In recognition of the inspiring contributions made by women in science, the journal Ultrafast Science has established the Women in Ultrafast Science Global Award. This award aims to celebrate the achievements of outstanding women researchers by recognizing and supporting their important and original works in the field of ultrafast science.

Launched on 8 March, as of 30 May, the activity garnered 28 applications from 10 countries, they all come from internationally renowned academic institutions such as RIKEN, EPFL, Leibniz Institute of Photonics Technology, ICFO, Tsinghua University. The selection process was highly competitive.

After the preliminary shortlisting, 12 female scientists stand out, they will participate in the final round to compete for the Women in Ultrafast Science Global Award by presenting their scientific progress.

The final selection round will be held on 6 July (starting at 19:00 Beijing time/11:00 UTC/ 13:00 Berlin Time/20:00 Tokyo Time/ 7:00 Washington Time).

Please join the webinar from the live stream link:

If you are interested, please email to, a Zoom link for accessing the webinar will be sent to you.

The selection committee is composed of 6 renowned experts: Academician Professor MingHui Hong from the National University of Singapore, Professor Xicheng Zhang from the University of Rochester, Professor Franz X. Kärtner from Universitat Hamburg, Professor Katsumi Midorikawa from RIKEN, Professor Zhiyi Wei from the Institute of Physics, CAS, and Professor Yuxi Fu from the Xi'an Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics, CAS.

The activity is hosted by Dr.Jiangbo She, managing editor of Ultrafast Science.
