Micro & Nano 2015 Best Contribution Awards

Two types of best contribution awards were attributed to Micro&Nano participants:

  • > A Best Oral Presentation Award for each day of the conference
  • > A Best Poster Award for each poster session

For the oral presentation award, a 3-member evaluation Committee was used. The same was done for the selection of the best poster of each session. The committees were composed of the following scientists:

  • Orals
  • Alain Claverie
  • Sokrates Pantelides
  • Spyros Gardelis
  • Isabelle Berbezier
  • Matthias Bucher
  • Ioanna Zergioti
  • Jose Miguel Garcia-Martin
  • Panagiotis Dimitrakis
  • John Xanthakis

  • Posters
  • Matthew Zervos
  • Christos Tsamis
  • Hanna Badarenka
  • Vasileios Constantoudis
