    EMIM 2021 Poster Awards

    Particular attention has been paid to the best possible way of the presentation of your posters:

    In 2021 two poster sessions are scheduled - with no competitive session in parallel - in order to enhance knowledge exchange between senior and junior researchers, to provide YOU with the opportunity to put your work up for discussion, and the other attendees with the possibility to discuss your findings.

    Guided thematic poster walks are scheduled. Each poster walk is chaired by two chairpersons and will result in one ESMI Poster Awards 2021.

    The poster awards will be presented during the awarding and farewell session scheduled for Friday 27 August 2021.
