Presenting Thesis in Conferences: Oral and Poster Presentation

  • Santhosh John Abraham


  • The task to convert the voluminous thesis data, its analysis and the conclusions drawn over few years to a ten minute oral or a poster presentation is too demanding.

  • The process starts with in depth discussion of the doctrine under proposal with colleagues and seniors, refining the proposal and submission for presentation in an appropriate conference.

  • The initial presentation may better be a poster which gives the presenter ample informal time to defend his concept with the viewers in different ways thus improving the presentation skills, confidence levels and finally lead to a chance for making an oral presentation.

  • The increasing visibility the candidate makes by continued presentation will make the profile of the presenter better.
