Posters provide an opportunity for an informal presentation featuring "give and take" with conference attendees. Presenting a poster is also a good way in which to discuss and receive feedback on a work in progress that has not been fully developed into a paper.
Posters should not be previously published or a previous poster.
Poster proposal review is not blind.
Graduate or undergraduate students submitting posters may instead wish to submit to the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) held at SIGCSE 2012. Like normal posters, SRC posters are displayed at the conference, but the top poster authors also present their work and may win prizes and proceed to the international ACM Student Research Competition.
The topic of a poster presentation is not limited. However, the topic should lend itself to presentation in poster format with additional details available in a handout or URL. You might consider a poster presentation of teaching materials that you would like to share or preliminary research findings, such as:
Suggestions for poster design are given in Research Posters 101. (Although these suggestions were published for student researchers, the ideas are also applicable to posters for this conference.)
Poster presentations at SIGCSE will be competitive and if your proposal is accepted, your poster will be displayed for a 2-hour time period Friday during the conference. You will be expected to "present" your poster at that time. At least one author for each accepted poster must register for and attend the conference. The space available for your poster will be 4 feet high by 8 feet wide with a small shelf below. Power sources are not available.
Poster proposals consist of two documents: The full poster proposal (submitted in PDF format) and a poster abstract (description) which must be entered into a text box on the submission page. The full proposal is used for review and includes a copy of the poster abstract. The format for the proposal should be as follows.
Your proposal should include as much of the following information as possible. Please limit your proposal to two (2) pages. A list of the poster titles and authors will be included in the conference proceedings and the program. Poster proposals are not published.
The abstract is the description of the poster that will appear on the conference web pages. The description is limited to 150 words and must match verbatim the abstract section of the Poster Proposal. The poster abstract must be submitted in plain text. The abstract for an accepted proposal may contain a URL with more information. Abstracts of accepted posters can be edited in response to reviews. The revised, final abstract will appear on the web pages.
Deadline: All electronic submissions must be received by Monday, October 28, 2013 at 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST).
