- The competition will consists of two parts:
Part I: blitz slide presentation of the research - each participant will have 2 minutes to introduce their research to the broader audience before the actual poster competition. This part is intended for networking and visibility of students’ research within the EMI community including other student participants, CMC members and judges.
Part II: poster competition - the posters and supplementary papers will be judged by a panel of up to three judges selected from the CMC membership.
- Note that students must participate in both parts of the competition. The CMC chair will inform all students the date and time of the two parts of the competition.
- One winner and two runner-ups will be selected by the judges based on the quality of the poster, the supplemental paper and the oral introductory presentation.
- Awards will be presented to the competition winners during the conference.
