WHAT IS A POSTER SESSION?
Poster sessions are a common feature of professional conferences, especially in fields where research and innovation play a major part. In general, posters presentations are less structured than a paper presentation, but they allow for greater and more detailed exchange of information and personal contact between the presenters and their audience.
The posters are typically set up in a designated room or area where conference attendees can walk around and look at all of them and speak with the presenters one-on-one about their work. Presenters may have handouts that summarize or expand upon the poster content
WHY WOULD I PRESENT A POSTER?
You can use a poster to quickly and effectively report findings from a recent study or project, discuss program outcomes and give updates on work in progress, or announce the launch of a new initiative. Well-designed posters convey important points and ideas quickly, and poster sessions are especially good at stimulating substantive interactions with your audience. If you’ve ever wished there was more time for Q&A during a panel, or wished you could just let your data speak for itself, a poster session is ideal. If you have a questionnaire to distribute or are seeking survey participants, poster sessions are a great place for that too!
POSTER GUIDANCE AND TEMPLATES
Poster sessions are a vital element of any scientific conference, providing attendees with the opportunity to browse important projects and topics and engage with lead authors directly.
To make posters more accessible for attendees with accessibility needs and English as a second language, please consider:
- Big figures and text
- Less clutter
- Plain language
- Clear reading order
