BDQ is proud to sponsors three "BDQ Poster Awards"

The new open access journal Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is proud to sponsor three "BDQ Poster Awards" at the qPCR dPCR & NGS 2017 event.
The posters will be evaluated by an international jury on the basis of originality of the approach; quality of the work (e.g. appropriate methodology, interpretation of results, conclusiveness); quality of the presentation (e.g. clarity, response to questions); and self-reliance and independence (not one of co-authors, but the most active, if more than one author).

Eligible for the BDQ Poster Award:  The contest is open to students and early career scientists.

Award Presentation:  BDQ Editor-in-Chief Stephen Bustin will award the three poster prizes on Wednesday afternoon directly after the lunch break April 5, 2017  (1:45 pm) in HS 15
  • BDQ Poster Award - First Prize              The winner is awarded 300 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  • BDQ Poster Award – Second Prize       The winner is awarded 200 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  • BDQ Poster Award – Third Prize            The winner is awarded 100 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
Procedure for Application:  Authors will be able to express their interest in participating in the "BDQ Poster Award" during the poster session on Monday 3rd April. Note that authors are only able to participate if their paper has been selected as a poster by the conference organizer.
