Posters & Demos

Instructions for Submitting Posters and Demonstrations

Posters are ideal for reporting on emerging issues and on works in progress. Demonstrations provide an opportunity to highlight and share innovative solutions.

Both require an extended abstract of up to 2 pages that clearly describes the topic to be presented and states its unique contribution to the field. Posters and demonstrations should aim to improve knowledge, show new technical capabilities, or share solutions and experience in the field.

This year we are inviting digital-only poster submissions. Specific instructions on preparing posters will be provided by the Programme Committee to accepted authors. The poster session will include a poster exhibition session on the second day of the conference. A Best Poster Award will be celebrated at the conference dinner.

Please note that there will be no “Minute Madness” session this year. This is replaced by short videos which will be on display on several screens during all conference days. The authors of accepted posters and demonstrations will be required to create a short video on their poster topic, up to a maximum of 60 seconds. Specific instructions on preparing these videos will be provided by the Programme Committee to accepted authors.
