A poster presentation is the presentation of research at a conference, symposium, or other type of academic or professional meeting. Presenters, either individually or in groups, typically stand at their poster and answer questions from audience members and/or a panel of judges. Posters are used to present research in many disciplines ranging from Biomedicine to the Arts and Humanities. Overall, posters should be easy to read and contain only the most important information such as evidence, methods, and conclusions.
Posters can be printed and displayed, displayed digitally on a screen, or hosted online depending on the modality of the meeting. Whether printed or digital-only, authors need to ensure that their content is legible, undistorted, and reflects the seriousness of their research.
Although there is no one standard for poster presentations, there are certain guidelines that are helpful to follow:
