Poster template
  1. Specifically, in case you do a master thesis this year we ask that you register for the IEOR Industry Day and attend. Also, as part of your official thesis defense, prepare a poster about your thesis research and present it during the event. The following are some useful guidelines and recommendations:
    • The poster introduces your thesis research: What is the context of your study? What questions do you try to answer? What data do you have available? What methods do you (want to) use? Are there preliminary conclusions? What are the further prospects of this research? Even when the thesis project is still in a very early phase, the poster can give an outline of its context and problem situation.
    • Submit the poster in PDF or PowerPoint no later than Wednesday 14 February to We will print it and bring it to the event on Wednesday.
    • A poster template in PowerPoint is available here, or use the faculty's template found here. These are not mandatory templates however, you can use your own visual style.
    • Discuss the content of the poster with your supervisors and get their approval before submitting the poster. If you have a non-disclosure agreement with a company, be absolutely sure to get approval from the company supervisor first (!)

  2. If you do the master thesis next year, you also need to register and come to the event. During the afternoon, we will give an overview of next year's thesis subjects that you can choose. You can personally meet the supervisors (Ghent University or from companies) and ask questions.

Guidelines for researchers

The Industry Day Supply Chain & Mobility Engineering is also an excellent opportunity for researchers in the fields of Industrial Engineering, Operations Research or related fields to give visibility to their work. We invite researchers both in and outside Ghent University to present a poster about their ongoing research during the Industry Day.

There are no formal requirements on the content or the format of the poster, and we would be happy to print the poster for you if it is sent to by Wednesday 14 February. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information if needed.
