SET-UP: do this carefully
GIVE: a 1-sentence summary of your research results and relevance (less than 30 seconds). (Purrington, 2010)
PRACTICE: a short talk to explain your research (less than 5 minutes).
PREPARE: responses to questions you anticipate. Why X conditions? What do the results mean for Y?
STAND: next to your poster, smile, make eye contact with visitors and let your enthusiasm show.
THANK: your audience afterwards
VISIT: other poster presentations at your meeting, and learn from them.
After the presentation is over, consider sharing your poster. Post a copy online along with supplementary materials.
Export your poster as a JPEG or PNG file and upload to a website, blog, Facebook, Flickr, etc.
Try an online document sharing service like Slideshare.
Publish your poster in ePosters.net, an online journal of scientific posters.
An online copy of your poster may serve as a portfolio for job applications or professional reviews. When you publish your poster, consider a Creative Commons license, which facilitates sharing while protecting your copyright interests. Details at: http://creativecommons.org/choose/
