An article by Jane Miller in the current issue of Health Services Research explains strategies for preparing conference posters. As she writes, posters are a "hybrid of a published paper and an oral presentation" and people often fail to recognize this in preparing a poster. The article reviews existing literature on research communication and provides some guidelines on how to present statistical methods and results appropriately. It's all common sense stuff, might come in handy for first-time presenters looking for guidance.
It also goes nicely with Gary's "Publication, Publication" guide for writing research papers which you can find here.
