General Information

We invite submissions to the poster category of ISS 2021.

The ISS 2021 poster program offers an engaging venue to present and discuss new and developing research. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage work and work-in-progress, to establish potential collaborations and to discuss the burning issues in ISS 2021 in an informal manner with the larger community during the interactive poster session.

Work that is best suited for a poster submission includes - but is not limited to - preliminary results, thought-provoking and current topics, novel experiences and/or prototypes that have not been fully tested but show great promise, summaries of small-scale studies, design-led explorations of interactive tabletops, surfaces and spaces.

A poster submission will allow you to:

  • Introduce your poster online to an international audience. There will also be a Best Poster Award at the conference.
  • Publish an extended abstract of the poster in the electronic conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Publish an optional video of up to 3 minutes long in electronic conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Preparing the Submission

All submissions must include:

  • An extended abstract with a maximum of 6 pages in the ACM Master Article Submission Template.
  • An electronic poster design using a provided web-based interface. Access to this interface will be granted after the extended abstract has been accepted for presentation.
  • A short video of up to 3 minutes long and at most 100MB in size presenting the research displayed in the poster (optional).

1. Document submission

The submission document should not be longer than 6 pages. It must include all figures and references, and use the ACM Master Article Submission Templates. The submission should include a description of the relevance of the work to the immediate ISS conference community, as well as to the broader ISS community, emphasizing its novelty, uniqueness, and rationale. The extended abstract should include a concise description of the idea, the results or findings, supporting imagery and figures, and a discussion of the implications of the work to the selected domain. Full literature reviews are not expected, although relevant citations should be included.

2. Poster Design

Your poster should be designed to effectively communicate your research problem, technique, and results. In particular, you should highlight what is novel and important about your work. The reviewers will provide feedback and guidance on your poster design, so it is in your best interest as an author to put effort into your poster design. However, note that only the extended abstract and video (if submitted) will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

3. Video

A video presenting the research displayed in the poster may be submitted along with the written document. The video must be no longer than 3 minutes and must be less than 100 MB in size. Please make sure that your video is playable on standard PC and Macintosh computers. We recommend that you encode your video as an MP4 using the H.264 codec. Submitted videos may be used on the ISS website during and after the virtual conference. Be sure to have permission for all content, and use rights-free music tracks.

Submissions should not be anonymized. Accepted submissions will be published in the ACM digital library. The reviewing of abstracts will be single-blind -- that is, your submission should *not* be anonymized but reviewers will remain anonymous to you. As there is a short time after notifications to the final camera-ready deadline, it is not possible to make large changes before the camera-ready deadline. Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form which will be provided to accepted authors. All submissions conflicting with one or more guidelines will be removed before the reviewing process to assure that all posters can be reviewed and published on-time (desk-rejection). Your extended abstract, poster design, and optional video should be submitted by September 3rd, 2021, to the Precision Conference System.

Selection Process

Posters will be reviewed by the poster chairs with the help of members of the ISS 2021 Posters Committee.

Upon acceptance of your poster

Upon acceptance, ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to complete. Once completed, we will provide you with the new copyright information to be put on your paper. You can then submit the final version (including the new copyright notice) through the Precision Conference System by 15th October, 2021.

For each accepted poster, at least one author must register for the ISS 2021 conference. The authors are expected to present the accepted posters at the conference throughout the poster session. Authors will also be required to upload a still image as well as a one minute preview video that will both be used to advertise the demonstration before and during the conference.

More details will be provided in the following weeks regarding the organization during the conference and the adaptation that will be implemented due to the virtual format of this year’s ISS conference.
