CERF Best Poster Award

Best Poster Award Program was established in 2015 to recognize excellence in the dissemination and the presentation of ESL research at the Annual CERF Technical Meeting & Affiliates Dinner

The award is designed to:

  • Promote interest in the dissemination of EM and RF research
     
  • Increase the quality of poster presentations
     
  • Acknowledge excellence in this valuable medium.

The award is presented annually to the poster presenters receiving the most number of votes for first place (Best Poster) and second place. The authors of the first and second best posters receive a cash prize of $200 and $100, respectively. Each author and co-author of the first and second place posters receive a certificate acknowledging their successful poster presentation.
