Project Level Posters – 2011

   Back to 2011 GRM home page

Public vote and performance awards | Poster PDFs

Participants at the 2011 GRM were invited to present a poster on GCP work, or on work related to GCP’s mission for non-GCP scientists.

Posters were grouped by the four themes listed further below in the 'Poster PDFs' section. The idea was for communication and fun whilst sharing information. The scope of the posters was to be exciting results from GCP projects, or non-GCP work which is however related to GCP’s mission. Striking concepts and methodologies were also welcome.

In line with the previous ARM poster sessions, presenters were faced with the challenge of engaging the audience and employing the necessary powers of persuasion to 'sell' their respective posters as the best of the bunch - and all in  Powerpoint-barred presentations of 60 seconds or less! Besides a ticking clock, poster presenters were also restricted to using only  their presentation-making skills, charm, wit and creativity. Unlike in previous years, transparencies were not allowed, though other, more ‘unusual’ visual aids were encouraged. Besides time and material limitations, presenters were encouraged to let their imagination, creativity, and all-important sense of humour roam free!

As in previous years, the poster presentations were followed by poster viewing sessions, in which our GRM audience were asked to cast votes for their favourite posters within each of the four themes.  The winning posters are announced in the poster winners gallery below.

Public vote and performance awards

There were two categories of awards to certify and celebrate the posters presented.

  • A public vote for the winning poster for each of the four themes (and therefore objective and based on indisputable metrics), and,
  • Performance awards, mostly for creativity and prowess when 'selling' the poster during the 60-second sizzle at plenary (zero metrics, and completely subjective, based purely on the perception of the poster session organisers).
