Call for poster presentations
Poster presentations provide an ideal opportunity for the exchange of ideas and expertise within and between the various computing technology related domains represented at the conference. Poster submissions should describe topical research related but not limited to the 8 mentioned domains of 12th ICGS3-19.
In essence a poster is an illustrated abstract, a short story of the status of your research.
Poster presenters will be given the possibility to present their posters to the conference audience in a rapid-fire flash session before the scheduled poster session. Posters with the most stimulating content will be recognized in an award ceremony on the final day of the conference.
Submission and Review Process
For with each poster submission an abstract limited to 500words must be submitted. This abstract must describe the research presented in the poster. The abstract must be clear on
- The research outline
- The status of the research (progress made etc.)
- Discoveries, accomplishments and obstacles
- What you add to the current knowledge pool
- Conclusion, findings and future work to be done
Relating to your poster, you must also provide the following information:
- Topic: A title for the poster of no more than 20 words.
- Domain: A primary and (optionally) secondary domain(s)
- Author details: Full names and contact details of author(s).
Poster submissions should be made through the ICGS3 online submission portal, and will be reviewed by domain experts from the ICGS3 review Committee. All poster abstracts will follow a double blind peer review process, and once your abstract is accepted, you will be required to prepare a poster, and present the poster at the ICGS3 conference.
The abstract will be published in the program and should be written to attract those who work directly in the field and in related areas.
Poster material should be well labelled and legible from a distance of 0.5m. The title should be the same as the title submitted with the abstract and appear in boldface at the top.
Poster boards will accommodate A0 and A1 -sized posters in long portrait orientation. The minimum poster size recommended is 60cm by 91cm so attendees can see the poster at a minimum of 0.5m away.
Presenters of a poster will be expected to be present at the ICGS3 conference and will be expected to present their posters in order to explain their research. This will also allow presenters to hand out any leaflets, or other information material they have available for viewers of your poster. Each presenter can therefore only present one poster. Any academic or organization that submits more than one poster application should indicate a priority to their submissions or confirm there will be enough presenters available for presenting each poster.
It is important that applicants describe in their abstract how they intend to present the project in the poster format – what kind of visual materials they will use, for example, photographs, data samples, graphs, et cetera, and how these illustrate the project or a particular aspect of the work. The poster has to be an experience in itself for the one who looks at it – and should show awareness of the format of a poster-session and its purpose to engage the viewer in conversation.
