Eligible posters must be included in the Sci-Mix at national ACS meetings (see below for details)
The POLY Outstanding Poster Award (sponsored by Cambridge University Press) was established to increase the importance and visibility of posters being presented at ACS National Meetings in the POLY section. It is recognized that a great deal of work goes into preparing and presenting a high quality poster. Cambridge University Press and POLY wish to acknowledge and reward such efforts. The award is presented at the POLY/PMSE award event on Wednesday evening of national ACS meetings. Up to 4 awards may be made at each meeting.
Award: Awardees will receive a certificate and $250. The award shall be granted to an individual without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
Eligibility: Poster presenters must be current PhD students, postdocs, or industrial scientists at equivalent levels. To be eligible for the award, select “Consider for Sci-Mix” during abstract submission through the MAPS system. Sci-Mix is a meeting-wide poster event held Monday and includes posters from all divisions; presenters participate in Sci-Mix in addition to the poster session in their division. Alternatively, symposia organizers may nominate “best posters” from those submitted to be included in Sci-Mix, at discretion of organizers (and not to exceed 10% of all poster submissions). Eligible posters will then be judged during the Sci-Mix poster session at the national ACS meeting. Winners selected based on their contribution to the work, the quality and impact of their research, and their poster presentation, and communication skills.
