The selection was based on the criteria as defined by EMS, namely:

  • Scientific quality;
  • Innovativeness of the approach;
  • Potential impacts of the results;
  • Presentation aspects, including clarity of the message to readers of the poster.

This poster presented some complex and innovative science in a clear, concise and attractive way. The judges were looking for excellent presentation but also some very good and innovative science, as the EMS is a scientific organisation. This poster provided both and was the unanimous winner by the whole panel.
