Most Promising Proposal MPP
Anyone who has not defended his or her PhD prior to the first conference day (July 2, 2014) is eligible for this award. The goal is to present a project proposal which includes the investigation of load distribution on the human or animal body. The topic area can be freely chosen and a document of maximum 2 pages (excl. reference list) can be submitted to the session chair one hour before the award session starts (7 printed copies have to be provided). No prior disclosure of the title, topic area or any details of the proposed study are allowed. Proposals fitting the requirements will be presented in a separate award session on the 3rd day of ESM 2014. The main author will have 3 minutes for presentation of the study background, concept and plan followed by a 3-min discussion. The presentation should be only verbal, no slides or posters are allowed. The award committee will consist of 3 members of the scientific committee plus 3 randomly selected ad hoc members. The winner will be the most innovative, relevant and most convincingly presented proposal. The winner will be presented at the final conference banquet. The prize money is US $1,000.
Abstracts for poster presentations in the field of load distribution measurement not participating in the art in science award must be submitted by March 14, 2014. Participants will be informed of presentation acceptance by April 7, 2014.
Award for the Best Poster will be presented and the award recipient will receive US $1,000.
The poster should be in A0 (841 x 1189 mm) format with the text not smaller than font size 32. The title and authors, with affiliations, should be clearly stated.
