As every year, 4 Poster Awards were made at AE2017 – The AE2017 Best Poster Award, the AE2017 Best Student Poster Award, the EAS_Student Group Ibrahim Okumus Award and the AE2017 Lindsay Laird Award. For the two AE Awards, the posters of each session were assessed by the session chairs, and the best student poster and best poster for each session were attributed. These were then reviewed by the AE2017 Programme co-chairs Snježana Zrnčić (Croatian Vet Institute) and Constantinos Mylonas (HCMR, Greece), to select the overall winners.
