FEBS Publications Poster Prizes

'Poster of the Day' prizes for outstanding scientific posters at the FEBS Congress will be awarded by The FEBS Journal, FEBS Letters, Molecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio at each poster session – and from these, four overall journal poster prize winners will be selected to receive a prize of €200 at the Closing Session.

For the selection of the Posters of the Day, a shortlist of approximately 30 contenders for each of the three poster sessions will be drawn up by the Congress organizing committee based on their assessment of abstracts submitted to the event. At the Congress poster sessions, a jury of FEBS journal editors and GBM-selected group leaders will examine the presented posters from this shortlist, looking for high-quality and exciting unpublished research presented in a clear and appealing manner. Their scores will determine the Poster of the Day awards, and the overall journal poster prize winners for the Congress will be selected from the Posters of the Day by the editors of each FEBS journal.
