To encourage recognition of the scientific merit of early career researchers, the SPPT organizes EATON poster prize sponsored by EATON corporation. This prize can be granted to student researchers (master, PhD) in recognition of an excellent poster at the conference. The poster must be prepared and presented by the student author.
The best poster will be evaluated during symposium poster sessions, the most important criteria being the scientific content, design of the poster and poster presentation to the evaluation committee. Every interested eligible person (only winner´s eligibility will be checked, e.g. by her/his student book or any other official document) has to register herself/himself at the registration desk, where he/she receives a label. Every contestant is obliged to mark his/her poster with this label not later than at 9:30 a.m. on the day of his/her poster presentation.
