Conference 2018: Rapid-fire talk and poster prize winners

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

The RSS conference poster exhibition gives early career researchers the opportunity to present their research at conference, and talk about their work with conference attendees.

Last year, we introduced a new rapid-fire talks section for those new to presenting their research, where each speaker had five-minutes to present their research. This section proved so popular we integrated it as a key part of the conference. 

In both cases, the best presentations are rewarded with book voucher prizes worth hundreds of pounds.

Thanks to all of those who participated in the poster exhibition and the rapid-fire talks section, the judges, our sponsors and many congratulations to the winners!
