The poster session is a standard part of most academic conferences. Participation offers you the opportunity to showcase your research to a select, but highly relevant audience. However, it is important that your poster will be seen, read and remembered. To that end you need clear choices about what to add and what to leave out, an attractive design and appealing texts.
During this training you work on the design of your own poster. The first session is all about the design of the poster. We talk about strategy goal, audience, message, and setting and translate this into a layout. Special attention is given to the visualisation of your most important messages and finding a good title. After this first session, you create a first draft using our tutorial as a homework assignment. If necessary you can ask for our assistance.
The second session is about the finishing touch. We discuss topics such as fonts, colours, graphs and photos. You apply what you learn to improve your own poster. Finally you export the poster to pdf and present it to the group.
This training consists of theory, instruction, group discussions, exercises (both on paper and the computer), and a home work assignment. You will receive a lot of personal feeback and tips from the trainer.
