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 message, a text format optimized for the best possible 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 compelling. 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.

To profit the most from this workshop, participants are invited to bring material (text, images, graphs etc.) of their current research work or recently designed posters.

If you are particularly interested to gain knowledge in general-purpose applications of communication design, sign up for the workshop Design Basics for Scientists.


You can register for the event one month before the event starts from 9am
