Date: Monday, April 22nd
>> A poster session is an opportunity for you to share your EUI semester research in a creative, visual way.
>> Presenters will make poster from a single PowerPoint slide in order to demonstrate the main points of research in a clear and concise manner.
>> Each scholar will be given an easel, cardboard support (48" width X 36" height) and clips to support the poster.
>> The posters will be set up in the hallway of the Graduate School for Library and Information Science building for two 35 minute poster sessions.
>> Colleagues and peers will move informally between the posters while presenters typically give a brief (1-2 minute) talk about their research and answer questions.
>> The poster session will last for 35 minutes.

What is a research poster?
A poster session or poster presentation is the presentation of research information by an individual or representatives of research teams at a congress or conference with an academic or professional focus. The work is usually peer reviewed. Poster sessions are particularly prominent at scientific conferences such as medical congresses.
Typically a separate room or area of a tradeshow floor is reserved for the poster session where researchers accompany a paper poster, illustrating their research methods and outcomes. Each research project is usually presented on a conference schedule for a period ranging from 10 minutes to several hours. Very large events may feature a few thousand poster presentations over a matter of a few days.
Presentations usually consist of affixing the research poster to a portable wall with the researcher in attendance answering questions posed by passing colleagues. The poster itself varies in size according to conference guidelines from 2x3 feet to 4x8 feet in dimensions.
