Shining Light on Our Future
||May 1-4, 2005
The following author's guide is provided to ensure
your paper abstract is accepted for review and that, following
acceptance, your complete paper is accepted for presentation AND
session presenters may meet, if required, with their Session Chairs
their session time to discuss arrangements and confirm their presence
at the conference, detailed location assignments, etc.
The times available for consultation will vary, depending on
preferences. You may be contacted by our Session Liason with
further instructions regarding preparation and meeting times..
Poster sessions have become a good way for authors
present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth
technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions
a good way to sample many papers in parallel sessions. Thus it is
important that you display your message clearly and strikingly so as to
attract people who might have an interest in your paper.
Authors will be required to man their Poster for
alloted time slot as indicated in the Final Program.
For your poster, a board will be provided which measures
120cm by 180cm
or 4' by 6' (landscape). Push tacks will be available to tack your
poster to the board.
Carefully and completely prepare your poster well
advance of the conference. There will be no time nor materials
available for last minute preparation at the conference. Try tacking up
the poster before you leave for the conference to see what it will look
like and to make sure that you have all of the necessary pieces.
Your poster should cover the key points of your
need not, and should not, attempt to include all the details; you can
describe them to people who are interested. The ideal poster is
designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work,
and initiate discussion.
The title of your poster should appear at the top
CAPITAL letters about 25mm high. Below the title put the author(s)'
name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from the
top left to the bottom right. Use arrows to lead your viewer through
the poster. Use colour for highlighting and to make your poster more
attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather
than text wherever possible. Use text sparingly. Try to state your main
result in 6 lines or less, in lettering about 15mm high. This way
people can read the poster from a distance.
People will not read a lot of text, and certainly
read typewriter-sized text. The smallest text on your poster should be
at least 9mm high, and the important points should be in a larger size.
If possible, use a sans-serif font, for example Arial.
Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible.
will save your efforts for technical discussions.
There will not be any summaries given at the
of the poster sessions at CCECE-2005, so authors need not prepare any
overhead slides for their poster presentations.
Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10
that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster.
Plan on giving this talk several times during your session. Plan to
spend the entire session at your poster.
If possible, more than one author should attend
session to aid in presentations and discussions, and to provide the
presenters with the chance to rest or briefly view other posters.
You may bring additional battery operated audio or
visual aids to enhance your presentation. Authors must indicate any
such plans in the submission email so that any necessary accommodations
can be made.
