Poster Design Tips

Poster sessions are informal, allowing you to share your work on a one-to-one basis, somewhat like an information fair.  A good poster centers on a main theme, presents useful information, and stimulates discussion. You may incorporate signs, graphs and other print material and personal technology in your presentation, as described in poster delivery.

Don't forget to upload a digital copy of your poster to the digital poster gallery for this event. Your poster and good work will be on display long after the event concludes. Be sure to cite the URL on your resume.
