Student Information



Student Poster Prizes

A number of poster presentation prizes are awarded at each conference (see “Past Award Winners” page). Each poster has at least one judge allocated, who will usually be an invited international or local speaker. Each judge has approximately 7-9 posters to assess. The judge will assess each poster presentation on scientific content, visual clarity and quality of verbal communication. The best poster presentation as determined by each judge will be awarded a poster prize.

Student 'Meet and Greet' with Invited Speakers

Student delegates were invited to attend the ‘Meet and Greet’ with Invited Speakers on Tuesday 7th February from 1:00 pm. This function provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet world leading international and local protein scientists. We understand that it can be very intimidating to ask questions of such eminent scientists or to divert them from in depth conversations, so as with the 2016 function, a number of early career researchers will be available to facilitate discussions, hopefully making this an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone. Make sure you come along with some questions in mind for the speakers. Also, there will be short presentations from guest speakers. Please note this event is free but is often booked out. If you haven’t received a ticket but would like to attend please visit the registration desk in case of cancellations.
