Poster session "State Of The Art"
On behalf of the organizers we cordially invite to participate in the POSTER SESSION “STATE OF THE ART” which is organized by the Student Science Organization of NTUU “KPI”. The Poster Session will be held at the NTUU “KPI” on August 7, 2015.
A poster session is the presentation of research information with the help of a poster. It’s one of the best ways to present yourself and your research in a favorable light, make contacts, and get useful feedback.
What are the differences between a poster session and a common performance on conferences that we are used to? Typically, on conferences you simply recite theses which you have learned by heart beforehand and answer some feeble questions from audience. But a poster session is definitely another thing. That is when you stand near your poster and scientists or lecturers can come up to your place and discuss your research with you. So you need to capture their attention and communicate your message quickly and succinctly.
Why is this way of presentation more effective? It should be noted, during a poster session you learn to communicate with scientists and lecturers academically and prove your point of view, find weak and strong spots in you research, receive valuable tips from true professionals in that area and just gain great experience of performing.
One of the most important components of a poster session is a poster itself which must conform to standards.
Design and layout specifications
- The entire poster will be printed on A0-A1 sheets of hard paper.
- The board must be oriented in either landscape position.
- A banner displaying your poster title, name, and department (or class, if appropriate) should be positioned at top-center of the board.
- Leave some open space in the design. An open layout is less tiring to the eye and mind.
- Text should be readable. Use a minimum font size of 18 points.
- Lettering for the title should be large (at least 70-point font). Use all capital letters for the title.
- Present numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables.
- Visuals should be simple and bold. Leave out or remove any unnecessary details.
- Keep the text brief. Blocks of text should not exceed three paragraphs. Use text to (a) introduce the study (what hypothesis was tested or what problem was investigated? why was the study worth doing?), (b) explain visuals and direct viewers attention to significant data trends and relationships portrayed in the visuals, and (c) state and explain the interpretations that follow from the data. In many cases, conclusions can be summarized in a bullet-point list.
- Depending upon the stage or nature of your project, the text could also include sections on future research plans or questions for discussion with viewers.
So, dear students of the Summer School, feel free to submit your posters and have pleasure in presenting your research with them.
