A poster session is a graphic presentation of an author’s research. Authors illustrate their study findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams, and a small amount of text on poster boards.
Poster presentation can be submitted by scholars and MA/PhD students. The poster size should be A1 (59.4 x 84.1 cm). This size meets the requirements for most conferences. All posters will be displayed in a single one-hour session. Poster presenters are required to be present with their poster during the session.
- Sections and sequence of materials should be clearly indicated but kept simple. Ideally, a well-constructed poster will be self-explanatory, understandable to the viewer, freeing the presenter from answering obvious questions. Presenters can thus be available to supplement and discuss particular points of interest.
- Successful poster presentations are those which achieve coverage and clarity but also display an uncluttered and straightforward design.
- Arrows clearly indicating the flow of information from introduction to conclusion are always helpful.
- The focus should be on major findings and not on everything you know.
