How to get most out of your poster presentation

  • Posters should stimulate interest rather than provide a detailed presentation. A poster can only contain a limited amount of information you have on the topic; don’t try to be exhaustive!
  • The standard poster format follows an oral presentation format, including an introduction, methods, results, conclusions and recommendations.
  • All posters should feature a title, the author’s name, the institution where the research was performed, and the logo, and should credit other contributors.
  • Put your contact information on the poster, so people can follow up with you.
  • Use a simple font and differentiate between titles, subtitles, and body text. Try to replace, where possible, text with visuals, schemes, and flow-charts. A balanced proportion of text, photos, and graphics is most appealing.
  • Pick a reader-friendly color scheme.
  • You are allowed to bring A4-sized handouts of your poster, that you can hang at your poster spot and/or hand out to conference participants that show interest.
  • Stay near your poster at the allotted time slot, as people may be looking for you to ask questions about your poster. Also check your poster regularly during other breaks to allow people to ask you questions.
  • Take a pro-active attitude near your poster, present yourself as the author and show that you are available for discussions.
