Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in the conference proceedings. An award will be made for the best student paper.

Regular Posters and Student Posters

Regular posters present an overview of already developed research or work in progress. Undergraduate and graduate students may submit an extended abstract (as sole authors) presenting preliminary findings of their research. Poster submissions are extended abstracts limited to two pages in length and will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted abstracts will be presented in a poster format and published in the conference proceedings. An award will be made for the best student poster.


Proposals for workshops and tutorials should include a title, abstract, statement of purpose, objectives, prerequisites, intended audience, duration (1.5 or 3 hours), materials needed (including lab space) and resources to be handed out. Proposals should not exceed two pages.
