Criteria for posters


  • Maximum width: 48 inches
  • Maximum height: 48 inches


The poster should include work done in the last year.


Please see the schedule for up to date details.


The posters will be reviewed by multiple judges. Presenters will be asked by the judges to give a short (180 second) summary of the poster – the time limit will be strictly applied.
Each poster will be scored in three categories:
  • Presentation: effectiveness of visual and verbal communication
  • Clarity: methodology and impact of work
  • Quality: control/reproducibility of results
The best presentations will be invited (regardless of category) to compete for an additional cash prize. In the spirit of recent popular thesis presentations by the University of Manitoba’s 3MT® and PhD Comics’s 2 Minute Thesis Contest, the participants will be given 180 seconds to present their poster to the entire conference and an independent judging panel. The presentation will take place with the poster projected onto the lecture theatre screen and the time limit will be strictly enforced.

Please come prepared and bring your poster in a printed format and electronic format (e.g. USB key).

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