The IACS Early Career Scientist (ECS) Prize is a bi-annual cash prize of € 1000 awarded to two early career scientists who have published the best scientific papers on a cryospheric subject as assessed by an independent evaluation committee. The objective of the prize is to recognize excellence in cryospheric science by honouring and promoting two ECS scientists, and to draw attention to the work of IACS.
Awardees must be IACS members by the time the award is received.
The IACS statutes and by-laws were approved in 2007 and revised in 2015. IACS is currently working on further revisions in particular to account for the individual membership introduced in 2017.
The Terms of Reference (ToR) define the operation of IACS Working Groups, Standing Groups and Joint Bodies.
