FEBRUARY 28, 2014 is the deadline to submit abstracts to be considered in the competition for poster awards.

Posters presented at HPLC 2014 New Orleans will be reviewed by an international panel of scientists. All presented posters are evaluated based on three selection criteria:

  • Inspiration – creativity, newness, uniqueness, originality
  • Transpiration – experimental execution, completeness of the work
  • Presentation – overall readability of the poster, visual impression, author’s explanations

Posters will be up all week. Poster presenters who make it into the final round are asked to stay until the Best Poster Award ceremony on Thursday.

Cash prizes will be awarded and presented at the closing ceremony.
