Radek Melka prize
The prize has been established by friends of Mr. Radek Melka to remember this outstanding young Czech scientist in structural geology who passed away at the age of 30 in 1994. Since 2015, the Radek Melka Prize is awarded every second year (except Covid break) to the best paper by an author from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, or Hungary of age up to 35 years in the year of publication. Therefore, it will be awarded at CETEG 2023. Publications between 2019 and 2023 are accepted. Please send your papers for the competition as pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org, and cc: to email@example.com before 1st April 2023. Referees will be nominated by the Board of the Czech Tectonic Studies Group and the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science to select the best paper considering its significance of scientific contribution, originality of approach, and author's share in the published work. The winner will be announced at the 19th CETEG Meeting during the conference dinner. Colleagues are asked to distribute this information to young scientists, who can apply for the prize with a published paper, in which the applicant is the first author. The prize is sponsored by the Czech Tectonic Studies Group and the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science.
