Research posters concisely and attractively summarize information or research to help publicize the body of work and generate discussion. A poster usually includes brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants view the presentation and interact with the author. When drafting a poster, you should ask yourself 3 questions:
- What is the most important/interesting/astounding finding from my research project?
- How can I visually share my research with conference attendees? Should I use charts, graphs, photos, images?
- What kind of information can I convey during my talk that will complement my poster?
