  • Conference:


Posters at GPCE provide an excellent forum for authors to present their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters are ideal for presenting speculative, late-breaking results or for giving an introduction to interesting, innovative work. They are intended to provide authors and interested participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity to make their work highly visible during the conference. Therefore, authors of other GPCE technical submissions are encouraged to also submit a poster about their work. Posters will be on display during the entire conference.

Successful posters are carefully designed to convey technical details. They should also have a strong visual impact that attracts the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays, either during the interactive poster session or at other times during the conference. The goal is to develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. The interactive poster session is held early in the conference, to promote continued discussion among interested parties.

Submission Format

The poster itself or the preliminary graphic layout must be submitted as a PDF file. A Poster proposal consists of:

  • a 50 word or less short abstract that summarizes the content of the poster
  • a set of keywords describing the technical area of the work
  • a two-page extended abstract, suitable for inclusion in the GPCE 2004 Conference CD
  • the poster itself, or a preliminary graphic layout of the poster (please review the poster content guidelines)

The preliminary graphic layout should consist of 1 to 3 pages that sketch the layout for an ?.?? meter (wide) by ?.?? meter (high) bulletin board. Please use 10 point or larger font in the preliminary layout, and 12 point or larger in the final poster, so that it is readable. Once you have submitted your proposal, you will receive confirmation by e-mail that your proposal has been received and is complete.

Please send poster proposals to the GPCE 2004 Posters Chair TBA to arrive no later than TBA. For additional information, clarifications, questions, or special requirements, please also contact .

Submission Guidelines

Posters cover the same interest areas as the Technical Papers, Demonstrations, and Workshops, and provide an opportunity to present work in a highly visual and interactive format:

  • Conference participants who are giving technology demonstrations should consider presenting posters that contain overviews of their demonstrations, both to attract additional attendance at demonstrations and to increase the visibility of their tools.
  • Technology providers can showcase their tools and technologies with posters.
  • The poster session provides graduate students with an outstanding forum in which to present and discuss their PhD work.
  • Research laboratories and projects can introduce themselves and their key efforts to the community by presenting posters.
  • Workshop organizers and/or attendees may present posters that summarize results from GPCE 2003 workshops. The poster session provides workshop participants a means of communicating their key results to the rest of the community.
  • Authors of work that is presented in the GPCE technical program can obtain even more benefit by presenting their work in a poster as well. The poster session provides them the opportunity to engage in more personal one-on-one discussions.

Suggestions for other key topic areas are also encouraged.

Poster authors are required to attend the scheduled interactive poster session, staying with their poster so that they can discuss their work with conference attendees. Some poster authors also post an informal schedule along with their poster, listing times when they plan to be available for discussion later on during the conference. Others leave sign-up sheets for interested viewers to obtain further information. All posters will have an associated "message board", on which viewers can post comments, ideas, and questions and on which poster authors will be able to post responses.

Posters are advertised in the Final Program, and authors' two-page extended abstracts will appear in the GPCE Conference CD, which will be distributed at to all GPCE'04 attendees. Attendees will be able to learn more about individual posters before or after visiting the exhibit.
