Posters sessions will run throughout the inter-congress, with dedicated slots when poster presenters will be available at their respective display to discuss their topic with the colleagues. The Poster Competition is an excellent opportunity for junior scholars and students (both graduate and undergraduate) to present original research at an academic conference in an accessible and interactive setting. We will give out presentation awards, based on the following criteria:
- Content: the poster should present the research projects and its findings in a comprehensive, clear and cogent way
- Relevance: content should be relevant to the conference theme (Movement) and, represent an original contribution to current anthropological debates
- Aesthetic form: layout of text and imagery should be well-organised and visually attractive
- Presentation: in person, presenters should effectively communicate their research to members of the audience
The poster presentations will be held Wednesday 12:30-14:00 at the University center Promenade A & B. Jury and people's choice prizes will be awarded. The ballot box will be located at the CASCA desk; poll closes 5pm Thursday. The results for both prizes will be announced Friday at the CASCA AGM and posters will remain in place for the rest of that afternoon for those who have not yet had a chance to see them.
The competition is open to everyone, including undergraduate and graduate students.
A Panel of judges will evaluate posters in person according to the criteria stated above. The judges will proclaim a winner and two honourable mentions. An ‘audience choice’ award will be decided by delegate votes.
The dimension of posters may not exceed 1728 square inches (eg. 36 x 48 inches). The title and text must be legible from a distance. Photos are welcome although not necessary.
