URI Graduate School of Oceanography
Getting ready for the Association for Science of Limnology and Oceanography 2015 Aquatic Sciences Meeting?
Whether you’re giving a talk or presenting a poster, Metcalf Institute’s poster design workshop will help you learn new ways of communicating your science that will better engage your scientific peers, potential funders, and the general public.
You have about one minute to catch the attention of the average conference attendee with a scientific poster. This underscores the importance of designing compelling, easily readable posters that are more likely to engage a passerby. This interactive workshop will focus on best practices in conceptualizing and designing scientific posters.
The workshop was free and open to science faculty, research staff, and graduate students from all Rhode Island colleges and universities.
The Poster Workshop was preceded by a SciComm Exchange: Formulating Your Scientific Message
12 p.m. – 1 p.m. (Including lunch)
Attendees were invited to register for one or both sessions.
