Hi there I just finished my Master’s degree and in a couple of months there is a conference about my thesis topic that I would like to have a PhD about. My question is can I present a poster or should I own a PhD already? I read that you can present a poster even with a Master’s degree but my professor told me that’s not true. Should I ask another professor if he is interesting in collaborating with me for a poster or is it dumb? I was thinking on working with the professor I wanted to do my PhD thesis with and maybe work on something small is it possible in only two months? I don’t know how much time you need to prepare a poster. Thank you.
You do not need any specific degree to make and present a poster.
Nobody will check degrees at any point, the only important thing is to produce good work, get it accepted at a conference, and follow conference instructions to build a proper poster, and present it.
In conferences I have seen undergraduate students presenting posters, and even by researchers without degrees (for example, Chris Olah, in Machine Learning).
