Otto Hutzinger Award

The Otto Hutzinger Student Awards are presented for outstanding student presentations at the annual Dioxin Symposium to acknowledge their scientific contribution to the field of halogenated persistent organic pollutants. This award honours Professor Otto Hutzinger as the founder of the Dioxin Symposia and his continuing interest as a teacher and researcher committed to moving science forward and to stimulating young students and the next generation of researchers. Six awards will be granted to two students in each of the following three categories:

A. Sources and analysis of legacy and emerging POPs

B. Environmental occurrence of halogenated persistent organic pollutants

C. Human exposure, toxicology and risk assessment of POPs

■Application Guidelines

To be eligible for an Otto Hutzinger Student Award, a student must meet all of the listed criteria

1. The applicant must be a student (undergraduate or graduate) at the time of the submission/deadline for submission. Documentation of student status must be provided.

2. The student must submit a full 4-page paper using the guidelines established by the meeting organizers and described on the meeting website. The short paper must include the following sections: Title, Authors and Affiliations, Introduction, Methods and Materials, Results and Discussion (or a combined Results and Discussion Section), References, Figures and/or Tables. Students whose paper or abstract do not meet these guidelines will not be considered.

3. The student applicant must be the first author (identified by an asterisk or underlined) of the submitted research paper and must be the one who presents the work as an oral or poster presentation at the Symposium. Since this award is specifically directed toward assessment of the contributions and work of the student applicant, the paper cannot contain more than four additional co-authors.

All of the above must be provided when submitting the 4-page paper. Scanned copies of the documentation for student status should be uploaded to the abstract submission site.
