Frequently Asked Questions
A poster session is a presentation of research in the form of a poster, usually held in-person or virtually.
Poster sessions are common at academic conferences and allow for the dissemination of information in a more informal setting than traditional presentations.
Poster sessions are important because they provide an opportunity for researchers to share their work with wider audiences.
They also allow for more informal interactions between presenters and attendees, which can lead to valuable feedback and collaboration opportunities.
Typically, a poster session is organized as a series of individual presentations, with each presenter having a designated time slot to explain it to interested attendees.
Attendees typically walk around the room, looking at all the posters and talking to the presenters.
A virtual poster session is essentially the same as the physical poster session, but it takes place online.
Presenters can create their posters using digital tools and then share them online.
Attendees can view the posters at their convenience, and also interact with the presenters via chat or video conferencing.
Some of the benefits of virtual poster sessions are:
- You can reach a wider audience than you would be able to reach in person.
- You can connect with other researchers online.
- You can share your research with people who may not be able to attend the conference in person.
- You can get feedback on your research from other researchers.
