Poster Awards

Poster Awards were established in 2016 by the Board of Directors as a way to help recognize exceptional work presented by those in the early stages of their careeers - students (graduate and under graduate), residents, trainees and post docs.

Posters are judged by members of the Board of Directors, SPAC, Chairs of the SIG Sessions and other leaders in various fields of neurology. The top 10 scoring posters on each of the two presentation days (Sunday and Monday) are awarded $250 each. Posters are scored based on the following criteria:
