VSS is pleased to announce that nominations for the 2010 Young Investigator
Award are now open. 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 2010
award, the degree must be in 2000 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 2010 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 2010 Young Investigator Award should be submitted by
email to Shauney Wilson (shauneywilson at visionsciences.org).

Deadline for receipt of nominations: Friday, January 15, 2010
