Tips for creating an academic poster

  • Be clear: ensure you clearly present the rationale of your research.
  • Have visual impact: graphics can show key results and grab the reader’s attention. Do not forget that the selected images must be relevant.
  • Know your audience: ensure that your poster is accessible also to a non-specialist academic audience.
  • Keep it simple: make a few points clearly and avoid long paragraphs.
  • Highlight the interdisciplinary character of your work.
