Academic Poster: Basic Components

Traditionally, many academic posters have the following components:

  • 3 to 4 columns
  • poster title
  • author information
  • institution name/logo
  • research content (text, images, graphs, etc.)
  • References section
  • Acknowledgments section

Note that requirements can differ depending on the conference or research discipline (e.g. Arts, Sciences, etc.)
