Poster prizes at FEBS 2019


Posters will be an important medium for scientific information exchange at the 44th FEBS Congress, and efforts will be recognized with several prizes. Good luck!

In recognition of the contribution of posters to the 44th FEBS Congress, FEBS Press prizes for outstanding posters will be awarded by The FEBS Journal, FEBS Letters, Molecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio. From a daily shortlist of posters chosen by journal editors on the basis of submitted abstracts, a panel of jurors will view the displayed posters and talk to the presenters. They will be looking for high-quality and exciting unpublished research presented in a clear and appealing manner. Daily winners will be announced at the FEBS stand from 16:00 on Sunday through Wednesday of the Congress, with presentation of mini-prizes at 11:15 the following day. Daily winners will go forward for consideration for overall poster prizes of €200 each, to be presented at the Congress Closing Ceremony.

In addition, this year we will be trialling a ‘people's vote’ for best posters through the Congress app (coming soon), and there will also be a poster prize from The Biochemical Journal. Furthermore, the FEBS Education Committee will announce their selection of best education poster at the start of Education Session 2 on the Tuesday of the Congress.

Finally, don't forget that delegates can make a 1-minute video about their poster for the FEBS Network, and the best contributions there can also win prizes – read about this here and have a go!

For important information for poster preparation and poster hanging at the event, please see the the Poster Guidelines webpage.

FEBS has twin commitments to high-quality publications and the promotion of molecular biosciences. As a charitable academic organization,
