The poster session mainly features work in progress. Works can be submitted to be presented as posters (which is an A0 2 column copy of the pages in the author instruction kit) instead of oral communications. For poster presentation, a Short Abstract (3-4 pages) must be submitted. Short Abstracts will be published as short papers (3 pages) in the Conference Proceedings. For creating your Short Abstract (3 page paper) go to the submissions page.
