How Do I Create a Poster?

A poster presentation is a visual display of research findings that is typically presented at academic conferences or professional meetings. Poster presentations are a great way to share your research with a large audience and to engage in one-on-one conversations with other researchers.

Posters can be presented in person as a printed large format (usually 3’ by 4’) or digitally.

What makes an effective poster?

  • Easy to read – font size should not be too small
  • Eye catching – images and text should draw attention
  • Concise – text should extract the important ideas and summarize your findings
