Poster presentations are a key component for communicating your research in engineering. A poster should be a snapshot of your work intended to engage colleagues in a dialog and encourage them to want to learn more about your research. This webinar is geared towards undergraduate and graduate students new to poster presentations. It will discuss how to best maximize the return on the time-consuming process of preparing and presenting an effective poster. The speakers will focus on how to create a high-quality visual poster presentation to effectively display your research, how to develop a concise and focused poster presentation, how to explain your research using schematics, graphs, and other visual strategies, with a minimum of supporting text, and various strategies to attract viewers and stimulate conversation.
