Analytical Chemistry - Young Innovator Award
This award, sponsored by the Journal of Analytical Chemistry and Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS), recognizes the contributions of an individual who has demonstrated exceptional technical advancement and innovation in the field of micro- or nanofluidics in his or her early career.

Lab on a Chip and Dolomite - Pioneers in Miniaturization Lectureship
An award given for young-to-mid-career scientists, the prize recognizes outstanding contributions to the understanding and development of miniaturized systems. Sponsored by Lab on a Chip, Dolomite, and Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS).

NIST and Lab on a Chip - Art in Science Award
To draw attention to the aesthetic value in scientific illustrations while still conveying scientific merit, the MicroTAS Conference features an award titled, "Under the Looking Glass: Art from the World of Small Science" sponsored by NIST and Lab on a Chip. Applications are encouraged from any person attending the MicroTAS Conference and the winner will be selected by a panel of senior scientists in the field of MicroTAS.

Biomicrofluidics - Best Paper Award
The Biomicrofluidics Best Paper Award, sponsored by AIP Publishing, is an award given to recognize excellence in the proceedings submitted to the MicroTAS Conference by PhD students and young researchers. This year, a review committee will select the three best papers from the submitted abstracts. The winners will be announced and recognized at the MicroTAS virtual meeting during the Award Ceremony.

Lab on a Chip - Widmer Poster Award
The Widmer Poster Award Competition sponsored by Lab on a Chip is an award given to recognize excellence amongst the annual MicroTAS Conference poster presenters. This year, a review committee will select the overall best poster from the virtual poster session and all posters will be reviewed for this honor. The winner and award will be announced at the MicroTAS virtual meeting.

CHEMINAS - Young Researcher Poster Award
The Young Researcher Poster Award Competition sponsored by The Society for Chemistry and Micro-Nano Systems (CHEMINAS) to recognize excellence among its participants. A select group of poster judges will select, on a daily basis, the best presented posters from the poster session. The winners and awards will be announced during the Awards Ceremony at the MicroTAS Conference.

IMT Masken und Teilungen AG - Microfluidics on Glass Award Poster
To be relevant to the spirit and intent of this Microfluidics on Glass Award, the advancement considered must address at least one of the following:
  • Use glass as a substrate material for a nano/microfluidic device where the unique optical, electrical, or surface properties of glass provide a profound advantage,
  • Demonstrate novel biosensing capabilities,
  • Exhibit hybridisation of glass with other materials (composites),
  • Establish design for manufacturability with materials and processes that have the potential to be scaled up through transfer to industry.
Sensors (MDPI) - Outstanding Sensors and Actuators, Detection Technologies Poster Award
The Outstanding Sensors and Actuators, Detection Technologies Poster Award Competition sponsored by Sensors (MDPI), is to recognize excellence among its participants. The winners and awards will be announced during the Awards Ceremony at the MicroTAS Conference.

Micromachines (MDPI) - Travel Awards
Micromachines (MDPI) is offering travel support, on a competitive basis, for students and young researchers (i.e. 3 years after obtaining their PhD degree) who are authors of accepted papers (excluding Late News) for an oral or poster presentation at the upcoming MicroTAS Conference. All presenting authors are eligible and no application is required. The selection process strives to award highly scored contributions, while also giving consideration to geographical and topical balance, among other criteria.

CBMS LMIC Student/Young Researcher Awards
The Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS) is offering awards to offset registration fees, on a competitive basis, for virtual or in-person MicroTAS 2021 conference attendees who are working at institutions located in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). Students and young researchers (≤ 3 years after obtaining their PhD degree) who have been successful in being accepted for an oral or poster presentation at the upcoming MicroTAS conference are eligible and "accepting" the invitation to attend will be your application to receive this award.
