Why a Poster Session?
Poster sessions provide the opportunity to present significant work in a visual form and are part of many research conferences today. While a fifteen minute talk can communicate the same amount information, a poster allows viewers to assimilate the information at their own pace.
The Taylor University poster session encourages students to demonstrate their work in undergraduate research, class projects, or other creative experiences.

Goals of the Poster Session
- A poster session provides the opportunity to present significant work in a visual form.

- Viewers can be exposed to new ideas and results in a digestible form.
