Student Poster Competition

SCS Annual Conference - Student Poster Competition

One of our guiding principles is “Advancing the Science of Cosmetics”, and to celebrate this, we are now inviting students to participate in the Students Poster Competition.

The Students Poster Competition is an important part of our annual conference. It provides a platform for students and scientists, new to the field of cosmetic science, to present their work to the conference attendees. Students entering the competition get free entry to the conference, and a chance to win a cash prize (£500).

How to enter:

Submit an abstract describing your work to the Conference Scientific Programme (SP) Committee.

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday 31st July 2024.

Abstracts must be submitted in English (maximum 500 words, no tables/graphs in the abstract). The abstract should describe an original piece of scientific work and must not have been previously published or submitted to any other conference.

Original research undertaken for commercial purposes is welcome, as long as it has sufficient scientific merit. Abstracts and posters should use chemical names as far as possible and avoid direct promotion of any products or services.

Open to all full-time students based at UK Universities (undergraduates/post-graduates /post-doctoral scientists). Applicants don’t need to have studied cosmetic science degrees but abstracts must be related to cosmetic science.

All abstracts will be evaluated by a jury of experts of the Scientific Programme Committee.

Results will be communicated to authors as soon as possible to allow them to make travel plans, and before Wednesday 31st July 2024. Roughly 10-15 pieces of work will be chosen to be presented at the Conference.
