Dear SIT Members,

As young researchers it's of particular importance for us to recognize the broadness of the field we are working in, rather than only sticking to our topic. This is promoted by the truly interdisciplinary character of radiation research. Having this in mind and based on input from participants of previous years, the program for the SIT workshop in Hawaii has been organized to reflect this broadness, while highlighting the current interest in radiation research. We have a number of experienced scientists and excellent speakers who were all extremely pleased to speak to the SITs. This demonstrates the strong recognition of the SIT section in the society and shows how important the support of emerging scientists and of the SIT section is within the RRS. Besides a number of scientific talks there will also be presentations about grant writing, science policy and personal career accomplishments that will round up the story. We hope that the SIT workshop will meet your expectations and will be helpful and inspirational for your own work!
Thinking about what typically happens at conferences and what we can also expect from the Hawaii annual meeting, one particular feature comes to my mind: When talking to colleagues we often say and hear formulations like "I think..." or "in my opinion...". It's remarkable that in a field of science, which is completely evidence based at the end of the day, progress is made by following beliefs. Our success in research depends, to some extent, on the feeling in our fingertips, telling us which approach to choose or which direction not to follow in favor of others. Having direct interactions with other scientists is probably the most effective way for sharing beliefs and ideas. I am really looking forward to seeing many of you in Hawaii - let's take the chance to sharpen that important feeling in our fingertips, which will bring us further, and let fancy ideas grow!

Do you know of any SIT publications? Let us know! 
The SIT committee is now accepting nominations for the SIT Excellence in Mentorship Award. Many of us have made the experience that good mentorship is mandatory for a sound career development.
If you believe your mentor deserves recognition for his/her work in guiding early career scientists, please send a nomination letter detailing your nominee and their contributions for consideration to Keep in mind that a mentor can be nominated by multiple people. We look forward to receiving your nominations. Nominations will be accepted until June 12.
In this regard, the SIT committee released a brief overview of what good mentorship can mean, which is, e.g., important when searching for a new training position in the field of Radiation Research. The compilation was based on the input we received in last year's mentorship award nominations, where we were overwhelmed by the wide span of aspects brought up.
