Student poster competition
As the Symposium is taking place in an online format this year we would encourage you to also include a short video (3-5 minutes) presenting the poster that we can include together with the abstract and poster PDF for delegates to watch. A demo for making a video is available here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rjbB57vQh8
For students there will be a poster competition. If you wish to enter, please indicate this when providing the details of your poster. There will be one prize of £200 for the poster submitted by a student considered to be the best by the independent judging panel of regulatory affairs experts. The judges will be TOPRA members and the Advisory panel. The winning posters will also be featured on the TOPRA website and in our internal member newsletter. The event is intentionally cross-disciplinary, and you are being judged, in part, on your ability to represent your research to a broad audience who may not be experts in your field. You are unlikely to be judged by an academic from your own subject area and you should bear this in mind when considering how to present your work.
It is not a requirement to attend the Symposium but if your poster is accepted, and you wish to attend, you are eligible for a discount from the full symposium fee. Students in full-time education are eligible for a 50% discount and students in part-time education are eligible for a 25% discount. If you would like to attend please contact TOPRA’s meetings team for the discount code.
The judges’ decision is final and the winner agrees that their name and photograph may be used in post-event publicity.
