The Outstanding Poster Award has been established in 2009, to highlight good quality posters presented at the EMS Annual Meetings.
As the goal of this poster award is to foster the clear communication of scientific content also to non-specialists of the presented topic, the emphasis of the evaluation is put on the attractiveness of the graphical representation and on the clarity of the text. Only posters which satisfy the communication criteria are taken into consideration for the evaluation from a scientific point of view.
