Poster Prize and assessment criteria
Selection procedure

The poster prize will only be awarded to early-career researchers. Competing for the prize is quite simple. Master students, PhDs and Postdocs can nominate their poster if they are the first author by submitting the title and abstract to the poster jury via email to, listing in the subject line: 'I nominate my poster'. Deadline for nominating your poster is 19 March 2023. Easy does it, right?!

Assessment criteria

The selection of the top-three posters will be performed by a dedicated poster jury, comprising members of the Programme Committee. The poster jury will use the following criteria for their assessment:

  1. Design and Lay Out – Is your attention drawn or not?
  2. Accessibility – Is the explanation of the research comprehensible for outsiders, even without the first author present?
  3. Content – How much is explained in how few words, and does the text encourage to read on?
  4. Structure – Is there a clear build-up of arguments/explanations?

If you want to increase your chances of winning the poster prize, make sure that you keep these four criteria in mind while preparing your poster. Please also read our dedicated page with our top tips for Scientific Poster Design.

Posters will be displayed only on one of the conference days, linked to the topics of parallel sessions. The poster prizes will be awarded during a plenary award ceremony. Participants in the poster prize competition should be present during the ceremony.
