Poster: General Guidelines

A poster gives a visual presentation of your research work to your targeted audience. Make use of schematic diagrams, graphs, tables and other visual aides to drive home the point to the audience rather than using too much text to pass the message. State the research question or hypothesis clearly and concisely in your poster and to clarify the take-home message.
