Summary

This book provides unique step-by-step guidance to producing a high quality, effective poster for display at a scientific meeting. It aims to give young or inexperienced scientists the extra confidence and encouragement to start contributing poster presentations to scientific meetings, and enthuse experienced poster presenters to continue to improve upon their presentations, and benefit more from the overall experience. Chapters 1-4 are concerned with the purpose of posters: the pros and cons of poster presentations and how to take advantage of the opportunities they present. Chapters 5-9 cover aspects of what to include: how best to present text and data, and the use of colour in the overall format and design of the poster. Chapters 10-11 deal with actual construction: how to produce posters in a variety of styles and formats, as well as general advice on paper characteristics, drawing aids, adhesives, and cutting equipment. Chapters 12-13 are a guide to transporting the poster to the meeting, and presenting it at the poster session, and should take some of the mystique out of creating the 'right' image to the people that matter. Chapter 14 gives guidance on hosting poster sessions and avoiding the various pitfalls. Chapter 15 provides an opportunity to critically review some examples of posters presented at international scientific meetings. This book provides concise, practical guidance on all aspects of production and presentation of scientific posters. It alerts the poster presenter to the various pitfalls and how best to avoid them, and to the many opportunities that may be capitalised upon.
