Poster sessions provide a complement to the conference programs to depict implementation of practices or enhancements made by users to their Innovative systems. They may be graphical representations of some kind of project or practice. You can use photos, charts, graphs, artwork--anything that works with the topic that is presented. Use the poster to advertise your research. Combine text and graphics to make a visually-pleasing presentation.
Typically, a professional poster involves showing your work to numerous researchers at a conference or seminar. This can take place in one large room, several smaller rooms, or even on a balcony. Then, as viewers walk by, your poster should quickly and efficiently communicate your research. Unlike the fast pace of a slide show or verbal presentation, a poster session allows viewers to study and restudy your information and discuss it with you one-on-one. You may also be required to give short presentations on your research every ten or fifteen minutes.
