2021 Posters Call

iConference poster sessions provide an opportunity for present and future thought-leaders to display and discuss their research with key members of the information field. We welcome submissions of posters presenting new work, preliminary results and designs, or educational projects.

Initial submissions (due Monday, Oct. 5) may be up to 2,500 words in length (excluding references), following the Springer LNCS template. The LNCS template is used for consistency; please note that posters will be deposited into the IDEALS open repository and will not be published by Springer.

First submissions will be double-blind reviewed, so all author-identifying information must be excluded from this version. The poster chairs will announce their decisions in mid-November based on reviews. Authors of accepted posters next submit a final abstract for inclusion in the conference’s official proceedings; this version must include author-identifying information. The posters proceedings will be permanently housed in the IDEALS open repository.

Finally, authors will produce their posters for presentation. Authors may design their presentation poster however they wish, so long as it fits within the available space (i.e. what the display space can accommodate). Poster dimensions will be announced at a later date.

iConference 2021 will take place entirely virtually. The hybrid in-person option is rescinded. All authors should plan for remote presentation.

Complete submission information can be found on our Author Instructions Page.

For more information and inspiration, we encourage you to review the official proceedings of past iConferences.

Please see the Submission Information below for additional details. Questions should be directed to the posters chairs.
