We have an older book which was aimed at this market from Kerry Shepard (2005) that sold nearly 1600 copies, so we could think of this as a replacement for that. - It will be the most up to date book that specifically deals with poster presentations, a very common form of presentation at academic conferences.

Research time would involve contemplating the intellectual prompts to action, such as where you are in your research endeavours, the opinion of your supervisor, and how ready you feel to emerge from your research hive and offer some of your findings to others.
