Latin-American Carbon Federation Award – This award is for the best work submitted to the international carbon conference by a young researcher concerning the scientific aspects and/or the technological applications of carbon. The Award consists of a diploma of honor and waived registration for the next Latin-American Workshop on Carbonaceous Materials (TLMC), where they will be honored with a Keynote Lecture. Nominations for the award should be addressed to:
Prof. Dr. Juan Carlos Moreno-Piraján, Universidad de los Andes (Colombia)
President, Latin-American Carbon Federation

The Brian Kelly Award – This annual award was established in 1996 by the British Carbon Group in memory of Brian Kelly, a leading authority on graphite physics. The award is intended as a travel grant for students and early career researchers with up to ten years postdoctoral experience to attend the annual International Carbon Conference. Anyone living or working, at the time of that conference, in the country where the conference is held is not eligible. As a consequence, applications will not be accepted from the USA on this occasion, as the meeting will be held in Lexington, KY. Click here for complete award information.
