Call For Posters

DySPAN 2014 will be organizing a poster session aimed at showcasing work in progress. The poster paper presentation is an opportunity to discuss current work in an informal setting during the DySPAN 2014 conference. Topics of interest are the same as in the main call for papers of DySPAN 2014. Although anyone can submit a poster, preference will be given to posters where the primary contribution is from one or more students. Posters will be rigorously reviewed by TPC members of the DySPAN 2014 under the guidance of poster chair and TPC chairs. At the conference, student posters must be presented by a student. The poster papers should describe original and unpublished work and should not be under review for any other conference or journal.

Why Submit?

This is a great chance especially for students to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference. The posters submissions should include a short poster paper (max. 4 pages) which will be published as a part of conference proceedings in IEEE eXplorer. In the case of exceptional quality the poster papers maybe forwarded for consideration for publication in one of the cooperating journals.
Each poster will be presented by maximum 2 minutes talk in the "2 minutes of madness" plenary session of DySPAN 2014.

Travel Grants for Student Posters

Students who are submitting posters are highly encouraged to examine if they are eligible for student travel grants.

What is DySPAN 2014 Poster

We define a poster to be A0 paper size to 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.


You need to submit a poster paper through EDAS using this direct link.

The maximum length is 4 pages in the same IEEE format as the full conference papers. Optional: if available, the poster itself can be included in the submission if it is small (<1.5MB) else it can be made available at a URL in pdf format, and cited in your poster paper. The poster may be consulted at the discretion of the reviewers. The poster paper 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.
The DySPAN 2014 TPC and Poster Committee will select the most interesting and thought-provoking posters for presentation. We emphasize that posters are not treated as a "second class citizens" in DySPAN 2014. The poster papers will be reviewed as rigorously and are expected to have high quality just like full papers. The main difference is that poster session provides more interactive way to present work, and is particularly well suited for work-in-progress type of discussions.
