Poster Awards

In general, posters are a key component of communicating your research and an important element in a successful scientific career. Poster presentations give the participants the chance to ask and explain fields of their research to small(er) groups and thus yield high quality information due to closer interaction between each other.

In order to successfully participate in the DPG Summer School "Applied Photonics", each participant is asked to prepare a (scientific) poster presentation of their field of reserach and/or interest or even contain information about past internships.

Students may select their own template to use. Please note that a proper template for a poster has to be used. A power point presentation -cut & pasted on a poster - is inacceptable. Students are encouraged to search for and utilize different types of templates.

They are to be printed independently on a 70 cm x 100 cm size sheet.

Posters must contain the following items

  • Name of company / university (logos!)
  • Location of internship / scientific work
  • Name of the student
  • Semester(s) or years worked at the internship or scientific work
  • Short description of the work/research field
  • Abstract
  • 1-2 examples of significant project(s) or work accomplished
    • Title(s)
    • Short summary (results) of project(s) or work
    • Use visualized data (Photographs, Graphs etc.)
  • Share your experience
    • Skills gained
    • Lessons learned
    • Challenges and how you overcame them
    • Does (or did) your experience influence your goals?

Tips for creating poster presentation:

Free PowerPoint templates are also available online at:

  • Reminders

    • Attention! You have to have permission of your internship workplace and/or university before presenting a project or research in order to not violate any license agreements or otherwise lawfully binding contracts!
    • Keep the target audience in mind. Many of these posters will be seen (and rated) by professionals.
    • Be clear and precise in both content as well as presentation.
    • Your poster has to draw attention, but do not use too many flashy graphics or effects - the content, clarity and readability are important!
    • Remember to check your grammar and spelling.
    • Be concise in your writing and use illustrations.
    • Mind the given poster dimensions. If the submitted poster is to small, it will be expanded during the printing process, which will likely blur everything.

    About ILO

    The Laser Technology and Photonics Division has been one of the main pillars in the Faculty of Technology for more than two decades at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer. High-performing and research-intensive working groups have been established at the Institute for Laser and Optics. A substantial amount of third-party funding as well as university-internal funding are expanding the excellent equipment yielding research and development at a high level. Scientific work groups and research activities are implemented in the international Bachelor and Master study courses Engineering Physics. These courses are offered jointly by UAS Emden/Leer and the University of Oldenburg since 1998 and proved to be extremely attractive by more than 1000 graduates from as of now 66 nations worldwide. Fundamental science and application-oriented research being the strengths at U Oldenburg and UAS Emden/Leer are particularly interconnected.
