New work, preliminary results and designs, or educational projects are invited for submission as a Poster, which should be around 1,500 words (not including references). Submissions will be refereed in a double-blind process. Authors are encouraged to not submit the same research to the different conference submission categories. For example, authors are discouraged from submitting the same research as a Poster and a Note. Duplicate submissions may not be reviewed or accepted.
For the initial submission, copy should be single-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, no title page. The first page must include title, abstract, and keywords (keywords to be selected from a list to be provided on the submission site). Acknowledgements and references that can identify the authors of the submission must be omitted from the initial submission to facilitate the blind review process. Submissions should be in PDF format. Submissions that do not include keywords will not be reviewed.
The guideline regarding word count is a suggestion. In making their recommendations, reviewers will be asked to consider if the contribution of the Posters is commensurate with its length.
Authors of accepted Posters will submit a final version of their abstract in a properly formatted style (to be specified later); details will be provided in the acceptance notifications. All accepted posters will be published in the IDEALS open repository.
