ArcticNet organizes a Conference Poster Competition to recognize excellence in science and its presentation by Early Career Researchers. This competition is open to all Master’s and Doctoral students with an abstract approved for poster presentation and who are registered to the ASM2019. Each contestant can only present one poster.

In addition to bringing your printed poster at the conference, an electronic version of your poster in PDF format will also be required to facilitate judging and will be made available post-conference as part of the online Conference Proceedings.

A panel of judges will evaluate eligible posters based on set criteria, including clarity, comprehensiveness and conciseness of the abstract, the scientific quality and presentation of research.

The winners of the Poster Awards are presented with $1000 CAD for first place in each of the following three categories: Social and Health Science, Marine Sciences and Terrestrial Sciences. The Graduate Student Poster Award winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the Banquet Dinner on the evening of 5 December 2019.
