COMP Poster Awards

COMP Poster Awards

The COMP Poster Awards are given each year at the COMP Annual Scientific Meeting. The posters are judged on both scientific merit and communication. These competitions are open to all members and student members of COMP. A four to six member panel, with at least two members from each sub-specialty, judges the poster presentations.
