Following two dimensions will be taken into account while selecting the best posters :

 Research substance: The originality and quality of the research idea as well as the methodology adopted in execution and the interpretation of the results. 

 Presentation: The poster and the poster presenter will be assessed for their ability to convey the research and its results to the poster audience. Poster design and the presenter’s quality of communication will be important consideration. 

The winners will be awarded with a certificate during the valedictory function on 7th April 2017.
