Competition for Best Report of a Young Scientist
Traditionally, a competition for Best Report of a Young Scientist takes place during the VSU Conference. Only persons under the age of 35 are allowed to participate, as they should neither be habilitated ones, nor co-authors of a report and are supposed to orally present the report themselves.
A Jury selected among the International Scientific Committee members, present at the Conference, will award the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, and the winners will receive diplomas.
The evaluation criteria are the following: merits of the researched problem and the applied research methodology, demonstration of research skills; quality of the presented material - clear and consistent presentation of the problem and the results, aesthetic layout - colors, size of schemes, and fonts; presentation - adequate explanation of the material, rhetoric, confidence; observing the presentation time; answering questions - adequacy of the answers, conciseness, persuasiveness.
We wish success to the participants in this category!
