Instructions for preparing a poster

In your abstract for the Higher and Vocational Education Research Days 2014, you were able to propose that your research or development project will be introduced with a poster. A poster is a very common means of presenting research work and results and development projects at seminars. If your poster abstract was approved, please find some helpful information below.

The Research Days 2014 posters will all be put in the same space where visitors can view them. A poster walk session is included in the programme for the first day at 16.00-16.45. Each presenter will bring a printed poster to the event.

Please bring your poster to Dynamo's (Piippukatu 11) poster exhibition area on Thursday 6th of November at 9.00-9.45. The event organiser has poster walls on which the posters will be put. During the poster walk session  on the first day the exhibitors may also have small handouts of the poster's theme to give to the audience.

Refer to the Research Days programme for information on the space and the exact times. The programme will be updated on the event website by 22 October 2014. This is also the last day of registration for the Research Days. If you have not registered yet, please register here!

We are looking forward to seeing all posters and their presenters in Jyväskylä at the Research Days 2014!

How to create a poster?

We recommend that you create the poster in size A0 (841 x 1,189 mm), but you can also make a smaller poster if desired. At the poster presentation point, you can also hand out brochures on the subject.

Many educational institutes and organisations have their own graphic template to facilitate the design. Your own organisation can often help you in creating a poster.

For the Research Days 2014, you can make either a scientific or a professional poster. The characteristics of these two poster types are roughly as follows:

    A scientific poster concentrates closely on research work and its results. The contents include an introduction, material and method descriptions, results and conclusions. Figures are a good way of summarising things.

    The poster may describe, for example, the progress and results of a certain project. Its contents are more informal than those of a scientific poster. It is a good idea to use figures and images in addition to text.
