PhD students often face the challenge to present scientific posters at meetings. The generation of adequate posters is usually not a matter of just a few hours. Special care has to be taken to adjust contents and design to a typical brief presentation in a poster session. How to make a poster attractive and scientifically correct at the same time? This is one of many questions that will be dealt with in this workshop.

Workshop topics:

  • Aims of poster presentations
  • The anatomy of scientific posters: Vital parts and add-ons
  • Preparations to be taken ahead of the generation of posters
  • Evaluation of “suboptimal“ posters: What makes a bad poster?
  • The essentials of a good poster
  • Participants generate drafts of important poster parts: Title, Introduction, Conclusion
  • How to present a poster and how not to present a poster
