The M&M meeting's co-sponsoring societies confer competitively judged awards at the meeting.
MSA Student Poster Awards
We believe poster presentations are an excellent format for all participants to engage in intensive discussion with other researchers in the field. To especially encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity and submit papers for poster presentation, MSA provides cash awards* to the most outstanding student posters (first author) each day (up to one in each of three categories). *Cash awards are presented via ACH/wire transfer.
MAS Best Paper Awards
MAS annually confers awards for papers presented at the M&M meeting deemed to be best in four categories. Each comes with a cash award generously provided by MAS Sustaining Members.
Diatome Poster Awards
All posters illustrating the use of diamond-knife ultramicrotomy are eligible. Prizes include cash and Swiss watches.
