Design of Academic Posters ( April 13 and 16, 2021 | online)

Written by

Starting Point

Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them, and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear message, 
a text format optimized for best legibility and well-chosen graphics. And above all, you need to think well through how to organize, arrange and illustrate your research content for a printed or digital poster format.

Basic rules of graphic design and layout technique will help you to present your work in a visually well-structured and compelling way. The training shows you how to present your research efficiently and provides time to put directly into practice what you have learned.
