In many fields, the poster presentation is a key form of scholarly communication. This workshop provides an opportunity for graduate students to polish a draft poster that they intend to present at a conference.
You must bring a draft poster or a poster you have previously presented in .ppt or similar format.* If you own a laptop computer, please bring it to the workshop if possible.
Participate in this workshop and you will:
- Analyze posters and learn what features can make a poster effective
- Evaluate posters prepared by other students and gain valuable constructive criticism from them on your own work-in-progress (or previously presented poster)
- Improve the poster you are currently developing (or have previously presented) and learn to apply those lessons to future posters
Dr. Christopher Corkery, who has just completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Chemistry, will lead the workshop.
The workshop will be held on McGill's downtown campus on Tuesday, February 2, from 10am to 12pm. Registrants will receive the workshop location in a confirmation email.
* If you do not have a poster in draft form, or a poster that you have previously presented, this workshop will be of little value to you. Graphos typically offers a companion workshop in the fall semester for students who have not yet begun work on a poster.
