These rules are based on those developed by The University of Melbourne for the VYT Competition. Entries not following these rules and the Technical Instructions may be disqualified.


You should note that due to the nature of the competition, any data or information presented in your ePoster should be considered information that will likely enter the public domain, for example, on the University's websites, The University of Melbourne’s VYT website (winning entry only), etc. You should discuss with your research supervisors before submitting your ePoster.


In particular, you should discuss your entry and potential implications for prior publication, patent and grant applications, and intellectual property (IP) rights and responsibilities. If you are working on team-based projects, collaborative projects with your supervisors, or on ongoing programmes in large research centres or labs, you need to be aware of, and respect, the IP rights and responsibilities of all individuals involved.
