Designing Conference Posters (ESD MPhil) new [Places] 11:00 - 12:00 Department of Engineering, Room to be confirmed

Conference posters are a simple, visual, and effective way of sharing your research. They may be presented at academic or professional conferences, Departmental events, or educational events for the general public. A well-designed poster allows you to communicate information about your work in a concise and appealing manner, and engage with colleagues, peers and others in a conversational setting.

Creating a conference poster is a balancing act between including enough detail to effectively describe your work, and keeping it visually attractive and minimal enough that people can understand at least the main points at a glance.

This module will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.
