4. Creating a printout of your content for distribution in the conference hall

Topic: Learn how to automatically create a printout of the content in your scientific poster, which you can hand-in to fellow conference attendees.

Common practice and arising problems.

In the conference hall, you will often want to hand a copy of your work out to fellow attendees that came to ask questions or discuss your work or perhaps plan future collaborations. Common practice is that when authors of the poster wants to distribute a copy of their work in the conference hall, they usually print a color copy of the poster scaled-down to a page either in A4 or letter size. However, this extreme scale-down can result in images that are indiscernible and text that is very difficult to read or even totally illegible.
