CNS Poster Competition

Graduate students and other trainees are encouraged to submit abstracts for consideration in the Poster Competition. Trainees must enter the Poster Competition at the time of abstract submission to the annual CNS conference. This competition will be part of the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) Annual Conference.

In order to be eligible for consideration, competitors must be a graduate student, post-degree dietetic intern, or medical resident; individuals already holding a PhD degree are NOT eligible. Students and trainees must register for the conference as a trainee and provide evidence for their trainee status as per conference guidelines. Students/trainees and their supervisors must both be CNS members in good standing. Those who are not already members must also submit an application with the necessary supporting documentation to CNS by the abstract deadline date. Students/trainees should not have won a national or international competition in the past, and must not submit the same work for another major competition. By entering the competition, students/trainees are signifying that they are aware of the requirements and deadlines and will work to meet them in a professional manner.

A maximum of eight (8) students/trainees will be selected, from the abstracts received, to participate in the Poster Compeition. Further judging of the eight (8) finalists will take place at the CNS Annual Conference.
