Outstanding Student Presentations - NZES 2015 conference
The society makes an annual award to the students who are judged to have presented the best oral papers at the Society’s annual conference. The award comprises:
• One year’s free membership of the society
• A certificate
• A prize of NZ$150
In 2015 we will offer FIVE Outstanding Student Presentation Awards. Students wanting to be considered for either award must submit supporting information (see below) at the time they submit their abstracts through the NZES2015 website (www.nzes2015.org). Only those students who apply for the awards will be considered. The deadline for abstract submission is September 1st.
The following supporting information is required (as a pdf file):
- Title of presentation/poster.
- Your name, the degree you are enrolled in (with enrolment dates) and the department and institute you are studying at.
- A 750 word summary (excluding three key references) that includes the following:
- A statement of why you consider the research covered by your presentation/poster to be important, including reference to three key papers that have helped shape your research (and you must include the full citations for these papers following the format used in NZ Journal of Ecology).
- A summary of what you see the key results from your research being.
- A short discussion on the implications of your research for ecology or conservation (these can be theoretical or practical implications).
- One figure or table from your research that highlights a key finding from your results or a conceptual diagram of a theoretical aspect of your research. Provide a brief (100 word max) summary explaining the figure/table/diagram.
Judging: Assessment of presentations will be weighted 50% on the summary and 50% on the presentation at the conference.
Note: this award does not consider papers presented at the student session of the conference or papers presented by individuals who have been graduates for more than twelve months.
