Poster (see detailed requirements
at the end of this Call)

A poster presentation consists of an exhibit of materials that report research activities or informational resources in visual and summary form. Poster presentations provide a unique platform that facilitates personal discussion of work with interested colleagues and allows meeting attendees to browse through highlights of current research. Posters allow the presenter(s) more time for the presentation, a direct approach with those attending/visiting the session, as well as the opportunity to present data, graphics, charts, photographs and other information in a more detailed way, favoring both the presenter and the public.

Space is set aside for these presentations. Anyone wishing to propose a poster presentation should provide an abstract (see above) along with a mockup of the actual poster display.


A symposium consists of a group of closely coordinated papers by different authors that are designed to address a particular issue or problem, usually with one or two discussants. Proposals for symposia should provide the same information as for papers for each participant including the symposium chair and discussants. The program chair reserves the right to add papers to a symposium proposal. Those who propose a symposium are responsible for arranging the participation of all symposium members and submitting the required information for each participant.


A roundtable is a more informal discussion among people of contrasting or complementary points of view. Although roundtable participants do not write formal papers, proposals for roundtables should include the same information as for a paper (see above) for each participant. Those who propose roundtables are responsible for arranging the participation of all roundtable members. Participants may be required to present brief opening statements.


A workshop is an extended session involving some kind of participation, application, or demonstration. Size is limited; there is advance registration and a fee for participants. Proposals for a workshop should include the name, professional affiliation, and complete mailing address, telephone, fax, and email of the organizer with a title and reasonably full description of the activity.
