Tim Miller (view biography)
One of the mainstays of technical communication, the scientific poster offers a compact and powerful format for sharing your work with your peers. Yet, sometimes, even the most brilliant results can be obscured by poor layout or design. Communications expert Tim Miller shared the basic rules of good poster design and showed some of the most effective tools and techniques for creating technical posters with quality and clarity. Numerous examples of good and bad poster design were critically reviewed. Attendees left this session armed with the skills to guarantee that their next scientific poster will stand out in a crowd.
Admission was included with 2011 MRS Fall Meeting registration. No additional registration required.
