Poster Sessions

The poster session is and has always been a vital part of the meeting. All abstracts not selected for oral presentations will be on display as posters during the entire meeting to give ample time for informal discussions among students, senior scientists from academia and industry. The maximum allowed size for a poster is 120cm height by 90cm width (=47 x 35 inches).

ABC2014 Young Investigator Awards

All abstracts submitted by graduate students or postdoctoral fellows as first authors are subject to scientific evaluation by selected SAB members. The best abstracts will be awarded a cash prize, the "ABC2014 Young Investigator Award" at the end of the conference.
