The results of a project are typically presented in three formats; as posters, talks, and papers. A poster is collection of figures, photos, and text printed on a large sheet of paper that is presented on a poster-board in a large hall in a conference building. During poster sessions the presenter of the poster can interact personally with the people attending the poster session and visiting the poster. This section is on planning and designing a poster, and also includes suggestions for practicing the presentation of a poster at a conference.
