Poster Presentations: Why Poster Presentations?

What is a Research Poster?

Simply put, a research poster is a visual representation of your research.  Posters are typically presented at academic conferences or academic events such as Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Prescott Campus Discovery Day.  Posters should be concise, clear, visually appealing, and should be stand-alone (someone reading the poster should be able to fully understand the research without any additional presentation or explanation).

  • Expanding your understanding of your own research
  • Giving you public speaking experience
  • Helping you with networking and making connections in your field
