Poster Presentation Information

Location: University Memorial Center, Main Ballroom

Each poster presenter will have a board 4 feet high by 8 feet wide for the poster. Set-up time is during the lunch period of June 9.

Conference breaks/refreshments will take place in the main ballroom to promote discussion around the posters.

Poster authors should be available to discuss their posters during the first break session after the set-up period (June 9, 4:00-4:30). Authors are encouraged to be available during the other conference breaks as well.

The take-down time for the posters will be during the last break before the closing keynote (June 10, 3:30-4:00).

Deadline for submission is extended to March 10, 2005.

Posters should present late-breaking work or promising work in progress that is not quite ready to be presented as a full paper. They should address any of the areas identified in the call for papers. Posters should be designed in such a way as to prompt discussion between the author and conference attendees at the scheduled times within the conference breaks.


Submissions should present original and unpublished work that has not been submitted elsewhere. Authors should write in English and should not cite or provide information or materials that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.

Submissions should include: context for the work, a concise description of the research study or design, results (even if preliminary) and implications of the work. You are encouraged to illustrate the submission with photographs or diagrams.


A poster should be 2 pages and follow the SIGCHI Conference Publications Format ( Posters should be submitted in Microsoft Word format. The posters do not need to be anonymized: they will be regarded as the final camera-ready version of the paper. As there are no opportunities for revision the poster must be clearly written, carefully proof read, and correctly formatted.

Submitting your poster

Your poster must be submitted no later than 5pm, your local time, on March 10, 2005. Submissions arriving after the deadline will not be considered. Click here to submit your poster.

Review Process

Posters will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Reviewers will evaluate posters based on their relevance to the conference, their originality, the significance of their contribution, the validity of their results, and the clarity of the writing. We will select up to ten posters and accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings.


Authors will be notified of the outcome of their submission via email on or before April 4, 2005.

At the Conference

Posters will be displayed during the conference in a central area. The posters on display do not have to be exactly the same format as the printed version in the proceedings as you may choose to include more illustrations. In addition to a display board, each poster area will be provided with table space for additional handouts or models. Authors must be available at the designated times so that they can discuss their findings with conference attendees and they are encouraged to be available during other breaks.
