Do you submit abstracts for presentations or posters?
Today I received notification about two abstracts I received this morning, one is accepted for a poster and one for a presentation. I've only given one poster presentation before at most people I know aim for oral presentations. In fact, for expensive conferences, I've known universities to only fund students to go if they have an oral presentation. I think this is a shame, because it's still a valid way to share research and network etc.!
What do you think about poster presentations - do you submit abstracts for them? Are there any advantages to them over oral presentation?
