Clear at Glance – Designing Effective Academic Posters
Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them, and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear structure, a text format optimized for the best readability and well-chosen graphics. And above all, you need to think well through how to organize your research content on the required paper or e-poster format.
Basic rules of graphic design and layout technique will help you to present your research visually well organized and eye-catching. The course will equip you with both the concepts and the practical design skills and provides the possibility to put directly into practice what you have learned as well as to get useful feedback from group and trainer.
