Comment/Description

Scientific posters – vividly summarised – are the ideal form of presentation to effectively
communicate research to a conference audience, stimulate discussion and make important contacts.

To draw your audience in, you need a clear content structure, a text format optimized for
best readability and well-chosen graphics. Above all, you need to think carefully about how to organize
your research contents on the required A0-paper format.

Basic principles of graphic design and layout techniques will help you to present your research
visually perfectly organized and eye-catching. The course will equip you with both the concepts
and the practical design skills to compellingly design your own poster during the practise session.
At the end of the workshop, you receive useful feedback from group and trainer, in order to know how to further improve, optimize and finalise your poster draft.
