Submission Details

Submit an abstract no longer than two pages describing the work. Submit abstract by sending an email to with Subject Line:

Poster: [Your Title]
The abstract should identify the key contribution of the work being presented in the poster. In addition, it should describe the particular problem being addressed, what makes this problem interesting or important, and what your approach is to the problem.

Preference will be given to new and exciting problems as opposed to thorough but incremental pieces of work. Please use the IEEE conference proceedings style (2-column) for preparing your abstract. For each author, please include institutional affiliation and status (student, faculty, and so on).

Your abstract should not exceed the two-page limit; non-conforming submissions will not be considered for review.

Poster Session

A poster is a 30 inch by 40 inch rectangular board on which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Please print a single large sheet of paper describing the work and attach that to the poster board. You must bring your own poster board. Several document companies, such as Kinko's / FedEx Office, produce professional-looking posters from material produced on software like Powerpoint; you may want to use such a facility.
