Preparing your Poster

In preparing your poster, emphasis should be given to the visual impact and format to capture your presentation. Posters can be an excellent method to communicate your recent innovative research. In preparing your poster, please do not attempt to detail your entire research or project history. Present only enough data to support conclusions or to explain the points you wish to make. Diagrams and photographs are a much more effective way of presenting data than text. The aim of the posters is to put across a simple message in an eye-catching manner.
