Unformatted text preview: constraints everything is concise and focused on few points.
At a conference, your poster competes for attention with dozens or hundreds of other posters. Colorful
backgrounds (careful not to overdo it), photographs, etc. can help to make the person walking by stop and
start reading. Then you have to take advantage of the opportunity and keep their interest by telling your
story without being too superficial nor being too detailed. Keep font size large, try to convey information in
graphs and summarize the results in a few important conclusions.
Your poster will be graded on the basis of the following points:
structure, content, and length;
– data presentation, including graph type;
– use of the data to test the predictions and evaluate the hypotheses. Overall layout
