General news


SLLS has awarded the SLLS Best Poster Prize to the following three posters presented at TISLR10:

We congratulate all winners with their prize, and encourage everyone to take another look at their posters in the Poster Archive.

At the subsequent TISLR conferences, a Poster Prize Committee will be installed and will judge the posters at the event. This first time the posters have been evaluated by the current board members. The following criteria applied:
a. Presentation of new and innovative research
b. Good explanation of the research questions / themes, approach, and outcomes
c. Clear design with optimal use of graphics
d. Optimal accessibility to people not familiar with the sign language under investigation (if applicable) (“Don’t assume that people will know the ASL sign APPLE.”)
