The latest update from the organizers of the upcoming Young Algaeneers Symposium (YAS 2018).
First item is that the abstract submission deadline has been extended to April 20th.
But we have more! We are so happy with the good reception YAS 2018 is having and we want to thank you for that. For that reason, we open two awards categories in order to help you to attend the event!
• The BPS award which will cover your travel expenses from your city of origin to Oban and the way back.
• The EABA award which will cover your registration fee to the conference package
If you are interested to apply to these awards, please send an e-mail to and with your updated CV and a cover letter motivating the impact of your research and (if possible) stating how your current research contributes to the development of novel algae applications/products.
Every applicant should have an abstract submitted and the registration paid at the moment. It is only possible to apply to one of the awards. The application deadline is April 27th.
The resolution will be announced the first week of May and the awarded algaeneers will be invited to give a keynote talk. Prizes will be awarded after YAS.
We also want to mention that there will be prizes for best poster and best flash talk! More information regarding to these prizes will be announced on the first day of the event.
We want to thank the British Phycological Society (BPS) and the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) for their kind support to YAS. Don't forget to check their activities on their website!
