CHEMINAS Poster Award

The MicroTAS Conference announces the Young Researcher Poster Award Competition sponsored by The Society for Chemistry and Micro-Nano Systems (CHEMINAS) to recognize excellence among its participants. A select group of poster judges will select, on a daily basis, the best presented posters from the poster session. The winners and awards will be announced during the Awards Ceremony at the annual MicroTAS Conference.
