An award given for young-to-mid-career scientists, the prize recognizes outstanding contributions to the understanding and development of miniaturized systems. Sponsored by Lab on a Chip, Dolomite, and Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS).
Springer Nature Test of Time Award
The Microsystems & Nanoengineering/Springer Nature Test of Time Award recognizes research that was presented at MicroTAS within the last 10-15 years that is still impacting today's research in the filed of microfluidics.
NIST and Lab on a Chip - Art in Science Award
To draw attention to the aesthetic value in scientific illustrations while still conveying scientific merit, the MicroTAS Conference features an award titled, "Under the Looking Glass: Art from the World of Small Science" sponsored by NIST and Lab on a Chip. Applications are encouraged from any person attending the MicroTAS Conference and the winner will be selected by a panel of senior scientists in the field of MicroTAS.
Biomicrofluidics Best Paper Award
The Biomicrofluidics Best Paper Award, sponsored by AIP Publishing, is an award given to recognize excellence in the proceedings submitted to the MicroTAS Conference by PhD students and young researchers. This year, a review committee will select the three best papers from the submitted abstracts. The winners will be announced and recognized at the MicroTAS meeting during the Award Ceremony.
Elsevier Sensors and Actuators B. Chemical-MicroTAS Best Paper Award
The Best Paper Award, sponsored by Elsevier, is an award given to recognize excellence in the proceedings submitted to the MicroTAS Conference by PhD students and young researchers. This year, a review committee will select the three best papers from the submitted abstracts. The winners will be announced and recognized at the MicroTAS meeting during the Award Ceremony.
Springer Nature Best Oral Award
The Microsystems & Nanoengineering/Springer Nature Best Oral Award is an award to recognize excellence in Oral presentation given at the MicroTAS Conference by Ph.D. students and young researchers. This year, a review committee will select the 4 best oral presentations from the submitted papers. The winners will be announced and recognized at the MicroTAS meeting during the Award Ceremony.
Lab on a Chip - Widmer Poster Award
The Widmer Poster Award Competition sponsored by Lab on a Chip is an award given to recognize excellence amongst the annual MicroTAS Conference poster presenters. This year, a review committee will select the overall best poster from the virtual poster session and all posters will be reviewed for this honor. The winner and award will be announced at the MicroTAS virtual meeting.
CHEMINAS - Young Researcher Poster Award
The Young Researcher Poster Award Competition sponsored by The Society for Chemistry and Micro-Nano Systems (CHEMINAS) to recognize excellence among its participants. A select group of poster judges will select, on a daily basis, the best presented posters from the poster session. The winners and awards will be announced during the Awards Ceremony at the MicroTAS Conference.
IMT Masken und Teilungen AG - Microfluidics on Glass Poster Award
To be relevant to the spirit and intent of this Microfluidics on Glass Award, the advancement considered must address at least one
of the following:
CBMS Researcher Grant
- Use glass as a substrate material for a nano/microfluidic device where the unique optical, electrical, or surface properties of glass provide a profound advantage,
- Demonstrate novel biosensing capabilities,
- Exhibit hybridisation of glass with other materials (composites),
- Establish design for manufacturability with materials and processes that have the potential to be scaled up through transfer to industry.
The Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS) is offering travel support, on a competitive basis, for attending the upcoming MicroTAS Conference. Students and young researchers (≤ 3 years after obtaining their PhD degree) who have been successful in being accepted for an oral or poster presentation at the upcoming MicroTAS conference are eligible to apply (previous recipients are re-eligible three years after they have received the grant). A total of 48 stipends will be granted, intended to offset travel and registration costs. The selection process strives to award highly scored contributions, while also giving consideration to geographical and topical balance, among other criteria.
