Poster presentations

CHAINS 2017 works with the following simple poster guidelines:

  • Deadline for poster submission is 2 October 2017;
  • Posters are presented by PhD students, postdocs and/or Master students;
  • Poster requirements: portrait posters only of maximum A0 size;
  • You are asked to submit your poster title and some relevant keywords online when registering for CHAINS 2017. The information as provided in your registration form is considered as final and will be processed in CHAINS 2017 communication tools;
  • When registering you are also asked to indicate to which of the three main strategic research lines, plus to which of the fifteen chemistry study group research area(s) your project matches the best. This serves as basis for clustering of relevant posters.

Bear in mind that your poster refers to the people involved, includes their institutions/organizations, and is accompanied by the appropriate acknowledgements, logos etc. If the reported research is supported by NWO, it is highly appreciated to include the project number (and subsidy) and the NWO logo (downloadable from NWO website). If applicable, clearance for publication of your poster abstract must be requested well before the submission deadline.


Additional information and exposure
  • Circa 600 posters in total can be accommodated over the three conference days;
  • Poster presentations are divided as follows over the conference days:
    • 5 December (+ morning 6 December): posters with fit to the ‘Chemistry of Life’ strategic research line;
    • 7 December (+ afternoon 6 December): posters with fit to the ‘Chemistry of Materials’ and ‘Chemical Conversion’ strategic research lines;
  • At CHAINS 2017 a poster jury will select several outstanding posters for a prize to be awarded partly on Tuesday, 5 December in the evening and on Thursday, 7 December in the afternoon. The jury judges on matters like the attractiveness of the poster in general, the clarity and quality of the research and results, and the oral presentations during the regular poster.

Prizes are only awarded to winning poster presenters present at the prize ceremony.
