This is an annual event which gives students the opportunity to present a poster detailing their project work in an informal way to faculty, fellow students, the Informatics Industrial Advisory Board and selected external guests.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to:

  • focus and reflect on project work
  • set targets
  • inform potential employers, faculty and colleagues
  • gain important feedback
  • gain invaluable experience by presenting work and ideas
  • network with potential employers

The idea of the poster exhibition is for participants to present a coherent story of what they are working on.

Don't forget to check out the hints and tips pages for great advice and guidance for designing you poster.

2nd Year PGR students are required to present as part of their Student's Report in their Annual Review.

Other PGR years are also welcome to present a poster at the event.  Although not compulsory it would allow participants to gather useful input for current and future research.

Producing a poster is an integral part of the 2nd year annual review.   2nd Year PGR students are required to present as part of their Student's Report in their Annual Review

The poster sessions is an integral part of the School PGR research methods course for 1st year students.

PGR students - a poster to a design of your choice following the size options below:

A2 - portrait or landscape.

A1 (preferred size) - portrait or landscape

A0 - portrait only.

Content and format should be like a poster for an academic conference/workshop. 

The audience will be faculty and fellow students from across the School, so make it accessible to them all — assume less technical background than you would for a presentation to researchers just in your area.

The poster will be judged on:

1) How easy its content is to understand

2) It’s coherence (clarity and conciseness)

3) Precision (accurate and unambiguous)

4) Visual appeal (graphical presentation and style). 

 

Suggestion: base your design on a poster you think communicates well.

First year PGR students on the research methods course will be the judges.  

Prizes

PGR Students:                     £100 for the Best Poster and two £50 Runner Up Prizes

Informatics MSc Students:   £100 for the Best Poster and two £50 Runner Up Prizes

All awardees will receive a certificate signed by the head of their department.

 

 

 

 

Networking Opportunities

It is a very good opportunity to think about the scope of current project work, and will be very useful in helping plan the rest of the work. Perhaps most importantly the exhibition provides participants with a chance to get some feedback and ideas from peers, members of faculty and industry guests.

At previous years' events, a number of projects attracted interest from attending companies with students being offered interviews and collaboration opportunities.  All full-time Masters students and those in the second year of a part-time Masters are strongly encouraged to participate.
