What is a Poster Session?

Poster sessions are designed in the vein of storyboards, using graphics, charts and other eye-catching information posted on a 4’ x 8’ bulletin board to provide attendees with a more visual means to learn about useful tools and successful case studies.

A poster session is a graphic presentation of project findings that displays graphs, charts, figures, photos, or tables, and a small amount of text on a poster board (like a storyboard). The participant is invited to prepare and post a visual summary of facts, experiences or opinions for viewing by conference attendees. The posters will be grouped together in exhibition-style rows.

The poster format allows one presenter an opportunity to speak in a more informal environment, standing next to your poster, speaking to smaller groups of people. The interaction is more personalized to the questions of the attendee/reviewer.
