Posters have Advantages over Talks!
Posters are considered to be inferior to an oral presentation by many people. Scientists attending conferences on theoretical and mathematical biology are no exception to this attitude. However, the poster medium affords certain strong advantages in communicating with one's colleagues.
Some advantages of a poster presentation:
A Poster (like an oral presentation) cannot (and should not!) contain all information on your research. Try to see posters as an advertisement for your work, rather than as a summary of it. To make an attractive poster presentation on our conference you may consider the following hints:
The size of the poster should be no more than 120 cm wide and 90 cm high!
Presenting your work
Be present when your poster is on display. Make yourself readily identifiable, for example by wearing the logo of your organisation. Bring business cards and hand-outs with you for interested delegates. The hand-outs will contain information about the methods used and summarize the results. Furthermore, they contain your complete address, including email.
A well prepared and delivered presentation is the essential, concluding chapter of your work. It ensures that others will recognize the relevance of the research and the importance of the conclusions. Put as much effort into communicating your work as you put into producing scientific work. Realize that however brillant your work may be, it will be lost if not properly communicated.
During the conference a `poster award committee' will view the posters and select the `best' poster. This lucky one will receive an award at the end of the conference.
The award is for the poster which best satisfies the following criteria:
