Young Scientist Forum



In conjunction with the 7th AOMSC, the 7th AOMSC Young Scientist Forum (YSF) will be held in Singapore on the 10th of December, 2017. Keeping with the AOMSC tradition, this YSF will continue to be an informal platform for encouraging interaction and scientific exchange among young talented MS researchers in the Asia Oceania region. This one-day event will feature three sessions for selected young scientists to showcase their cutting-edge research on MS-related topics, as well as a career development forum where YSF advisors will share personal experiences and tips on their career progression. All young scientists attending the AOMSC are strongly encouraged to register for the YSF and benefit from this great opportunity to network and draw inspiration for their successful scientific careers.

Registration for the YSF is free; however all participants must be registered with abstracts submitted for the main AOMSC. Please register for the YSF through the AOMSC registration. Abstract submission is now closed.

The YSF is open to all young MS researchers, including young investigators (within first two years of position), postdoctoral researchers (or equivalent positions), students, and research associates (with more than 2 years of MS experience).

Proof of eligibility must be submitted in the registration process.
