Poster Award

The IFSCC Poster Award  is awarded to the author of the most meritorious poster presentation pertaining to either basic or applied cosmetic research at an IFSCC Congress or an IFSCC Conference. In Congress years the award consists of an amount of 2,000 Swiss Francs or equivalent and in Conference years the award is 1,000 Swiss Francs or equivalent. This amount will be provided by the Host Society and deposited in the Federation’s account not more than three months after the Host Society’s Congress.

In order to compete for this Award, applicants should submit their full text in English and indicate on their abstract submission form that they want to enter their work for the category Poster Award.  Abstracts originally submitted for oral presentations that have been accepted as posters will automatically qualify for competition provided they were entered to compete in either the Basic or Applied Research category. Posters should be original. Failure to adhere to the time scales for submission of manuscripts set by the organising committee will result in exclusion from the competition.

At least one of the authors of the poster should be registered as a full paying delegate for the Congress.

Obligation of the recipient of the IFSCC Poster Award
By accepting the IFSCC Poster Award, the recipient agrees to submit his or her poster as a full paper to both the IFSCC Magazine and the journal of his or her local Society for publication in the first issue following in Congress.
