ISNSCE Awards
The ISNSCE grants several awards to encourage and publicize accomplishment in the fields of nanoscale science and technology. These awards are announced at the two conferences. The awards are:
  • The ISNSCE Nanoscience Prize which is presented at the Foundations of Nanoscience (FNANO) conference each April. The Nanoscience prize is given every year to recognize and encourage outstanding research in all areas of nanoscience. It may be awarded for theory, experiment, modelling, or applications of nanoscience to any field of study, including but not limited to biology, chemistry, materials science, physics or computation. The winner of the prize receives $1000 and is invited to give the keynote lecture at Foundations of Nanoscience (FNANO) The Award has been granted annually since 2007.
  • The Tulip Award in DNA Computing which is presented at the DNA Computing conference each June. This Award recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of Biomolecular Computing and Molecular Programming. The Award has been granted annually since 2001.
  • The Robert Dirks Molecular Programming Prize recognizes exceptional early-career achievement by a researcher working in any area of molecular programming, whether theory, experiment, computation, or a combination thereof.
  • The Student Awards which are presented at the DNA Computing conference each June. These awards are:
    • The Best Paper Award.
