We highly encourage diverse, cross-organizational or interdisciplinary panels. Your panel must have a specific core point of contention.

We highly encourage attendees to participate in the poster session, and we are excited to see what you will be presenting! An abstract submission is required for your poster to be accepted.

Celebrations of Women in Computing events host large technical poster sessions. This is the perfect opportunity to informally present your research to conference attendees and experts in your field. Designed to help you solicit constructive feedback, the poster session lends itself to those who are still exploring an idea and have not fully developed their results into a completed paper. Include the title and full abstract of your poster proposal.

Poster Abstract guidelines:

100-word maximum outlining the problem/topic you are researching

Once your abstract submission has been accepted, please include the following in your poster:

Problem and Motivation
Future Work (if applicable)

Posters may be no larger than 3’x4′.
We will assign your space and will provide pushpins.
A map of your location will be provided onsite.
Please be prepared to set up your poster at the poster session on Saturday, April 22, before the Poster Session begins at 10:00 am.

All submissions are reviewed on a fair and even-handed basis across all sub-disciplines. Each reviewer prepares his/her review independently of others looking at the submission. The committee organizes a discussion of the submissions, but only between reviewers who have already submitted a full review in draft.

By March 24, you will receive an email notifying you of our decision regarding your submission.
