Members are encouraged to submit a graphical abstract rather than a traditional poster.
A graphical abstract provides readers with a short, clear summary of your work using graphics rather than text to tell a story.
A sample graphical abstract can be viewed here. Special thanks to Jennifer Fisher; Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia for this example.
Science is hard; effective communication is important. Increasing numbers of journals require a graphical abstract with manuscript submission. Much shorter and simpler than a traditional poster, a graphical abstract can effectively showcase your work on a webpage, as a figure in a thesis or a paper.
