All EQUS students are expected to present a poster at the Workshop. Researchers are also welcome to present. Please include your poster abstract and title in your registration for the event.

To help you get started, we've included notes from our 2017 poster judges below.

First up, don't forget the first rule of good communication - think about your audience! Their feedback also addressed these three points: 

  • Content: Cut down yon your content. Your poster should have four key messages which follow the outline of 1) problem, 2) methods, 3) results, and 4) what's next.
  • Clarity: Run through your poster talk with someone who isn't in your research group. Make sure you haven't assumed your audience knows essential information!
  • Comprehension: Your poster should make sense without you explaining it!
