Author's Guide

Poster Presentation

* Please note that paper submission and author registration is now closed.

The following author's guide is provided to ensure that your paper abstract is accepted for review and that, following acceptance, your complete paper is accepted for presentation AND publication.

All session presenters may meet, if required, with their Session Chairs prior to their session time to discuss arrangements and confirm their presence at the conference, detailed location assignments, etc.   The times available for consultation will vary, depending on your Chair's preferences.  You may be contacted by our Session Liason with further instructions regarding preparation and meeting times..

Poster sessions have become a good way for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel sessions. Thus it is important that you display your message clearly and strikingly so as to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.

Authors will be required to man their Poster for their alloted time slot as indicated in the Final Program.

For your poster, a board will be provided which measures 120cm by 120cm (roughly 4' x 4'). Push tacks will be available to tack your poster to the board. A Powerpoint template for the poster is available here.

Carefully and completely prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time nor materials available for last minute preparation at the conference. Try tacking up the poster before you leave for the conference to see what it will look like and to make sure that you have all of the necessary pieces.

Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It need not, and should not, attempt to include all the details; you can describe them to people who are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. 

The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 25mm high. Below the title put the author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right. Use arrows to lead your viewer through the poster. Use colour for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than text wherever possible. Use text sparingly. Try to state your main result in 6 lines or less, in lettering about 15mm high. This way people can read the poster from a distance. 

People will not read a lot of text, and certainly won't read typewriter-sized text. The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9mm high, and the important points should be in a larger size. If possible, use a sans-serif font, for example Arial.

Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your efforts for technical discussions. 

There will not be any summaries given at the beginning of the poster sessions at CCECE-2005, so authors need not prepare any overhead slides for their poster presentations. 

Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster. Plan on giving this talk several times during your session. Plan to spend the entire session at your poster. 

If possible, more than one author should attend the session to aid in presentations and discussions, and to provide the presenters with the chance to rest or briefly view other posters. 

You may bring additional battery operated audio or visual aids to enhance your presentation. Authors must indicate any such plans in the submission email so that any necessary accommodations can be made.

Note: This conference is being arranged in conjunction with the CCC 2006 conference
