Abstract submissions for the NRM Science Conference 2018 have just opened. We’re calling for presenters to showcase their work through a variety of modes, including graphical abstracts. While the prospect of creating a graphical abstract may seem daunting, the result can be a captivating and engaging way to explain your work.
Images and graphics can quickly communicate complex or technical information, while being eye-catching. You don’t need to be a graphic designer to create a graphical abstract, just an ability to package up the key messages of your work and what it might mean to a general audience or some interesting facts about your project or industry.
To help you with the process, we’ve compiled a list of websites:
- Crafting Your Own Visuals Part 1: Choosing the right format
- Crafting Your Own Visuals Part 2: Creating graphics using PowerPoint
- How to Make an Infographic
- A Beginner’s Guide to Data Visualisation
- 19 Warning Signs your Infographic Stinks
Graphical abstracts are a great tool to deliver short, sharp science. And once created, they can be used multiple times in reports, presentations or other conferences.
Abstract submissions for the conference are now open and close on XX February. For inspiration, check out the graphical abstracts below by Animate Your Science.
