I am currently editing my CV for grad school applications with Latex. In my list of conference presentations (posters and an oral), I have provided hyperlinks to arXiv citations of my abstracts, but I don't have a citation hyperlink available for one poster presented at two (1 state & regional) conferences.

Would it be considered unnecessary or weird to an Admissions Committee to include a Google Drive, for instance, to the actual poster? I feel like including it so that the committee can actually look at my research projects if they desire.

In general, anything that can help folks access your works easier from your CV is a good thing. I include links in mine for any articles that are in open-access journals or conference papers that are in public archives. For the poster, though, make sure it's well proofread and up to date research, I think - I wouldn't go back and put all your posters online, maybe just your most recent ones?

  • Thanks for the response. All of my poster conferences are in 2016 and 2017, so is that considered recent enough? In regards to up-to-date, this poster was a small research project that I didn't plan to continue, but thought it would be good to highlight my work. Dec 24, 2017 at 23:36
