Design your scientific posters with InDesign

Adobe InDesign is a powerful tool for designing books, newspapers, posters, roll-ups, and more. During this course we will focus on how to use UiT's template to create a scientific poster that could be displayed at a conference. The course is especially relevant for PhD students and research staff.

Course content

  • Designing your scientific poster - how to get people to come look at your poster
  • UiT's template for scientific posters
  • Text, headings, formatting
  • Data tables
  • Figures and images, text wrap
  • Export to PDF and sending to the printer

The course will be held in English.


This is a beginner course so you don't need any previous experience with InDesign.

However, you are strongly recommended to bring texts and images related to your research. That way you will be able to spend the course working on your own content and be able to work towards making a finished product.


We will be using the PC lab at the Pharmacy building in Tromsø (room number F4.224). InDesign is already installed on the PCs, so no need to bring your own computer unless you want to.
