Poster Award

EAPS Poster Awards

Posters are a major communication tool for researchers. Since the European Population Conference of 2003 in Warsaw, posters are an integral part of the conference program. EAPS Poster Awards are presented to the best poster in each of the poster sessions.

Expert jury's of peers judge all posters in a poster session on the quality of its content, the richness of information, the clarity of presentation, the way in which the poster is presented at the conference by its author(s).

The EAPS Poster Awards are presented during the Award ceremony of the closing session at the European Population Conference.
