The papers and presentations will be reviewed at least two reviewers and the best ones will be awarded by the CONFENIS Award and by the SEFBIS Award. The works of PhD students and the young scientists (max 35 Years of age) will be evaluated in a separated group, and they can get the special PhD Award.
