SCOT Meeting Prizes

There is a Registrar Free Paper session at both the Winter and Summer SCOT. Abstract Submission is organised by Professor Simpson’s team in Edinburgh. It is announced via an email from four regional TPDs. Abstracts are marked by a panel, representative of all the regions.

During each meeting, the presentations are marked by a panel representing all regions. Invited keynote speakers are sometimes also invited to joint the judging panel. Presentations are scored on a combination of content, presentation, contribution to research and handling of questions.

For Summer 2020, an additional e-Poster session was provided and published on the website. These were also marked by the panel using the criteria of content, layout/presentation and contribution.
