I'll be attending a national conference through a poster presentation. I was wondering what to wear (as a guy). Should it be suit+tie or would a shirt with a collar be fine? 

 

Thanks!

Think business casual. A dress shirt and dress pants usually does the trick. If you were doing an oral presentation then maybe a suit would be slightly more appropriate. Can I ask what conference specifically?

Poster presentation shirt and dress pants...I've attended a few and don't think I really saw anyone presenting a poster wearing a full suit. Side note, interesting to see that how formal someone is at these conferences clothing-wise tends to be inversely proportional to how much of a big shot they are in their field hahaha

Depends on the conference. I have been to local research days in clinical departments where everyone wore a full suit, and international conferences where people wore jeans with a dress shirt.

Make sure you wear an expensive pair of shoes. It will show!
