How to Prepare a Poster

Well, I was searching around for some tips on preparing a poster presentation. I'm finishing up my poster for the conference, and I'm always looking for ways to improve my presentations :-)

Here are some of my own tips for preparing and presenting a poster:

  1. Keep the presentation well organized and uncluttered.
  2. Use plenty of white space
  3. Use effective graphics as much as possible
  4. Use large font for all text. Should be clearly readable from a few feet away.
  5. Use very large font for heading (Title and Author)-should be readable from many feet away
  6. Stand to side of your poster, so that you're not blocking it.
  7. Be prepared to answer questions, but don't interrupt when someone is reading your poster.
