The workshop “Theory and design of scientific posters“ covers different aspects of scientific posters as increasingly popular form of presentation in various scientific disciplines. As an introduction, the poster as communication medium is described, with special attention to the differences among the disciplines such as natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, applied sciences, etc. Several case studies and settings will be presented and discussed. The participants of the workshop are therefore explicitly invited to contribute their own work and material to this discussion. The second part focuses on how to create effective and attractive posters. Starting from the essential technical knowledge of poster ingredients such as pixel vs. vector graphics, typography, colors, etc., different software applications for creating posters are presented and optionally used for initial designs. In addition to basics in design and layout principles for text and image content, several approaches for reducing bulky content and visual complexity will be presented. Finally, the production step as well as the oral presentation itself will be addressed. Numerous examples and hands-on sessions will complete the workshop.
