Call for participation

[deze pagina in het Nederlands]

During the LW Research Day we organize a poster/demo session at which every faculty researcher can present his or her digital humanities research by an academic poster or demo. All posters and demos are presented in a poster/demo hall enabling visitors to find interesting information for them. During the poster/demo session, you briefly explain your poster/demo a few times. All colleagues (predoc, postdoc or ZAP) are invited to participate in the poster/demo session.

The purpose of an academic poster is to present your research on the basis of one poster. Do you have no experience in creating a scientific poster? Call on a colleague, use the tips and tricks mentioned below or make use of a training session organized by the Doctoral Schools.

Register your poster/demo

Please register the title of your poster/demo before July 28, 2019 at 10.00PM.

Format of your poster

Posters (in English or Dutch) have to be made in the UGent-template. This template is based on PowerPoint and is easy to edit. Many basic elements are already given, e.g. logos, color, frameworks, contact information, loading images, … (Only) within the grey box you can be flexible and creative. Use a computer that has the font “UGent Panno Text” installed. You can of course increase or decrease text or adjust the number of columns depending on your content. Maintain, however, the original set size. The final result should be saved as PDF.

Only posters using the corporate design will be displayed at the research day. For IT assistance, you can contact the faculty ICT department, by e-mail at or live in their office (only in the morning).
