Research Posters

Scientists share their findings (often before they are otherwise published) by attending scientific conferences and presenting talks or posters. Conferences generally have poster sessions where many posters will be set up in a room and attendees can walk around and view the posters that interest them. The poster presenter generally stands by their poster to explain their work or discuss ideas with attendees who view the poster. This is a great way for scientists to quickly share the basic concepts of their projects with others who are particularly interested in it and to exchange ideas one on one. Thus posters need to be visually appealing, easy to read and understand, and simplify their work to the most important concepts/findings. Work presented in posters does not need to be complete and is often ongoing current research.
