Submit a poster. Research posters summarize information or research concisely and attractively to help publicize it and generate discussion.  The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.
