Scientific Posters

Scientific poster sessions are a cornerstone of academic conferences and provide a platform for researchers to present their work in a visual format.


Creating an effective poster for a scientific poster session requires careful planning, organization, and attention to detail. Clearly establish the purpose of your poster. What research question are you addressing? What are your main findings or conclusions? Divide your poster into sections such as Introduction, Abstracts, Results, Conclusion, and References. Each section should be concise and focused, highlighting the key points of your research.


Incorporate visual elements such as graphs, charts, diagrams, and images to illustrate your findings. Choose clear and professional graphics that enhance comprehension and add visual appeal to your poster.


Be sure to follow the Bayer guidelines on colors, typeface, and clear design language to maintain consistency and clarity. The most important design rules are listed in the Visual Identity section.

If you have any questions, please contact your Bayer Identity Net expert.
