Okinawa, JAPAN December 1 - 4, 2019

Awards and Scholarships


Awards will be given for the outstanding papers and posters selected from the extended abstracts and posters, respectively.


Notification of Scholarship Recipients has been announced by email. If you don't know it, please contact at the registration desk.

It is generally expected that the contact authors of extended abstracts scheduled for presentation will secure their own travel funding for attending the symposium. Scholarships will be awarded to some young researchers, who are 40 years old or younger, at the Banquet on 2 December 2019 (the second day of YSRM2019&REIF2019) for assistance in attending the symposium.

Types of Scholarships

Currently, the scholarship selection committee of YSRM2019&REIF2019 is offering two different scholarships.
Scholarship A: Decent support (Partial airfare/accommodation and registration fee)
Scholarship B: Modest support (Registration fee and a little more)

Each scholarship is granted to the contact author for a particular paper. Scholarships are non-transferable. Only the granted amount will be paid out to the awarded contact author personally at the Banquet of YSRM2019&REIF2019.

If the paper is withdrawn before the symposium or if for any reason the paper is not presented at the symposium, even if the author who has been awarded the scholarship is present at the symposium, the award must be returned.

- be age 40 or younger
(The nominees should be persons who were born on or after 1 December 1979. Japanese nominees should be students.)
