A prize is given to the delegate/presenter of the best paper as judged by the Scientific Committee of the conference. Each paper is reviewed by a selection of the committee members and evaluated under the areas of
- “Impact on local country or internationally”;
- “Strength of Methodolgies” and
- “Valid Data/Evidence to Support the Conclusions”.
The delegate with the highest marks is presented with the prize. Note that authors may opt not to take part in this competition element of the poster presentation by highlighting this requirement as part of the abstract submission. Where an author takes part in the competition, they must submit the full paper in advance of the conference and will be notified of the submission date.
A prize is given to the presenter of the best poster as judged by three members of the scientific committee of the conference.
