6.4.2. Reading. A poster presentation.

Here are some pieces of good advice on conference poster presentations.

A poster is not a research article; you have to carefully select what information your poster includes. Focus on the main message or key finding that you would like to present to the audience. Look for a layout that will attract the attention of you target audience. In other word, think about features that would make your poster stand out from among the dozens of other posters presented at a conference poster session.

Your poster should include the following parts: title, name and affiliation of author. The next part, although optional, could be your abstract, followed by the introduction and the methodology section. After these parts, you present your results. In a conference poster, focus on the visual representation of your results. Discuss your results. In the end, summarize your findings and / or draw conclusions.
