Understand project expectations Learn the basics of poster design Begin planning your posters
Visual means for communicating research to an academic or professional community. Summary of research that serves to create interest by highlighting the most important things.
Each group must produce one poster Posters can be made with PowerPoint Poster dimensions must be 48” x 36” (or vice versa)
Registration for Seminar 3 Final Event: Nov. 5th- 9thhttp://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/semi nar3presentations/ Seminar 3 Final Event (poster presentations at MHC): Dec. 5th , 6th & 9th Poster Printing Deadline Nov. 30th
What makes a poster Succeed?
Images should guide the overall layout, not the text. Avoid cluttering the poster (too many graphs or photos). Watch your color contrasts! Color should be easy on the eyes.
Make sure all components are aligned properly. Less text is key! Make use of an underlying structure that guides the viewer. Create a narrative that’s self-explanatory.
Introduction: Hypothesis (Thesis) Results: What did you find? Discussion: What does it mean? Conclusion: Conclusion and future directions References: Text, data and images used

We present a denotational Our compiling strategy is to semantics for a logic program to exploit coarse-grain parallelism construct a control flow for the at function application level: and logic program. The control flow is the function application level defined as an algebraic parallelism is implemented by manipulator of idempotent fork-join mechanism. The substitutions and it virtually compiler translates source reflects the resolutionWe describe the control flowand design of the control flow machine, and present the results of detailed simulations of the programs into philosophy deductions. We also present aperformance ofon single processing element.

We have demonstrated that to achieve the best execution time We apply a parallel simulation for a control flow program, the scheme to a real problem: the number of nodes within the simulation of a control flow system and the type of mapping architecture, and we compare scheme used are particularly the performance of this simulator important.

Color: ah! Text: fit & alignment Text: too much! Images: not enough Background: distracting
Color: easier on the eyes Text: fit properly & justify alignment Images & Text: less text & more images Background: “compliments” images and background color
Poster Critique:Why is this postersuccessful?
Images guide the overall layout, not the text Not cluttered Good use of color Text & Images aligned properly Underlying structure guides viewer
Break up text with bullets or numbers (hint: this slide!) Indenting shows subordination - Like this, see?
Avoid lengthy paragraphs talking about why you did what you did and whether you dislike positivism because there is such a thing as reality out there and it operates in a certain way and we should be able to access that in some shape, form, or fashion and besides it’s all from some stuffy old dead guy thinking too hard, anyway.
Make sure your font color stands out against the background. Be consistent with colors and use them to guide the reader. - e.g., you can use one color for headings, another for body text

Make an appointment: http://macaulay.cuny.edu/webforms/?q=node/26 At least one person from each group must come IN- PERSON to the printing appointment. DO NOT attach your file! Bring it with you (on a flash drive or other media) to your appointment.
