In this paper, we introduce the zero divisor graph GI(P) of a poset P (with 0) with respect to an ideal I. It is shown that GI(P) is connected with its diameter ≤3, and if GI(P) contains a cycle, then the core K of GI(P) is a union of 3-cycles and 4-cycles. Further, the chromatic number and clique number of GI(P) are shown to be equal. This proves a form of Beck’s conjecture for posets with 0. The complete bipartite zero divisor graphs are characterized.
