Poster sessions


DRUID18 features two Poster Sessions in the main lobby of the conference, Tuesday June 12 14:30-15:00 and 16:30-17:00. All posters will be presented at both sessions. Please see the details in the conference parallel and poster sessions program, avaiable from the drop-down menu above under "Program".


Poster presenters must be available for presenting their work and answering questions during the poster sessions.


Poster format

The posters are a display of the presenter’s paper in the format 0.8 wide x 1.2 meters tall. (This equals roughly vertical A0, ie. 12 A4-sheets of standard paper standing up).


Ideally a poster will provide information on:

*  Title of the paper

*  Name and contact information for the author(s)

*  Research question/aim of the paper

*  The paper’s theoretical framing

*  The paper’s data (if empirical paper)

*  The paper’s main findings, including possible theoretical and policy implications

*  Core references


The use of graphics and colors is encouraged. Type-fonts similar to slide presentations should be used to enhance readability (a poster is not just a copy of the paper).


A poster must grab the viewer’s attention and quickly communicate its ideas and relevance. Keep in mind that people are standing at some distance, thus large fonts will draw attention. Hard copies of the paper should be available for interested colleagues.


Boards to fasten the poster to will be available in the poster area.
