Poster Awards @ ISC 2018

At the upcoming 32nd International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC 2018) in Cannes-Mandelieu, France two Best Poster Award competitions are organized.

The AFSEP Award

This award is arranged on behalf of the AFSEP (Association Francophone des Sciences Séparatives, the French-speakingsociety of separation sciences) which organization is sponsoring three best poster prizes (300 Euro each). The awards are intended for young scientists who will deliver a short oral (3-minutes) presentation of their work in three parallel sessions at the end of Monday, September 24, 17h30 – 18h15. The presenters have been selected according to their rankings resulting from the evaluation of the abstracts submitted by young scientists by the symposium International and National Scientific Committees. In each of these sessions,a review panel will be attending consisting of 3-4 peers, the chairmen of the preceding session and the symposium chairs. It is intended that each review panel will deliver their nomination immediately after these sessions.

The ISC 2018 Best Poster Award

Presentation of scientific work on a poster is an efficient way to disseminate and discuss with peers, progress in the understanding of fundamental aspects, new instrumental methods and applications of chromatography and other separation sciences especially for young scientists.

The poster sessions are an important part of the ISC series. Therefore, all posters will be available during the whole symposium to allow a thorough and comprehensive discussion.

An international panel of scientists, chaired by Gerard Rozing, will review the posters in the Best Poster Award (BPA) competition by the following criteria:

  • Novelty, originality, and creativity of the work
  • The scope of the work, the technical quality of experimental design and execution of experiments,
  • Presentation of the work on the poster. Special emphasis will be the presence and explanation of the authors during their designated poster session
  • Impact of the work like the potential for innovation, on progressing separation science, on economic and societal aspects, and its use in science teaching


Shimadzu offers 5 awards (300 Euro each).
The centre de compétences en Chimie et Toxicologie Analytiques (ccCTA) offers one award (300 Euro) to a young scientist with a poster in the field of biological/pharmaceutical analysis.
Springer Verlag offers 5 book vouchers (200 Euro each) on behalf of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and Chromatographia.

All poster awards will be presented to the winners during the closing ceremony on Thursday, September 27.
