What is PechaKucha?
PechaKucha is a presentation format where you have 20 slides, each on the screen for only 20 seconds. Your slides advance automatically so you have to keep up with the slides, as you won’t have control of the speed. Some tips on a good PechaKucha presentation – incorporate humor, a surprise or something that is unexpected. Bottom line, you want to entertain the team of judges as well as inform!
Why should you compete?
There will be three cash prizes - $250 for first place, $125 for second place and $75 for third place, but only graduate students and postdocs are eligible to compete.
How to sign up?
When you submit your abstract, please indicate that you want to compete during the submission process. Only seven people, as well as an additional three alternates, will be selected. Selection will be based on abstract quality, novelty, and content of the work. Be sure to submit your abstract and sign up early.

Poster Award Competition
ISAR will present awards for excellence in scientific poster presentations at the annual Conference. The awards will be presented to recognize young investigators for their outstanding contributions to antiviral research. Awards will be based on criteria including scientific excellence, innovative research methodology, clarity and organization of presentation materials, and competence of the investigator in responding to the poster audience. Award recipients will be chosen by the Poster Award Subcommittee, a panel of ISAR members; with first and second place prizes presented to the winners in the following categories:
Participants in the awards competition will identify the appropriate category on their electronic poster. Abstracts chosen for oral presentations will be eligible for an award if a poster is also submitted.
The International Society for Antiviral Research (ISAR) is an internationally recognized organization for scientists involved in basic, applied, and clinical aspects of antiviral research. The Society main event is the annual International Conference on Antiviral Research (ICAR), a truly interdisciplinary meeting which attracts the interest of chemists, biologists, and clinicians.
