logoPostersISBR is very pleased to announce the prizes for the ISBR Poster Competition.
All accepted posters are eligible for the competition. The Institute for International Crop Improvement at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center (DDPSC) has generously sponsored prizes for the competition.
FIRST PRIZE is a trip to attend DDPSC’s Fall Science Symposium in St. Louis, MO, USA from Sept. 26-27, 2019
TWO RUNNER-UP PRIZES are one-year subscriptions to Nature Biotechnology + USD $300.

We encourage poster presenters to use the printing service provided by the conference venue. Submit your poster presentation for printing and transfer directly to the event and avoid traveling with your poster.
How does the printing work? It’s easy! Follow the link provided below and then fill in the form data for the request before Monday, March 25th, 2019.

We print your posters with photographic quality on matt coated quality paper of 150grs. This way we avoid reflections caused by light when they are placed in the exhibition area of the congress. Measurements for the posters are “Portrait Format”, so 120cm in height and 90cm in width. 
This service has a cost of 40€.
