FAQ’s

Q: What is a poster presentation?
A: A poster presentation is a part of a conference where selected researchers are given an opportunity to present their work on poster boards. The posters display and convey scientific information pictorially. Conference organizers typically provide displays for the poster presenters to secure their posters. Conference attendees walk through the hall where all the posters are displayed, at designated times (called poster sessions). Poster presenters are expected to stand next to their posters during the poster sessions to answer any questions that the conference attendees might have about their work.

Q: How is a poster presentation different than an oral presentation?
A: In a poster presentation, research is conveyed pictorially on poster paper. In poster presentations, many people are displaying their posters at the same time. In an oral presentation, 1 person at a time is presenting their work orally in front of an assembled audience.

Q: What are the expectations for poster presenters?
A: Poster presenters are expected to do the following:

  • Summarize of their work on poster paper that fits the dimensions and orientation set by the conference organizer.
  • Stand next to their posters during the poster sessions to answer any questions that conference attendees might have about their work.
  • Put up and take down their posters at times designated by the conference organizer.
