All scholars must present their current research work at the school poster session on November 14th at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (for those enrolled is optional).

An award will be issued to the student presenting the best poster at the APCISS:

  • 1st: USD $250
  • 2nd: USD $150
  • 3rd: USD $100

The award selection committee will be composed by five professors from different countries and institutions. This committee will evaluate the poster presentation on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Synthesis of the research project.
  2. Poster layout.
  3. Oral presentation clarity.
  4. Answers to questions.

The committee will not base its evaluation by considering the obtained research results, since the posters are to be regarded as work-in-progress.
