The International Management Committee (IMC) of ISVEE is glad to call for nominations for ISVEE awards 2018. During the ISVEE Business meeting of 22 August 2012, Roger Morris proposed to install ISVEE awards, and the general committee decided that the proposal should be elaborated further by the IMC and Roger Morris. As a result, we now call for nominations for each of the following awards:
Each award shall consist of a medal and a contribution to the recipient’s travel to ISVEE.
All three awards are funded by the Roger Morris Sub-Trust of the Masseyst University Foundation.
Nominations shall consist of a letter of support from an individual who has attended at least one previous ISVEE, the CV of the nominee and a maximum of one additional letter of support.
Nominations shall be submitted by February 1st 2018 to the chairperson of the IMC, Alfredo Dajer, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selection of the recipients will be carried out by the IMC and will be completed by March 1st 2018, with the winners notified shortly after. The identity of the recipients shall remain confidential until the presentation of the award at ISVEE 2018. Nominations for the Roger Morris and Peter Ellis ISVEE award that are not selected in 2015 will again be considered for the award at ISVEE 2018.
