These days, poster presentations, whether electronic or paper, are an integral part of a scientific conference, having been introduced into the arena in the 1970s. They allow researchers to showcase and discuss their work with their peers and, at some events, offer an alternative if an abstract for a proffered paper is not accepted because the organisers may offer the submitter the chance to present a poster instead. Perhaps in the eyes of some cynics, posters are a way for conference organisers to attract delegates and likewise make a good reason for scientists to justify their attendance. However, if a poster is well designed, well presented, and with good content, a lot is to be gained from the process. For budding scientists, it offers the first steps towards presenting their work in a less intimidating setting than a conference delivery of a paper. Perhaps most importantly, a poster presentation can potentially lead to productive collaborations and development into a peer-reviewed paper.
