Essential information: 

Poster submission

Please include your poster title and abstract in your workshop registration via Eventbrite. 

Poster size is normally A0 (841 x 1189 mm).

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!

Bus transfers

On December 5 a bus will be available at 5pm for those arriving at the Domestic Terminal, Perth airport. The contact people for the bus are Michael Kewming and Rob Harris who will arrive on the 4.20pm Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane.
