Workshop 2

Creating an amazing scientific poster
Workshop by Toon Verlinden (The Floor is Yours)

How can you stand out in a room with hundreds of other scientific posters? How do you get the most out of what may seem like a rather useless activity? In this workshop we will show you how to build up a strong scientific poster, step by step. A poster that is clear, that is actually being read by your audience and that adds value for both you and your audience.

What we will cover amongst other things:

    • How do you get your audience’s attention? (Why should they listen to you?)
    • Your poster pitch in one minute
    • Your poster layout
    • How to summarize a 30 page paper down to a single poster
    • Examples of successful research posters
    • Designing a poster and where to find good images
