What is SIYSS?

SIYSS is an annual week-long event for young international scientists, arranged in connection with the Nobel festivities by the SIYSS Committee of the Swedish

Federation of Young Scientists with support from the Nobel Foundation. The program aims to promote international understanding and friendship, bringing

together young people from all over the world with similar interests. The participants are selected in different ways: some are winners of national science fairs,

others represent organizations for young scientists, and others are selected by merit at their home universities. Whatever their background, they all have two

things in common: a great interest in natural sciences and a curiosity for other cultures and people. The program of the week comprises of scientific activities and

lectures as well as unique occasions to meet the Nobel Laureates. Furthermore, the students are introduced to Swedish science and research as well as

Swedish culture and customs. However, the main event of the week is a big seminar where the participants present their research to each other and Swedish

students. The week culminates with the Nobel festivities where the SIYSS participants attend both the Nobel Reception at Nordiska Museet and the Nobel Prize

Award Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall, followed by the Nobel Banquet at the Stockholm City Hall as well as the Nobel Night Cap, the final festivity after

the banquet.
