In a half-day session of the EANA 2015 workshop around ten PhD students will get the opportunity to introduce themselves and their research to other PhD students and interested conference participants.
The student contest "Space Factor" gives young scientists a great forum to connect with other PhD students, to learn from them, to exchange thoughts, to gain new insights and ideas, and to establish new contacts and maybe even cooperation.

An interdisciplinary committee board will judge the contributions of all participating PhD students and several awards will be granted. The EANA president Prof. Dr. Frances Westall will be solemnly present the winners of the awards during the EANA closing ceremony.

For the selection of participants of "The Space Factor" contest interested PhD students from all fields covering space-related sciences should submit an abstract before 24th July 2015 via the online registration form, and indicate that they want to participate in the contest. On the second page of the form, a detailed CV, a publication record (peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings) and a short motivation letter, why the PhD student would like to participate at "The Space Factor" contest, need to be submitted before the same deadline.
