The Global Young Scientists Summit (GYSS) is an annual multi-disciplinary summit that brings together eminent scientific minds and young scientists to foster exchange of ideas among scientists of different generations, cultures and disciplines. The summit will feature talks from Nobel Laureates, distinguished scientists, as well as mathematicians.
Starting this September 2019, the GYSS will be accepting nominations through a web-based system for the Summit to be held on 14-17 January 2020.
- Currently an undergraduate, master’s and doctoral, and young postdoctoral student;
- Not older than 35 years of age at the time of the summit;
- With genuine interest in science and research;
- Shows strong commitment to their principal field of studies and to interdisciplinary work;
- Receive the endorsement of an organization that was invited to provide nominees OR receive strong support of their application by their head of department and/or by internationally renowned scientists, through a letter of recommendation;
- Fluent in English to actively participate in discussions;
- Has not participated in previous Global Young Scientists Summits; and
- Does not have a permanent position (scientist with permanent positions, in particular on the professor level, will not be admitted to the Summit).
The nomination process is web-based. Representatives from invited organizations will be provided with login credentials. Representatives will be asked to provide information on each nominee, including the nominee’s name, email address and institution. Representatives are not required to provide details CVs or academic track records of the nominees. Upon submission through the system, nominees will be informed to submit further details. Only nominees who successfully submit all required information will be considered. Open applicants (i.e. those applying without the endorsement of an invited organization) can also apply, but will be required to submit an additional letter of recommendation from the applicant’s head of department or an internationally renowned scientist.
Nominees will be informed of the status of their applications. Successful nominees will be required to provide further information, such as flight details, poster submissions and their choice of any optional or parallel sessions to attend.
