Best Poster and Trojan Horse Awards
22nd ETH-Conference on Combustion Generated Nanoparticles
June 18th - 21st, 2018 at ETH Zurich, Switzerland
The most accomplished poster presentations at the ETH Conference on Combustion Generated Nanoparticles will be rewarded with a Best Poster Award.
The poster committee evaluates all posters on their design, clarity of the presentation - both of the poster and also when talking to the presenter - and scientific content. The three best poster presentations are recognized by award certificates and prize money. In 2018 the best-rated posters will receive a prize money of CHF 600 (approx. USD 638) for the first, CHF 400 (approx. USD 425) for the second and CHF 200 (approx. USD 212) for the third ranked poster.
SWISSLUNG sponsers the awards for the three best posters presented at the 22 nd ETH Nanoparticle Conference.
