There will be four finalists, and for each the registration and accommodation costs will be waived and a personal check of 250 USD will be issued. The finalists will present their work in a special section of the plenary sessions.
Entrants for the EIA competition should be either students or postdoctoral fellows (postdocs or clinical fellows with over 6 years experience are not eligible for the competition).
Admission to the EIA competition is by submission of an abstract and a curriculum vitae by the abstract deadline. In the event that an entrant is not selected as an EIA finalist, the abstract will still be considered for presentation as a regular communication at the meeting and for publication as part of the meeting proceedings.
Previous winners of the "William C. Stanley" Early Investigator Award (or its precursor, termed "Early Investigator Commendation") are not eligible for this competition.
