The Poster Speaks for Itself: Designing Academic Posters for Conferences
One of the first and most accessible tools available to researchers for the presentation of their research are the academic posters exhibited at conferences. Most of the researchers exhibit a poster of their own design, without having understood critical basic design issues, first and foremost, designing the text to make it accessible, inviting, clear and legible for the observer walking past the poster.
Participants who complete the workshop successfully will be familiar with the principle of designing an academic poster, will be able to analyze a poster’s design and to implement these principles in order to improve a poster for the presentation of their own materials.
