Young Researcher Award
To encourage young scientists and engineers working in the field of very high cycle fatigue and its related areas, the Young Researcher Award is being launched during the conference.
The award will be given in recognition of outstanding research work performed by students or those who have completed a terminal degree within the last
five six years. The candidate must make a presentation at the conference as the first author of a paper. The award winner will be chosen by committee members.
