Posters provide an opportunity to engage your audience in discussion and invite feedback using a visual format and should not be regarded as a less important presentation format to any others. In particular they enable newer researchers to present ongoing research to an international audience, especially pilot studies, preliminary results or information on new projects. Poster displays will also be featured in the Newer Researchers’ Conference programme and will be allocated sufficient time in the Conference programme for participants to engage in dialogue and informal exchange. Posters will be on show in a specific location throughout the Newer Researchers’ Conference and all accepted Posters are entered for the high profile competition for the best posters displayed. Posters awarded a prize, or highly commended, are also displayed at the SRHE Annual Research Conference and subsequently for the following year at the SRHE offices in London.
For those who wish to engage a wider audience, poster presenters at the Newer Researchers’ conference will be able to display their work at the SRHE Annual Research Conference from the 9-11 December, if they are also registering as delegates for this conference. For Full-time students only, a limited number of delegate places are available at a subsidised rate – see the conference website for more details on these rates. Posters will be prominently displayed to attract the widest attention.
Posters will be displayed on 6 foot by 4 foot (1.8m x 1.2m) poster board. We recommend that poster presenters look at the guidelines set out at:
|University of Leicester Poster Guidelines|
For those of you travelling from abroad, we offer the facility to have your posters printed here for you. The cost of a colour A1 poster will be £25.00
