The CIRIR community wishes to take advantage of the ICF-CIRIR 2022 for initiating new collaborations, for motivating bright students to make career in our fields, and for boosting early careers students in our fields..

Thanks to the support of various sources that will be duly acknowledged in the final program of the ICF-CIRIR 2022 and whose representants will be honored at the public opening ceremony of the event, the CIRIR is proud to announce the CIRIR Career Development Award.

The Award is open to outstanding undergraduate, graduate students, and young postdocs who have submitted an abstract for presentation at ICF-CIRIR 2022 as a first author. We especially encourage applications from under-represented geographic locations (e.g., low/middle-income countries), and we especially encourage applications from women from any geographic locations.

A grant of 600 Euro (for students from France), and up to 1200 Euro (for international students) will be awarded to successful applicants to help cover travel expenses and registration fees.

Selected award recipients will be expected to provide approximately four hours of volunteer service during the conference. The assigned duties may include, e.g., distributing registration materials, restocking conference materials and supplies, helping with clean up and resetting of the conference areas, helping with security and logistics during the sessions, meals, and morning activities (if any), and during the various transportations of delegates and evening events.

The CIRIR student volunteer coordinator will contact awardees to schedule specific volunteer times at a later date. Submission of an application implies that the applicant has read and agrees to comply with these terms.
