2020 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 submission of posters presenting new work, preliminary results and designs, or educational projects.

Initial submissions (due Monday, Sept. 30) may be up to 2,500 words in length (excluding references), following the Springer LNCS template. This LNCS template is being used for consistency; please note that posters will be deposited into the IDEALS open repository and will not be published by Springer.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, and present them at iConference 2020. 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.

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

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.


  • Submission: Monday, September 23, 2019
  • Notification: mid-November, 2019
  • Final versions for proceedings due: Monday December 16, 2019
  • Completed poster due: at iConference 2020

Submission Information

The following is a brief summary. Poster authors should also familiarize themselves with the detailed requirements and guidelines on our Author Instructions Page.

Submissions will be made using the ConfTool submission system. Submissions must be in English.

Author-identifying information must be withheld from first submissions to facilitate blind review. This means do not include author names. Our submission system will associate your file with your account, so we will know the file is yours. But reviewers must not be able to see author information. If your work is accepted, you will add author name(s) to the final version.

All poster abstracts must follow Springer’s prescribed LNCS format. Abstracts can be up to 2,500 words in length (excluding references).

Submitters agree that if their work is accepted, at least one author will register during the Early Bird registration period, and present the poster at iConference 2020. We reserve the right to withhold publication if there is no registered presenter.

Failure to adhere to the appropriate guidelines on our Author Instructions Page may result in the work not being reviewed, or not included in the proceedings.
