Nominations for 2009 Young Investigator Award are now being accepted. The
prize, established in 2007, is awarded each year to an outstanding visual
scientist who has received an advanced degree within the past 10 years.
(The nominee's degree must be no earlier than the calendar year 10 years
prior to receiving the award. For the upcoming 2009 award, the degree must
be in 1999 or later.)


Nominations must be made by a VSS member and will be reviewed by the Young
Investigator Award Committee, consisting of five established visual
scientists selected from VSS membership. Members of the Award Committee
cannot serve as nominators. 


The Award Committee will select the winner by March 16, and the prize, which
includes an honorarium, will be presented at the 2009 VSS meeting in Naples.


The nominations should include: 


* A letter of recommendation with a detailed description of the scientific
contributions of the nominee.   

* A curriculum vitae of the nominee.


Please note, while previously considered nominees may be re-nominated, a new
nomination is required (assuming the nominee is still eligible).


Nominations for the 2009 Young Investigator Award should be submitted by
email to Shauney Wilson ( <mailto:shauneywilson at visionsciences.org>
