(La)TeX is user-friendly. It's just that it choses its friends with care.

comment concave curve in tikz
Looks like a quarter of an ellipse to me. Try something like: \draw (0,0) arc [start angle=0, end angle=90, x radius=1cm, y radius=5mm];

I seriously doubt circuitikz is of any help here, but it certainly is quite straightforward to do in tikz.

comment Loading packages from separate document
From your question I gather you have the subfiles in a central location. You could create a myconfig.sty file, in the same central location and insert there all the \usepackage{whatchacallit} calls and any other global options/definitions. In your main file you would have this one only, i.e. \usepackage{myconfig}.

comment Is LaTeX nowadays still that superior to Word?
@barbarabeeton: The ] after terrible got caught in the actual link passed to the browser. A bit dated reading (applies to Word 2007), but still valid on most points.

comment Is LaTeX nowadays still that superior to Word?
@marczellm: LOL 'LaTeX-like syntax' in the superior Word! :D I knew Open/LibreOffice had it - didn't know it spread over to MS Word too (I'm using Word only for quick'n'dirty jobs ;))!

comment Is LaTeX nowadays still that superior to Word?
And just one more thing, regarding formulas: I don't quite understand what you mean by 'real-time'? If you think that reaching for the mouse every time you write/edit a formula and go through the whole process of clicking through the menus for different symbols (not to speak about sub-/superscripts...) is more efficient, then I think you got something wrong there...

I found your list comparing features rather refreshing. Sometimes I had the impression that while you declare that you take a stance to support Word, with your detailed arguments you shoot yourself in the foot. :)

... and I'd love to see a package like this! With the added feature of globally disabling the notes with a package option.

Go to FB! :P Ok, joke aside, you could create or get a vector graphic and use the picture as a symbol, see here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/22487 or here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/31490

comment How to import bibliography (from .bib file) to svg or other Inkscape friendly format
Depending on the time that is still available and your content, why not try instead to do the poster in LaTeX, not in Inkscape? There are document classes for posters... I would try this since you seem to have LaTeX sources for the rest of the material, too.
