Why present a poster?
There are several advantages to presenting a poster:
- Posters can be viewed throughout the Conference
- Viewers can “absorb” the presentation in their own time/way
- You can discuss your research at length with viewers on a one-to-one basis—and receive detailed feedback
- Presenting your research as a Poster is a wonderful opportunity to “network.” A poster serves to explain your research succinctly to colleagues within your own discipline and other related areas.
What is a poster?
A poster is a visual medium that you use to communicate a key idea related to your research: It presents that idea in verbal and graphic ways. Unlike an oral presentation, a poster does (most) of your talking—it should stand on its own, be self-explanatory (even as it enables conversations with viewers).
