Call for Student Posters

The ICNP 2006 conference will have a student poster session to showcase "work-in-progress." The poster session will provide an opportunity for students to obtain feedback on ongoing research from knowledgeable conference attendees. The primary contributor (first author) must be a student. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Poster Review Committee. At the conference, student posters must be presented by a student. Posters should not be abbreviations of published papers.

Important Dates

What to submit

You need to submit a **two-page** abstract describing the work. The abstract title should begin with the keyword "Poster:". 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. Please use the IEEE conference proceedings style (2-column) for preparing your abstract. For each author, please include institutional affiliation and status (student, faculty, and so on). 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 two-page limit; non-conforming submissions will not be considered for review. Please note that the abstract should be in PDF format. Word documents will not be reviewed.

At the conference, we will print and distribute the abstracts to all conference attendees in addition to the conference proceedings.

Poster Presentation

We define a poster to be an area ranging from 3x2 feet to 3x4 feet on which you present your research. This could be a single page, or could be divided into about 9 to 18 pages, each 8.5x11 inches (letter size). 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.

We will provide equipment for mounting the posters, but you will have to print (and, if you wish to, laminate or mount on a foam board) the poster and bring it to the conference site. We will ask you for your specific needs as the conference date approaches.
