Over the past two years, we have had other things to worry about. However, we should not let this pandemic prevent us from sharing our knowledge and hard work. We are still eager to hear about your groundbreaking ideas, unconventional, experimental setups, or innovative approaches to data collection. The winner will get funds to attend and present their work at one of the conferences of their choice (and that applies to the conferences that will be taking place in 2022). Just fill out the form below, describe your work in a short abstract (up to 500 words), and hit the "Send your application" button. Applications are due by March 10, 2022.

1. About you

* Required field

2. About your work

Please summarize your work in a short abstract. Make sure your submission answers the following questions: 

  • What was done, where, and why?
  • What was the innovative step?
  • What instrumentation was used?
  • Who are the collaborators?
  • Which obstacles did you overcome?
  • What would make the work easier and more successful?
  • What are the next steps?
  • References (publications) if any.

3. About the conference of your choice

Although attending a conference is the least of our priorities now, let us dream or go down memory lane for the sake of people who have invested a huge amount of work in organizing (and cancelling) these events.

Let us know where you would like to present your work. 

Would you like your work to be shared on DECTRIS website as a Success Story?**
