Award 2016

At the 29th World Conference of Insurance Medicine, May 22-25 2016, Maastricht, awards were given for best conference posters. All poster presenters competed.

ICLAM Bureau members were invited to assess the abstracts on criteria like relevance, importance, newness, validity and quality of the evidence, presentation, and research.

  1. Relevance of the manuscript to the conference’s scope and audience, on a scale from 1 to 5, from very low to very high importance.
  2. Importance of the message/conclusion to most of the conference audience, on a scale from 1 to 5.
  3. Newness of the abstract’s message, on a scale from 1 to 5, from old news to groundbreaking.
  4. Assess the validity of data, method, analysis, and results presented, on a scale from 1 to 5, from problematic to valid. For other studies than original research or systematic reviews the score will be adjusted afterwards by maximizing the possible score.
  5. Quality of Presentation (Organization, language, clarity), on a scale from 1 to 5, from confusing, difficult to follow to logical, clear. Please do not rate an abstract as too difficult to follow if you do not have sufficient knowledge of methods, analysis or clinical epidemiology to assess the technical part of the abstract.
  6. Optional: Recommendation and comments.
