First Annual ASAIHL-Scopus Young Scientist Awards winners selected at AIT


AIT recently provided the venue for a two-day meeting to decide the winners of the first Annual ASAIHL-Scopus Young Scientist Award. The meeting on November 10-11, 2008 at the AIT Center brought together twelve of Asia’s most eminent scholars under the leadership of Prof. Peter Haddawy (seated, third from left), Vice President for Academic Affairs, to decide this year’s top Asian scientists under forty years of age.

The panelists of distinguished experts from top academic and research institutions in the Asia-Pacific region reviewed over 180 applications and selected winners of the awards.

Three panelists sat in each of the four award categories – Agricultural Sciences, Life Sciences, Medicine and Engineering and Technology – and selected on the winners using criteria such as citations and h-index generated from the Scopus citation database and evaluation of the documented social impact of the applicants’ research. 

The award winners will be publically recognized during a special ceremony at the ASAIHL 28th General Conference on 12 – 14 December 2008 at University Sains Malaysia in Penang, Malaysia.

The ASAIHL International Office received competitive applications from more than 17 universities in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Pakistan, Indonesia and India.
