Content Outline:
Scientific posters – vividly summarised – are the ideal form of presentation to effectively
communicate research to a conference audience, stimulate discussion and make important contacts.
To draw your audience in, you need a clear content structure, a text format optimized for
best readability and well-chosen graphics. Above all, you need to think carefully about how to organize
your research contents on the required A0-paper format.

Basic principles of graphic design and layout techniques will help you to present your research visually
perfectly organized and eye-catching. The course will equip you with both the concepts and the practical
design skills to compellingly design or redesign your poster during the practise session.
At the end of the workshop, you receive useful feedback from group and trainer, to know how to further
improve, optimize, and finalise your poster drafts.

Veranstaltungsort:  This workshop will take place online
