During the conference, the poster jury will evaluate 100 posters which were pre-selected by the Scientific Committee based on the quality of the submitted abstracts. The poster jury will select the best 3 posters based on scientific content (novelty of the work, quality of the results and discussion) and presentation (appearance, clarity). Each poster will be evaluated by at least 3 reviewers. The authors of the best 3 posters will be awarded with the ESACT 2017 poster prize during the diner on Wednesday evening.

The poster prizes will be:

  • 1st prize: EUR 3000
