Poster Submission Guidelines

Can you convey your Global Health research through a poster?

Staff and students working on Global Health topics across the School are invited to submit a poster that illustrates your research findings, theories, models and ideas in a visually compelling way. The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase the breadth of Global Health research currently underway at the LSE and to enable researchers to share and discuss their work with colleagues.

If your poster is accepted into the exhibition, it will be:

  • printed (free of charge) and displayed at the Global Health Initiative Poster Exhibition on 18 May 2017. You will be expected to attend to exhibit your work.
  • winning posters will be displayed on the LSE Global Health Initiative website.

If you need any guidance on creating your poster submission then the LSE Research Festival Toolkit (the Research Festival hosts a similar poster display annually) has some useful advice.

Academic societies increasingly have poster sessions at their annual conferences, and some require junior scholars who are first-time attendees to submit posters before they can present papers. Posters are an ideal way of presenting research in a succinct form, and presenting a poster provides a way into the professional academic network of scholars.

Judging criteria

Posters will be judged by an expert panel from the Global Health Initiative Steering Committee against the following criteria:

  1. Organisation: How well is structure employed to organise text and images?
  2. Presentation: Do the graphics, colour, font, and density of information enhance or detract from the message?
  3. Clarity: Are the arguments contained in the poster coherent? Are they clear to a general audience?
