Organizing Ideas

A poster is a summary of a paper or project.

Unlike a paper, your poster is a visual presentation of the ideas; it does not rely on words in the same way a paper would. Posters are supplemented by your own presentation as you explain your poster content to your audience.

Key messages are key points that you speak to. The poster itself is the visual anchor for your audience as they listen.
