Hutzinger Student Award

Award Description

The Otto Hutzinger Student Award is 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 honors 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 addressing legacy and emerging halogenated persistent organic pollutants:

A. Sources and analysis.

B. Environmental occurrence, including fate, transport and remediation.

C. Human exposure, toxicology and risk assessment.

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 (i.e. statement from supervising professor or department chairperson to confirm student status or other official documentation).

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 can not 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 sent by e-mail to the Symposium organizers with reference to the paper submission number.

Selection Process

The award committee evaluates student papers and presentations and nominates two students in each scientific category for the Otto Hutzinger Student Award.

The Otto Hutzinger Student Award is provided by the International Advisory Board (IAB) of the Dioxin Symposia.

A committee consisting of internationally recognized researchers will be appointed as judges. The committee will assess the papers submitted by all applicants and will prepare a short-list of candidates. Criteria for evaluation of the student oral or poster presentations will include originality and completeness of the work presented as well as the quality of the paper submitted. The judges will attend the student’s presentation and are also encouraged to interview the students to evaluate the student’s ability to communicate the objectives, methods, results and impact of their research as well as their ability to interact with the scientific audience.

Based on the above, the judges will nominate two students from each of the above three categories to receive the Otto Hutzinger Student Award. These awards (typically six per conference) are presented by the Secretariat of the IAB of the Dioxin Symposium on the final day of the conference during the closing ceremony. The Award consists of a plaque reflecting a local aspect of the current year’s Dioxin Symposium and a cash check.
