Poster creation & design (A8R)

Using posters to disseminate research is increasingly popular, and not just in the sciences. Good posters are clear, easy to understand and make new topics a pleasure to discover; but a bad poster creates a poor impression.

This session's tips and techniques will help your poster make a successful impact.

By the end of the workshop you will have:

  • thought about your target audience and how to adapt your poster accordingly
  • considered what to include on a poster and what to leave out
  • looked at posters created by previous students and discussed their good and bad points
  • discussed the best way to present your poster
  • gained some feedback on a poster that you are creating.
