Reasons you should present your research poster at this conference:

  • Your poster will be exposed to our international delegation 
  • Receive $50 off your registration 
  • Your poster abstract will be published in our conference materials 
  • Your poster will be automatically entered into poster competition (see below for details) 
  • Your research will be seen by leaders from top pharmaceutical, biotech, academic and government institutes 

Poster Competition Details:

  • Poster must be submitted by deadline, March 20th
  • Only posters from academic institutions will be judged
  • Two poster winners will be selected based on criteria below
  • Cash prizes will be awarded on last day of event (April 23, Thursday, at end of ‘Walk and Talk Lunch’ in exhibit hall); if winner is not present; award check will be mailed

First round of selection will be based on submitted abstracts and be judged by CHI Conference Directors and their Scientific Advisors. The following criteria will be used:

  • Clarity of abstract
  • Novelty of data
  • Significance for drug discovery

Final round will be judged on-site based on:

  • Aesthetic quality and visual clarity of poster
