Biometry award

The Hans van Houwelingen Award Biometry Award is granted every two years to a first author of either Dutch nationality or working in a Dutch institution. The publication that is granted the award has contributed significantly to the development or application of biometry. Further conditions have been set down in the Biometry Award Regulations.

Call for nominations for the Hans van Houwelingen Biometry Award 2022

The call for nominations for the Hans van Houwelingen Biometry Award 2022 is now open. This time, the award will cover papers published in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Nominations – including a PDF of the article – should be sent before January 16, 2023, to the BMS-ANed board: Only one ‘first author’ paper can be submitted per person. Further details on the regulation are provided in the Biometry Award Regulations. The winning paper will be chosen by an international jury installed by the board of BMS-ANed.
