    Abstract

    Posters are a useful way of presenting the results of research and other information to your peers and to scholarly and public audiences. You need a combination of graphic and written skills to ensure your posters achieve their potential and communicate with power and simplicity. Posters are an increasingly common and important form of communication at scientific and professional conferences (MacIntosh-Murray, 2007). At conferences, posters may be on display without the authors being present. Sometimes, however, the authors may be asked to attend poster sessions to answer questions and discuss the material (such as research) contained in the poster, or to give a short talk (perhaps 5 minutes) on the research, to foster discussion.
