An important part of the Triological Society meetings are the poster sessions and the “Meet the Authors” poster receptions, which give attendees the opportunity to discuss the research and clinical posters with the authors. Posters were judged in several categories by program committee members during the poster session. Nine poster authors, out of 112 posters, were recognized for their outstanding work. The prize-winning posters were designated with award ribbons during the poster reception, and the authors received cash awards.
