Instructions for Poster Awards

There will be poster awards in five categories. Below follow their descriptions, and instructions regarding the selection procedures.

1. The Programme Committee's Best Poster Award is chosen by the PC; there will be two awards.

2. The People's Choice Award is determined by general democratic vote; there will be two awards. Every registered participant has two votes, one for the Monday, another one for the Tuesday poster session. You find the two ballot cards in the conference pack; they bear your registration number to make sure that no-one votes more than once in each session. Just write the number of the poster (including the session: a for Monday, b for Tuesday) on the card and put it into the ballot box at the conference desk. (Example: '1729a' means poster number 1729 in the Monday session.) Deadline is Tuesday, 11 January, by the end of the poster session. The winners will be chosen according to majority, ties broken by random draw.

3. The Alice+Bob Award for Original Imagery is intended to honour inventive graphic design on the actual poster. The winner will be chosen by a secret committee, but every participant is invited to make nominations (preferably with attached picture) to qip2011@quantumlah.org, until Tuesday, 11 January, by the end of the poster session.

4.+ 5. The Most Hilarious Typo Award and the Massive Use of Acronyms Award (MUAA) may test the limits of your sense of humour. They also allow those who don't present a poster of their own to win something: Please send nominations (preferably with attached picture) to qip2011@quantumlah.org, until Tuesday, 11 January, by the end of the poster session. The winners will be chosen by a secret committee; note that there will be a prize in each of the two categories both for the winning poster and for the finder. Don't worry, no-one will make fun of you - at least not without your permission.

Awards (along with material prizes) will be presented at the conference social dinner on Wednesday evening. The nature of the actual prizes will be revealed then.
