The ISCRAM2009 Student Poster Session will be held on Sunday May 10 2009 from 16:00 till 17:30, just after the PhD Colloquium finishes. Unlike the PhD Colloquium, the Student Poster Session is an open event and offers a great venue for Bachelor, Master, and PhD students to present research plans and/or (initial) research results. Presenters can benefit from discussion with the other students and researchers.

Submission requirements:

Submissions consist of a single PDF file (Max 2 pages), formatted in accordance with the PhD Colloquium paper submission instructions .

It should contain the title of the poster, name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s), and an extended abstract of 300-500 words (excluding figures and references) describing the conducted and/or proposed research. It should state the contribution and originality of the work clearly and explicitly, including just enough background to make clear how the work differs from significant prior research. Authors are encouraged to describe how they intend to visually present their work, and may include figures that will be used for the poster. The submission should not exceed two pages, including all figures and references, and should be sent by March 10, 2009 to

Note: Applications for the PhD-colloquium will automatically be considered for the poster session.


Authors will be informed by March 15, 2009 on the acceptance decision. Each submission will be reviewed based on the quality of the abstract and its relevance to the field of ISCRAM.

The Student Poster Session is not an archival publication that constrains future submissions. Your poster is not considered to be a prior publication of the work and may be reused for later publications if appropriate. Neither the abstract nor the poster will be published in the ISCRAM conference proceedings, but might be disseminated in another way.

Poster requirements:

Upon acceptance, the authors are expected to create, print, and bring their poster to the ISCRAM conference. The poster is expected to follow the International Standards Organization (ISO) A1 size format in portrait orientation. The dimensions for A1 format are 594mm ◊ 841mm (23.4 ◊ 33.1 inches).

The visual presentation of the work should engender discussion between author and attendees. The authors are free to use their creativity in designing their poster, with the following limitations:
– The top 11 cm of the page will only contain the title, name and affiliation of the author(s). – The bottom of the page will contain the ISCRAM2009 logo, 9 cm in height and centered.

A Powerpoint template with these two elements will be made available on the ISCRAM website.

At the conference:

First authors of posters that are accepted must be registered as a student for the conference. You will be assigned a time and place where to hang your own poster, and will be provided with the necessary equipment to hang it. Audiovisual and computing equipment will not be supplied, and power outlets will not be available.
