Poster Presentation Success: How to Prepare and Present a Winning Poster

Preparing a poster presentation provides a great opportunity to connect with potential collaborators and employers. The key to success is optimizing your time before, during and after the session, and really taking advantage of the eyeballs on your poster to build a strong network and develop job leads. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the elements of a successful poster and how to deliver a meaningful presentation. You will learn how to craft your value statement and talking points, and how to effectively engage those who stop by. You’ll also discover how to utilize social media to build buzz around you and your research endeavors, and how to follow up on the connections you make.

Some of what you will learn: What is the best format for your results: research article or rapid communication? What file formats are preferred? When should you use supplementary material? How do you effectively work with co-authors? What are the ethical guidelines for authors, reviewers and editors?
