Posters combine text and graphics to make a visually pleasing presentation. Typically, a poster session involves showing your work at a conference or seminar. This can take place in one large room, several smaller rooms, or in an exhibit hall. Posters should quickly and efficiently communicate your scholarly presentation to viewers. Poster Sessions allow viewers to study and restudy your information and discuss it with you one on one. Some conferences require short presentations on the findings every ten or fifteen minutes.
Some helpful resources for developing posters are available at the following websites:
