Our 2015 conference also saw the introduction of the poster exhibition, as an alternative for postgraduates to presenting a paper, with an open ballot during the conference to decided the winner of the prize for the best poster by a postgraduate.

Any poster by a postgraduate student accepted for the conference is automatically entered for the prize.
