Martin J. Aitken student poster awards at ISA


The student posters are judged by members of the Standing Committee of ISA using the following criteria:


ISA student posters should demonstrate clarity of content, quality of research, and best use of the poster format.

Specific guidelines
  1. Are the problem, methods, results, and conclusions clearly presented and easy to comprehend?
  2. Is the research competent? Is it also innovative to some degree? Are the techniques appropriate for the stated problem?
  3. A poster is not an oral paper. Has the student used the poster format to its best advantage? That is, is the text clear, concise, and balanced by carefully selected, highly visible images and graphs? A poster, like a good museum exhibit, should be easy to read from a short distance and easy to understand in a short amount of time (please note: good layout and ease of comprehension are more important than fancy fonts, designer colours, or expensive materials).
  4. The student applying for a poster award must be the first author of the paper presented as a poster. There is no limitation to the number of co-authors.
Requirements for student applicants
  1. The applicant must be a currently registered student.
  2. The applicant must be registered at the conference.
  3. The applicant must be present at the poster session to answer questions.
