The ICS Scientific Committee honours the highest scoring abstracts every year. There are four prizes awards, two based directly on the abstract content and two based on the presentation of the abstract at the annual meeting.
Scores are awarded by the ICS Scientific Committee Members, External Reviewers and Scientific Session Chairs. Abstracts are judged in each of the following categories:
- Scientific Merit
- Originality / Topicality
- Clinical Relevance
The prize certificate and award of €1000 is presented by the Chairman of the
Annual Meeting at the closing ceremony to the abstract author.
