All abstracts will be scored on an NIH scale and four components: scientific content, innovation/significance, clarity of the concept, and presentation of the concept. Each component will receive a score from 1 to 9 (1= highest and 9=lowest) and the scores will be combined for a total score. Each abstract will be reviewed by one immunologist and one computational biologist. The scores of the judges will be averaged and the trainees with the three lowest average scores will receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd, respectively (three prizes for grad students, three prizes for postdocs/research associates).The NIH scale is as follows: 1= Exceptional, 2= Outstanding, 3= Excellent, 4= Very Good, 5= Good, 6= Satisfactory, 7= Fair, 8= Marginal, 9= Poor
