Project presentation.  Poster mini-conference.


The literature project presentation will be organized in the form of a mini-conference where each of small groups (2-3 persons) are supposed to make a poster and be able to defend it, i.e. be able to answer questions from other participants.


A collection of A4 pages distributed over A0 area would be the easiest way to make a poster.  Those pages can be either glued on to Whatman A0 paper, i.e. making up one piece, or attached separately to a stand by pins, Scotch tape, etc. In the latter case, one can take the poster down and make kind of compact report which is easier to keep than one big A0-page.

 

Some tips:

Surface Science, Physics Today, Nature, Science, Physical Review Letters, Superlattices and Microstructures, Thin Solid Films, Progress in Surface Science etc.
