Selection procedure of the poster awards

Posters have become increasingly important as a communication medium at congresses. In some areas of science, for instance in the medical field, posters have even become the core of the meeting. Indeed, on scientific conferences poster presentations are an efficient way to deal with the increasing demand of researchers to display and discuss their own research with colleagues.

The ESSPD wishes to stimulate this development and to increase the quality of poster presentations. For this reason all posters will be peer reviewed.  During the congress a jury of experts in our field will judge the posters.

All accepted poster presentations are candidate for the ESSPD poster award.

The poster award jury will evaluate the posters on site during the conference and will announce the winner during the 5th International BPD congress in Sitges/Barcelona, Spain, 27-29 September 2018.

The final selection of poster awards will be made on the basis of the study’s scientific excellence.

The best 3 posters will receive the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ESSPD Poster Award valued at € 300, € 200 and € 100 respectively.
