Best Poster Awards


Aim

To select 4 best posters from all presented posters.

Method of Judgement

A two stage process is envisaged:
•    Stage I:  Screening for pre-qualification of 20 poster finalists, based on the reviews their abstracts received from the International Scientific Committee.
•    Stage II: Three Judges appointed by the Scientific Committee would read the final written papers and attend the poster presentation for on-site evaluation and assign scores.

On-site Evaluation Criteria and Scores

The three Judges will examine the 20 posters on site and evaluate them according to the following criteria:
1. Presentation: layout (attractiveness, legibility, creativity)
2. Content: innovative ideas and value of subject matter
3. Presenter’s ability to convey the message

For each criteria, the scoring varies from 10 (excellent, relevant, important results, has succinctly identified important points) to 1 (erroneous, irrelevant, out of date, local interest only). 10 is maximum, and 5 is average. Maximum total of 30 scores for the three criteria combined. Each evaluator will be instructed to give as distinct score levels as possible.

Process

• The Scientific Committee Chair will appoint a Head judge.
• Three (3) designated members by the Scientific Committee will act as the judges. They will first pre-screen the poster abstracts and select a batch of twenty (20) finalists based on the initial reviews received from the International Scientific committee.
• The results of the selected finalists will be reviewed and confirmed by the Head Judge.
• The same three (3) judges will perform the on-site evaluation.
• To avoid potential conflict of interest, no person will be appointed as judge if he is also an author/co-author of an abstract for poster.
• The Head Judge will collect all judges’ score and tabulate results; in the case of ties, review and decide on the winner(s).
• An Award Certificate with a gift will be presented to the recipient at the award ceremony; the time and date to be announced later.
• Photos will be taken of each award recipient and as a group during the award ceremony. A copy will be given to the recipient as souvenir and one for TRANSED 2012 file.
