The selection committee for the SNIC-AsCA2019 Singapore Award for Solid State Chemistry & Materials has defined the following executive rules and procedures for this inaugural award:

1. Eligibility: Applicants must have accomplished outstanding research in any aspects of solid-state chemistry of crystalline materials including synthesis, properties, reactions, structures, and crystallography. Special consideration will be given to independence of thought and originality. The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background. Nevertheless, the original work should have been done independently in Singapore for this award. The award winner must present a talk at the forthcoming ChnmSG and an active member of SNIC. At the end of the talk, the citation of the award winner will be read out by the chair before or after the award is presented.

2. Nomination: Nominations will be solicited once a year before the ChnmSG. For 2021, it is open now and will be closed on October 31, 2020.

3. Criteria & Selection Procedure: Apart from the submitted applications, the committee can also invite the eligible candidates directly to apply for this award if necessary. If there is no suitable candidate found, the award needed not be presented in that year.
