Successful Science Posters

Successful Science Posters

Thursday, May 8, 2008

Columbia University, Room 301

Presented By

Presented by Science Alliance and Columbia University Office of Postdoc Affairs


Taking a poster to a conference is an increasingly important part of being a scientist. Unfortunately, this means that everyone else brings a poster, too, so it is increasingly difficult to get noticed at large meetings. Colin Purrington, an evolutionary biologist at Swarthmore College, will present tips on how to make a scientific poster that will be effective, memorable, and, ideally, something you look forward to doing. His presentation will also include a semi-embarrassing group bonding activity that will continue into the wine and cheese session that follows later in the day.
