The workshop conveys the key principles of graphic design and layout technique. The participants acquire basic knowledge about visual communication and design to present their research content visually well-structured, attractive and focused on its most relevant items. They will also have the opportunity to put directly into practice what they have learned by creating their own poster during the layout session.
