The Scientific Committee has introduced a new award for presentations at the EFNS Congress. All free presentations (short communications, posters) selected for presentation at the 2009 Congress of the EFNS will automatically take part in the selection of an Investigator Award. The EFNS Scientist Panels (currently 28, in all fields of neurology) will be responsible for the evaluation process (independent from other awards and the programme organisation). The award for each selected presentation will be € 500, a diploma, and the winners will be announced in the European Journal of Neurology and the EFNS Newsletter. The award will be given to the first author who needs to be the person to present the work at the congress.
A presentation can only be the winner of one scientist panel investigator award. Notification about the Investigator Award will be sent within four weeks after the congress.
