I am not an avid nor experienced poster assembler
so I do not have any LaTeX suggestions.
Within CDC I have seen people
use PowerPoint to assemble a HUGE one-page event
-- 49 words?! maybe 490 words! --
which they then print on a poster printer.
I suggest for consideration these items:
* Demo of concept
* Presentation of Code
The best posters I have seen have been demonstrations of
elements of SAS
The most memorable was at NESUG and showed how to do color selection.
Oh, Yes, by Perry Watts, one of our famous doyens.
Remember: a good presentation is an advertisement for a paper.
What is a good poster?
visual presentation: i.e.: advertisement for paper
proof/demo of concept?
may put this out to SAS-L as a � theory Q
