Posters will be reviewed by multiple judges. First round of judging will include a silent and discreet walk around by the judges (no verbal presentation required). During this round, judges will rank each poster and that will generate a shortlist for a second round of judging. In the second round of judging, the shortlisted poster owners will be asked to give a 3 minute presentation to the judges. The time limit is strictly applied. During this round, each poster will be scored in three categories:

  • Presentation: effectiveness of visual and verbal communication
  • Clarity: Method and impact of work
  • Quality: Control/reproducibility of results

The best posters and their owners will be invited to present (regardless of category) to compete for a cash prize. In the spirit of recent popular thesis presentation by the University of Manitoba's 3MT® and Ph.D. Comic's 2 Minute Thesis Contest, the participants will be given 3 minutes to present their poster to the entire conference and independent judging panel. The presentation will take place with the poster projected onto the lecture theatre screen. The time limit is strictly enforced.

Come prepared and bring your poster in a printed format as well as electronic format (ie: USB).

Please note there are a limited number of poster boards available.
