Application and Procedure
- The two best-scored abstracts (after the blinded review process) from each abstract category fulfilling the MCA criteria are selected. In addition to that, the ten best-scored abstracts (out of all submissions) will be added – if not already among the chosen ones.
- Those abstracts will be again blinded and rated by the EANM Scientific Programme Council.
- The best 10-rated abstracts will be once more reviewed (again blinded) by international peer reviewers*.
*The EANM Board will suggest at least ten peer reviewers who are neither linked to any of the abstracts, mentioned authors, nor the institutions involved.
- The EANM office will notify the authors of the top 3 submissions, requesting a portrait picture, a 2-slides-presentation and their onsite presence at the respective Award Ceremony.
- The Award is bestowed during the EANM Congress by the EANM President. The decision is not open to appeal or legal action.
NB: The EANM Board is not involved in any selection process at any time, and all scores will be given during the three rating stages to anonymised abstracts.
