All posters presented at MSB 2018 will be considered for a Best Poster MSB 2018 Award.

The posters will be reviewed by an international panel of scientists based on the following criteria:

  • Novelty and originality of the work, creativity and potential for innovation;
  • Scope of work, technical quality of experimental design, and execution of experiments;
  • Readability of the presentation and author’s explanations.

Posters will be up and presented at specific times assigned in the program. Please review instructions for poster presentations here.

Poster awards comprise cash prizes for the 4 best posters. Runners-up 5-10 will receive book vouchers (made available by Springer-Verlag) or a one-year free subscription to Analyst, Analytical Methods or Lab-on-a-chip (made available by the Royal Society of Chemistry).

Poster prize winners will be presented and awarded at the Closing Ceremony on Wednesday. All nominees will receive a certificate to acknowledge their achievement.
