Communication and Dissemination

Conference Posters

1 day

This is a workshop for research staff who have little or no experience of producing and presenting academic posters and who need to prepare one for display at a future event, either within their own School or at an international conference. The aim of the workshop is to help you use posters effectively, to pitch them at the right level for your audience, and to make your poster stand out from the rest!

Topics covered during the session include:

  • reasons for producing and presenting posters;
  • managing the stages of the process – from formulating the hypothesis to defending the poster;
  • issues to consider when producing posters – the balance between simplicity, content/information, design, materials, time and cost;
  • defending the poster at the meeting/conference.

The workshop will be a mixture of mini-talks, discussion and interactive group work. In the afternoon you will get a chance to build a poster from first principles.


  "Useful for anyone who is a novice at poster design."


  "Excellent.  Worth attending."
