Student Awards

Oral and Poster Student Awards

We are pleased to announce that we will grant a number of Oral and Poster Student Awards at the 2020 Congress.

Supporting and encouraging student researchers is essential for the future of any field of scientific inquiry. The ISEK Awards program is in place to acknowledge those student members with an outstanding academic record in the field of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology.  



  • Must be a full-time graduate student
  • Must submit an abstract for the 2020 Congress
  • Must be available to present at the 2020 Congress
  • Must be a presenting and first author
  • Must indicate interest and confirm eligibility when submitting an abstract


The Student Awards Committee reviewed all 106 applications (40 oral presentations and 66 poster presentations) and is pleased to announce its selection of finalists.  From these lists and based on the presentations at the Virtual Congress, the Student Awards Committee will grant 3 Oral Presentation Awards and 5 Poster Presentation Awards.
