All invited congress posters will be grouped in defined thematic sections.
Three Poster Awards (PA; first, second and third place certificates) will be given to top presentations in each thematic group. The independent PA Committee will judge all posters during the two stand-alone afternoon Poster Sessions (October 9 and 10, 2019); the PA assessment will be based on the combined quality of:
a) the poster itself,
b) 3min flash-presentation (by the presenting author)
c) short Q&A follow-up.
The attendance of the presenting authors is required in order to be considered for the Poster Award.
Poster Awards are honor-based and do not include any financial prize.
The awardees will be announced at the closing Session, October 11, 2019 (Friday).
