At SAS Global Forum, one of the most difficult areas for me to show to you are the poster presentations. This year, I asked Steve Polilli, a colleague who is great with a Flipcam, to video a few for me. I picked out three that I will use in the coming weeks on the Friday's Innovation Inspiration series.
The first in the series is a presentation by Jenine Milum from her paper, Creating a report in the SAS Information Delivery Portal using SAS Information Maps. To do a poster presentation, you still have to write a paper, but you also have to prepare a poster representation for display.
Chris Battiston, a first-timer at SAS Global Forum 2012 and Second place awardee for Best Contributed Paper in the Posters category for his paper, Wake Up Your Data with Graph'n'Go, says that poster presentations may be a great way to gradually learn speaking skills for those who are uncomfortable speaking in front of a large audience. Your presentation is only a few minutes - unless Polilli gets a hold of you.
Be sure to check out Milum's award-winning Coders' Corner Paper. She won Best Contributed Paper for Proc Format, a Speedy Alternative to Sort / Sort / Merge.
