AWARDS


During the first Advanced in Computational Biology Conference, we are pleased to announce that a number of prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentations. These awards are given to acknowledge the quality of these presentations and to encourage excellence in the dissemination of computational biology research. The awards will be presented after an assessment conducted by a panel of judges. Oral presentations will be scored by the session chairs, and posters evaluated by peer evaluation. Scores will be based on the following criteria: 

Oral Presentations

The best oral presentation in each of the thematic tracks will be awarded a laptop computer courtesy of HP Women in Technology.

Oral presentations are to be assessed both on the scientific merit of the research and on the ability of the presenter to convey the research to the audience.

  • The written abstract is part of the judging process, assigned 15 points. The abstract should be well written, with sufficient detail and a good representation of the work presented.
  • Content of the presentation is assigned 35 points. Factors considered include the quality and interest of the introduction, organization, clarity of aims and results and the scientific merit of the study.
  • Presentation style and delivery are assigned 30 points. This includes the pace, vocal clarity, language and grammar, poise and confidence, rapport and eye contact with the audience, quality, and relevance of the visuals.
