Call for Posters

The ICNP 2005 conference will have a student poster session to showcase "work-in-progress". The poster session will provide a great chance for students to obtain feedback on ongoing research from knowledgeable conference attendees. The primary contribution (first author) must be from one or more students. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Poster Session Committee. At the conference, student posters must be presented by a student. Posters should not be abbreviations  of published papers.

Important Dates

  • Electronic submission address: icnp05-posters@lists.cs.ucr.edu
  • Submission deadline: Sep 15, 2005, 17:00 PDT (Hard deadline)
  • Notification of decisions: Oct 10, 2005
  • Final version of abstracts and posters: Oct 15, 2005  (only 5 days after notification)

What to submit: You need to submit a two-page abstract (font at least 11pt) describing the work. The abstract should identify the key contribution of the work being presented in the poster. In addition, it should describe the particular  problem being addressed, what makes this problem interesting or important, and what your approach is to the problem. Preference will be given to new and exciting problems as opposed to  thorough but incremental pieces of work. We recommend that you use the ACM conference style for preparing your abstract. Include the title, authors, institutional affiliations, status (student, faculty, and so on) of each author and an email address of the contact author. In the final version of the abstract, you should also include a URL that will provide additional information about your work to the attendees.

   Your abstract should not exceed the page limit and the font size; non-conforming submissions will not be considered for review. Please remember that the abstract should be in PDF format. Word documents will not be accepted.


At the conference, we intend to distribute the abstracts to all conference attendees in addition to the conference proceedings. Accepted poster authors will have a chance to revise their abstract prior to printing. For the posters, we will provide poster board and equipment for mounting the posters.

What the final poster should be like:

We define a poster to be 12 pages 8.5in x11in (letter size) on which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively you can use the space as a continuum.  You can arrange the space and orient the poster either horizontally or vertically. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about your work.
