The posters will be evaluated by a panel of judges (i.e. the Organizing Committee) based on:


  • Interest (e.g. Is the content original, important or relevant to the industry?)
  • Scientific quality and novelty (e.g. How and to what extent are the findings likely to influence clinical or research practice, education or even the Government policy?)
  • Quality of visual presentation (e.g. Poster layout)
  • Unique feature to attract the audience (for Most Popular Poster)


Each award winner will receive a certificate and a cash award:

Best Poster: US$1,000
1st Runner-up: US$800
2nd Runner-up: US$600

Most Popular Poster: US$800

The poster awards will be assigned during the congress and delivered to the winners in occasion of the Gala Dinner.


Deadline: 31 March 2023

The online submission system will close after the deadline.
