Guidelines for Poster Proposals

Posters will be selected based on quality and relevance, subject to available space.

What should a proposal look like?

All proposals should include two files:

1. A plain text file including the following items:

  • The title
    Select an expressive and attractive title for the poster.
  • The name of the presenter(s)
    Give the full name and the affiliation of the presenter. Please specify the electronic mail address as well. If there are multiple presenters, give this information for all of them and specify who the contact person is.
  • The abstract
    Write a brief description (up to 500) of the presented material.
  • References
    Please give information for further reading (an optional URL).

This information will be included in the ECOOP 2002 pages after the notification of acceptance. As in previous years there are plans for the edition of a post conference reader that will include a chapter dedicated to posters.


2. A PDF file including a preliminary design of the poster to be exposed

Posters will be evaluated both on their technical contributions and on how effectively they communicate those contributions. All posters should include the following items:

  • The body of the poster
    The purpose and goals of the work. Any background and motivation information needed to understand the work. Please also describe any critical hypotheses and assumptions that underlie the work, if appropriate. A summary of the technical contribution and/or results, in sufficient detail for a viewer to understand the work. The relationship to other related efforts, where appropriate. Where to find additional information. Be sure to summarise and highlight the key details, results and contributions, or the anticipated contributions if the work is at an early stage. Please remember that a picture is worth a thousand words. If you can express your contributions effectively visually, it will help viewers to understand the work quickly and will attract more attention to your work. Please ensure that the fonts are large enough to be read comfortably.
  • The time table
    Posters should also include an informal schedule listing times when the authors plan to be available for discussion later on during the conference.
  • The message board
    All posters should include a space to be used as a "message board," on which viewers can post comments, ideas, and questions and on which poster authors can post responses, to further increase interactions and value for everyone.

The board holding your poster has the size of 150 cm (H) * 95cm (W). However, this size could be changed. In this case, authors of accepted posters would be notified about the final size.

NEW!!!!. The final size of the board holding your poster is 96 cm (H) * 190cm (W). This is only important for the submission of the final version of accepted posters. Please, do not care if you have already prepared or submitted your poster proposal with the old size.

For additional questions or clarification, or for your suggestions, please feel free to contact the Poster Chair.

All proposals (including the plain text and the pdf file) should be sent by mail to the Poster Chair.
