Most research posters at conferences or in university hallways seem to defy common sense: from two steps away, passersby can’t read anything—assuming they even get past the over-crowded layout. Posters are not magnified one-page papers. This lecture thus discusses how to create more visual posters that get attention, facilitate navigation, and convey messages through strict selection, careful phrasing, and effective layout.

An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-luc Doumount is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, Maps, and Theorems, his book about “effective communication for rational minds.”

Join us for one of Dr. Doumont’s world-famous talks on communication. Everyone is welcome to attend: tell your friends, colleagues, students, and everyone else at USC!

Sponsored by: the Hearing and Communication Neuroscience Training Program, the Programs in Biomedical and Biological Sciences and Development, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine. Also sponsored by: the Keck Postdoctoral Advisory Council, and the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
