Creating a poster is relatively simple. Latex, Open Office (particularly, Open Office Draw), and most other packages can create PDFs in paper sizes up to at least A0. Generally:

  • Aim to convey just the main ideas of your paper.
  • A corollary to the above: don't put in large amounts of text or equations and so on. The details should be in your paper.
  • Use colour, but make sure your text is readable.
  • Be creative in your design. You don't have to stick to a bunch of boxes with text.

Getting a poster printed may be more work than creating it in the first place.
