Posters for GHCI 2014

The goal of the poster session is to provide an opportunity for an informal discussion of one’s research with conference attendees. Furthermore, it is an excellent way to convey ideas and results not yet developed into a full paper.

See here for ideas on how to create a poster.

The Poster Session may include topics from any technical computing field. Work that might already be submitted to another conference is accepted as long as the authors remain the same. All accepted conference material will be published in our online conference proceedings.

Who should submit:

Submissions are encouraged from college or university students but will also be accepted from industry professionals and faculty members.

Who can present at GHC:

Selected individuals will get to present their posters during the poster session to be held on November 19th. One author of each poster accepted is eligible to present at GHC. Multiple people cannot present the same poster.

Submissions Overview:

Submissions will be in the form of an abstract of up to 2 pages (approximately 800 words), that’ll include details on the problem being solved, its significance, the approach adopted, and some key results. Note: You do not have to submit the entire poster. References do not count as part of the 2 page maximum. 

  • Proposal Contents: Your proposal should include as much of the following information as possible: name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address (expect most correspondence by email), WWW address (if applicable), etc.
  • Statement of Topic: A short title.
  • Author(s): Poster authors do not undergo blind review, so your submission should include as much of the following information as possible: name, affiliation, contact information (e.g., address, phone number, and email address, www address, etc.) Email is the preferred method of contact.
  • Problem and Motivation: Problem being addressed and explain the reasons for seeking a solution to this problem, why it is significant, and why it is relevant to your research field.
  • Background and Related Work: Specialized and relevant background necessary to appreciate the work. Include references to the literature where appropriate, and briefly explain how your work is different from related work. Reference lists do not count towards the limit on the length of the abstract.
  • Approach and Uniqueness: Describe your approach in attacking the problem and how it is novel.
  • Results and Contributions: How the results of your work contribute to computer science and the significance of those results. Please feel free to include figures and graphs explaining the solution and results, if necessary.
  • Additionally, you could try and incorporate this year’s theme “Think Different; Make A Difference” in your representation.

Submission Process:

Your uploaded file must be in one of the following formats: PDF, ASCII text, or MS Word, in a double column. We recommend that you use one of these templates as a reference (Latex Link and Word Link) and submit the file in PDF. During the submission process, you will be asked for a separate paragraph (maximum of 100 words) for publication in the conference proceedings that serves as a succinct description of the project.
