Posters are an excellent way to efficiently present your work and discuss it one-on-one. The URS poster session and reception includes up to 30 posters from across all disciplines and caps off the event. During the poster session students should be available to answer questions and discuss their project.

Each poster is allotted 4’(H) x 3.5’ (W) space. Easels will be provided. Easels have an “open framework” that is not suitable for hanging individual pieces of a poster. Although large, single sheets can be pinned to the easel, if you have smaller pieces, you’ll need to provide your own poster board. Presenters are required to be present at their poster for 30 minutes.

Making a good poster requires some thought.
