At each annual meeting and some fall tours and chapter events, SIA welcomes poster displays for research which is either just beginning or is not suited to a 20 minute talk. Such displays also often include physical artifacts and digital slideshows.
Other than our standard maximum size of 30 x 40″ (the size of the foamcore board that you will have on an easel to display your poster), we have no specific restrictions on what you do with your poster. That said, we have developed a set of brief guidelines which will help you avoid some standard pitfalls of poster development that can make the poster difficult to read or difficult for the viewer to understand your main point.
The simple two page guidelines are available here:SIA Poster Guidelines
