What is a Research Poster?
A poster is a visual communication tool that includes a mix of text (brief) and graphics to represent a research project. It can be a very effective way to communicate the results of your research without having to deal with a formal speaking presentation.
"A poster is ... an illustrated abstract."
Cornell Center for Materials Research, Cornell University
"An effective poster is a source of information, a conversation starter, advertisement of your work, and a summary of your project.
George Hess, Kathryn Tosney, Leon Liegel, North Carolina State University
