Poster Assessment Guidelines

  1. Poster presenters will be available next to their posters during their entire allocated session to present their work and to address any questions from adjudicators and participants.
  2. Adjudicators will be provided with all poster abstracts in advance and will request presentations (of 2 mins + 1 min Q&A) from students during their allocated sessions. Each pair of adjudicators will be accompanied by a timer.
  3. Presenters not available at their posters at the time of adjudicator visit will be forfeited from the competition.
