Poster Competition with Prizes, sponsored by the Prep Symposium

Poster presentations are a very important component of the PREP Symposia. In order to acknowledge their contribution to the field and high standards of the symposium, awards will be offered to distinguish the best poster contributions at PREP 2018. Posters will be evaluated on the basis of scientific content, clarity of presentation, and layout. Posters co-authored by members of the Scientific and Industrial Advisory Committees or by judges are eligible only if the main author and presenter of the poster is not a member on the above committees. Posters authored or co-authored by members of the Organizing Committee or judges are not eligible for Best Poster Awards. However, should these posters be considered of sufficient quality to be among the top prize-winning entries, they will be given an Honorable Mention. The Poster Judging Committee will have final say in the selection of the Prize Winners. At least two committee members will read each poster and top posters will be read by at least four committee members. If a poster author does not want his/her poster considered for a poster award, they must notify the Symposium Manager before 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10. Presentation of awards to winners of the Best Poster Competition will take place at the end of the session immediately prior to the Wednesday mid-morning break. The winners are encouraged to be present, but it is not mandatory to be present to win.
