson Award"
The founding president of TID was Ed Nelson. To honor his efforts to create ISPTID, at each conference an "Ed Nelson Award" is proudly given to the best Young Researcher under the age of 40. The award recipient will be selected by the conference's Scientific Committee based on the quality of his/her submitted and presented abstract.
An award ceremony will take place during the closing plenary. The awarded researcher will recieve a commemorative medal and a full waiver for the registration of the next TID Conference which will be held in Tokyo, Japan in 2019.
