Best Poster Award

The Best Poster Award has been established to recognize the scientific merit exhibited in poster presentation and preparation.

During the technical session, the session chair is invited to judge the quality of the 3-minutes presentation.  After the presentation, the session chair is invited to look at the posters of his session. Criteria of judgement on the presentation shall be the ability of summarizing the content of the work and motivating the interest in looking at the poster. Criteria of judgement on the poster should be clarity of poster and appearance quality.

Moreover, each conference day a best poster will be voted according to the participants’ preference. Each participant can vote no more than one poster per day. Criteria for voting should be clarity of poster and quality of poster appearance.

 

Selection Process

Each session chair evaluates the posters of his/her session. All posters are judged according to the same criteria on a 10-points scale.

Participants can vote their favorite poster each conference day. The poster, which obtains the highest number of votes, receives 2 scores and the others will receive points in a proportional way.

A ranking is compiled each day considering the sum of the scores obtained by the session chair and by the participants. In case of tie, the Poster Award Committee will define further criteria to assign the award.

The 2 posters with the highest score will be appointed as “posters of the day”. The posters of the day will be exposed during all the conference days.

The six “posters of the day” will be awarded on the closing ceremony.

 

Award Announcement and Nature of Award

The award recipients will be announced at the closing ceremony. A certificate stating the award name, the name of the presenting author, and title of the presentation will be sent to the award recipient after the conference.
