All posters presented at MSB 2017 will be considered for a Best Poster MSB 2017 Award. The posters will be reviewed by an international panel of scientists chaired by Dr. Monika Dittmann, Agilent Technologies, Germany 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 during the entire symposium. Presenters of a poster with an odd number should be at their poster during the poster session on Monday; presenters of posters with an even number should be at their poster during the poster session on Tuesday.

Poster awards comprise cash prizes (sponsored by Janssen Biologics) for the four best posters. Runners-up 5-10 will receive a book voucher (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.
