Best Poster Award:

The “best poster prize” is awarded by the EAA working groups and sponsored by the organizing committee of the conference. The posters will be selected according to scientific quality of the materials presented [50%], the clarity of the message being conveyed by the poster [25%] and the overall design of the poster and its impact from a distance [25%]. The best poster will be selected by a committee consisting of the speaker of the working groups, a member of the organising committee and up to 5 members from different working groups. The chair of each working group pre-selects 5 posters of highest scientific quality from the abstracts submitted until the submission deadline. The selection committee inspects and rates the pre-selected posters with respect to the poster prize criteria. Up to ten poster prizes will be awarded in total and each working group will receive the number of poster prizes proportional to the number of abstracts in this working group. The poster prizes are presented by the speaker of the working groups. The award consists of a certificate signed by the conference chair and the speaker of the working groups and a check over the sum of 100 €. The organising committee of the European Aerosol Conference will provide the prize money out of the conference budget.

During the EAC2009 in Karlsruhe the Best Poster Awards will be presented after the plenary talk on Friday, 11 September 2009, 9:45 - 9:55.
