Abdel El-Shaarawi Young Researcher's Award
Call for nominations are announced prior to a TIES meeting. The award winner will not yet have reached his/her 41st birthday at the time of nomination and is recognized for having made outstanding contributions to the field of environmetrics.
The award was established through a motion of the Board of Directors in 2001 and subsequent definition of the nature of the award. The motion reads:
’Whereas I [ Francis Philbert] vividly recall Abdel's (along with [others']) pioneering efforts in initiating and organizing the first TIES conference held in Cairo, Egypt, April 4-7, 1989; And whereas Abdel has been the Society’s president from its inception until 2000, with his name becoming synonymous with the acronym “TIES”; And whereas Abdel has done an outstanding job in shepherding the Society in its formative years and he has been instrumental in establishing it as the stable and well recognized society that it is today; I move that as a fitting recognition of, and show of appreciation for, Abdel’s outstanding contribution and dedication to TIES, he be honoured by our establishment of an annual award or lectureship in his name.”
The Board further established that it be a Young Researcher’s award for excellence and not be restricted to TIES members. See the List of Winners.
