All trainee submissions are eligible to be considered for the Trainee Poster Competition. A total of 3-5 independent judges are assigned to review and score each trainee submission. The Top 20 highest-scoring trainee abstract submissions will be featured as the finalists in the Poster Competition and featured as speaker in the second Data Blitz session.
All Poster Competition finalists will be judged during a session on Monday. In the event of a tie, judges will refer to the original abstract scores for the tiebreaker. All judges decisions are final. All poster finalists are requred to attend the Awards Ceremony, where they will be presented with a certificate of recognition and finalist trophy. The top six highest scoring finalists will each receive one of the NNS Trainee Poster Competition Awards.
These awards recognize trainees who demonstrate scientific merit in research. A limited number of awards will be given to those trainees demonstrating merit and financial need. Any trainee that has not received a Trainee Award from NNS in the past 2 years may apply.
