ESPE President Poster Awards

This year, instead of the ESPE President Poster Awards, there will be the ESPE People's Choice Poster Awards. Please view the People's Choice Poster Awards page for more information.

The ESPE President Poster Awards are bestowed by the Programme Organising Committee members to the presenting and first author of the five selected posters.

The winners are announced by the President of the meeting during the ESPE President Poster Awards session held prior to the closing ceremony. Each award consists of an official ESPE award diploma, a presidential gift and a citation in the list of ESPE award winners. Further information about the awards will be included in the abstract submission information available on the Annual Meeting page.


The selection criteria are based on the scientific content and on the quality of the poster presentation. The five awarded posters are selected from the 50 poster abstracts which attained the best ratings during the abstract evaluation process.
