What is a Poster Session? Poster Sessions are held in a large space where all participants present a visual display (a poster) explaining their research. Posters are less formal than paper presentations, and are great opportunities for you to present your work, get feedback on your ideas, method and conclusions, and talk one on one with others about the work you are doing. Posters allow presenters to have more time with the audience and interact with numerous persons.  You can use a poster session to present and discuss a work-in-progress before developing final conclusions for presentation in a more formal paper session. Students are especially encouraged to submit a poster presentation. Poster session participants create a graphic presentation to be displayed, explained and discussed during the poster session. Posters can be large (as large as 5 x 7’ although 3 x 4’ is standard) and contain much less text that an oral paper. Most posters are on one page of paper. Some presenters create posters in pieces and assemble them at the conference. This can come in handy if you must travel a long distance to the conference as poster tubes can sometimes be tricky to handle. Need some help on developing your poster?
