Template and Advice Regarding Posters

A template is provided for the posters. Please note that viewers should be able to read your poster in less than three minutes – if it looks like it will take longer than that, many people won't bother and will choose to move to the next poster instead. Images, diagrams and graphs are a great way to make your research accessible to an audience with a short attention span. Please see below for some examples of research posters.

Research posters will often contain the following sections:

Title; Introduction and objectives (put your research in context, draw the reader in – what are you studying and why is it interesting and important?); Methods (a brief description of how the research was/is being undertaken); Results (usually the biggest section, or maybe a number of sections, unless you are in the early stages of your project and so instead describing the issues that you will be considering); Conclusions (potentially including future directions); References; and Acknowledgements (eg supervisors or colleagues who have provided useful feedback and/or funders). However, if this doesn't suit your research project, you may prefer not to label your poster sections with these headings.

Winner Selection

Posters will be judged by selection committee, which will be notified during the conference. The competition committee, comprising both academic and practitioner members, will evaluate the content and design of all posters. The self-explanatory posters must visually illustrate and briefly explain technical projects or research studies related to the conference theme or other topics related to the field of professional communication or engineering.


The competition committee will notify the winners on 11th August 2017.  First place and second place winners will be awarded cash prizes and certificates. All winning posters will be displayed during the rest of the congress.
