This award is given to excellent young poster presenters in a JSCR annual meeting (under 35 years old and about 4 winners per year). The sialic acids society (president: Tamio Yamakawa, secretary general: Haruo Ogura) also offers additional prizes to the awardees. The selection committee evaluated 87 candidates among 162 presentations in the 37th JSCR annual meetings, which was applied for this award in advance, by abstracts, quality of posters, presentation, and discussion. We have decided that the award is given to 6 presenters as follows this year. We will have a ceremony in an upcoming general meeting, which will be held during the 38th annual meeting in 2019. It was a severe competition and there were many great presentations in addition to the winners. We will welcome your applying for the award next year and would like to acknowledge the selection committee for their cooperation.
