Best Poster Award - Best poster presentation at the IAMC Annual Meeting
The Best Poster Award (BPA) recognises the best poster presentation in a given IAMC Annual Meeting. In the criteria for determining the best poster, the jury considers:
- preference for junior researcher as first author,
- the presence of author at the IAMC Meeting,
- the quality and novelty of the analysis and
- the presentation of material (should be well organized and “catchy”).
The BPA can be given more than once to a single person. Moreover, winning of the BPA does not exclude the winner from being nominated for other awards in the same year or in the future.
