Description of the planned Poster Research; should emphasize the problem, problem context or setting, research questions, methodology, what was done, and why the work is important and findings, if applicable.
Recommended content for the poster includes:
A clear statement of the purpose or goals of the research (i.e., the primary research questions or issues being addressed)
A brief summary of the theoretical or conceptual foundation for the work
A description of the methodology being used and the project findings (if applicable), and the theoretical and/or practical significance and implications of the research.
The following are tips to enhance your poster:
Keep it simple and brief. Determine the key points for your poster and highlight these, rather than trying to cover the whole project. You can elaborate on these points on an individual basis. Use large enough fonts so people will not have to squint to read the material.
Headings of at least 48-point font and text at least 18-point font is helpful to readers. Readers will typically be three feet away from your poster.
Make your poster visually appealing. Be creative. Incorporate color. Use photographs, graphs, charts, maps, and the like. Be attentive to the layout and placement of your materials.
Simple handouts/brochures are an excellent complement to a poster session.
Consider having a pad of paper handy to allow visitors who have more in-depth questions or would like more information about your research to provide you with their contact information or provide you with their business card. You may also want to consider bringing business cards of your own to distribute.
