From 2006, two awards for posters presented at the Plasma Science & Technology Symposium have been initiated. The awards carry a cash component of Rs. 5000/- each and a certificate of merit. This award is partly sponsored by the industry. Currently there are 4 awards in this category. Depending on the number of sponsors, the number of awards can go up.


There is NO age limit for this award.


All awards are open to poster presentations from R&D institutions/ Universities/Colleges.


There is no need for applying specifically for the award. The awards will be given on the basis of the posters evaluated at the time of the conference.


Only posters presented at the conference will be considered for the award. Please note that unattended posters WILL NOT be considered for the award.


Winner of these awards will have to become a member of PSSI if he/she is not already a  member.

PSSI is thankful to the various sponsors who have supported these awards over the years.
