On applying to present a poster
Keep the poster oriented towards a clinical question of some significance.
Posters should usually have a one point agenda.
Know your audience. Understand and deliver what they would be interested in.
Prepare a poster summary as you would for a scientific paper in a standard abstract format. This of course is not how the poster will appear, but is submitted to help selection and be a part of the conference proceedings.
Preparing the content
Attendees and judges at the conference will usually view posters for only a minute.
The poster has to address an important clinical issue (content) & be attractive (presentation) to get noticed. It is the equivalent of a good billboard advertisement.
On a poster, space is at a premium. Do not waste it on copious background material. Come to the point directly.
Though basic sciences are important, present only what is only of relevant interest.
List a few important references to validate scientific content.
Produce good visuals. This can be high quality photographs, graphs or charts. One or two of these are enough to catch the eye.
Do not overcrowd the poster with too many pictorials.
Less is more. Do not try to present too much. A poster has to be clear and concise to be read.
Preparing the poster
Check the guidelines for creating and submitting an e Poster.
The layout and format are critical. Be logical.
A poster should be organized such that there is a flow of the content & it is easy to browse through. Guide the viewer’s eye with numbering or arrows.
Do not use small fonts that are difficult to read.
The main points should be highlighted to make it easy to read.
Visual appeal is important.
Poster related interactions
Spend a fair amount of time near where your poster is displayed.
It is worth having a few interesting opening remarks prepared.
Be attentive to the comments and try to answer queries as best as you can.
If the details are difficult to provide, it is worth getting back to the visitor at a later point in time. This usually leaves a lasting impression.
