Starting point

Poster sessions are an integral part of nearly 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 message on the huge A0 format. Basic rules of design will help you to present your research in a visually well organized and appealing way. In this training you will learn to pre-structure your research efficiently and how to best create your own poster and put the lessons of the course directly into practice.


Acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to design an eye-catching and self-explanatory scientific poster. If you come well prepared, you may come away from the training with a finalized poster.
