The Organizing Committee of a Congress will arrange to make ten Young Author Awards for the ten most outstanding papers presented at the Congress in which the major author is a person less than 35 years of age at the date of the Congress.

The Award will be a Scroll signed by the Chairman and may, at the discretion of the Organizing Committee, be accompanied by a prize.

The Committee is encouraged to use the members of the Council as adjudicators of the papers being considered for this award.

The Organizing Committee should ensure that it is very clear to all authors submitting papers for the Congress that they may, if eligible, indicate that they wish their paper to be considered for such an award.

In this case the author should submit a document signed by a senior colleague confirming that the author is eligible in terms of the age criterion and is the major author of the paper.

This Committee may choose not to make a Young Author Award.

The Award may be made only once to any person and no such Award will be made posthumously.
