The poster session will include 2 rounds. Candidates are kindly asked to stay in front of their poster until all posters have been visited by jury members, and to wait to know whether they are shortlisted for the second round.
During the first round, Jury members will be divided into 3 groups. Each group will visit 7-8 Posters. Each poster will be evaluated by a minimum of 3 jury members. Authors will have no more than 3 minutes (strictly respected) to present their work. This presentation will be followed by 3 minutes of questions by Jury members.
At the end of the first round, each of the three juries will select the best (or 2 best) posters for the second round. During this second round, Authors will have no more than 3 minutes (strictly respected) to present their work in front of the whole jury (15 members). This presentation will be followed by 5 minutes of questions. At the end of the second round, the jury will award 3 posters. Names of the awardees will be announced on 4th February, during the Poster award ceremony.
