Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th October 2017 | Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Poster sessions took place on both days of VS8. Everyone attending this year’s event was invited to present a poster which could be on work related to any of this year’s meeting topics or any aspect of vacuum in general.
This year the Vacuum Symposium Poster Prizes (£100 and certificate on both days) were sponsored by the IOP Vacuum Group and Leybold.
Posters were judged on the basis of scientific content, effectiveness of communication and overall appearance.
