NDnano Summer REU Seminar: Creative and Effective Posters

Presented by Prof. Marya Lieberman
University of Notre Dame

This talk will focus on how to design a scientific poster that attracts the reader's eye, presents the correct amount of background to set your research problem in context, and conveys your research results clearly and without hyperbole. We will also touch on the "poster blurb," a 30-second to 3-minute oral presentation that can, if done correctly, leave the reader with a deeper appreciation for the significance of your results, your technical skills and intellectual contribution to the research project, and your professionalism. Finally, I'll cover the mechanics of how to put the poster graphics together and get your poster printed.
