Designing Conference Posters (Engineering) new Tue 7 May 2019   14:00 Finished

An RDC session for first year PhD students (Division D)

This session will look at key design principles and useful resources for creating a visually appealing conference poster that will stand out from the crowd, engage your audience and tell your story. With real-life examples, you can learn what to do and what not to do when making your conference posters.

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 online resource will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.
