Posters - Competition

Posters sessions allow doctoral students and young researchers to present their research in the form of a poster to an international audience.

Indeed, posters sessions are an informal and interactive way to present current research to a large audience, and to obtain constructive feedback and comments.

The selected posters will be exhibited for a few days during the congress, in order to provide them with a wide audience.


A jury composed of members of the IEHA executive committee will evaluate the posters and award a prize of 250 Euros and books to the best poster.

The IEHA gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Cambridge University Press in supplementing the Poster prizes with gift books from their extensive economic history catalog to prize winners and finalists.
