   Guidelines for making posters



The poster presentations at the SCEE2002 will have a prominent role in the program. Every poster presentation will include a short (2.5 minutes; only a single sheet allowed) plenary talk. There will be a special session of such short talks before each poster session. The goal of this talk is to draw attention to your poster.

All accepted abstracts for poster presentation will be published in the Book of Abstracts. Moreover, final papers of oral and poster presentations have equal opportunity to be accepted for the final Proceedings, which will be reviewed separately.

Poster guidelines

Keep the following guidelines in mind when preparing your poster.

Short plenary talk

Every poster presentation includes a short (2.5 minutes) plenary talk. Before each poster session, there is a plenary session consisting of such short talks. The goal of these short talks is to draw attention to your poster. Of course, it is not possible to give an in-depth overview of your research in such a short time. The in-depth overview of your research should be presented during the poster session. Keep the following guidelines in mind when preparing your short talk. Remember that this short talk is only to "advertise" your poster presentation. The only goal of the short talk is to catch people's attention. Therefore, it is of vital importance that you keep it short, and that you are present at the poster presentation.

Printing service

As a special service to our participants, we provide a printing service for posters. Please submit your poster by e-mail prior to June 9, 2002, and we will print it out for you on portrait A1 format (width 59.4 cm, height 84.1 cm) in colour, and bring it to the Conference. After the Conference, you can take the poster with you. This service is free of charge.

To make use of this service, follow these guidelines:

  1. Prepare your poster as a PostScript file. Other formats, e.g. PDF, will not be accepted. Look at the examples below.
  2. The format of your poster should be portrait A4. We will enlarge it to portrait A1 format.
  3. E-mail your poster to houben@natlab.research.philips.com. Note that this is a different e-mail address, which should be used for submitting posters.
  4. Make sure you do this before June 9, 2002. After this date, we cannot print the poster for you anymore.

You can create your poster with LaTeX. Note that it is strongly recommended to use the following packages:

  \usepackage{times}
  \usepackage{mathtime}
These packages make sure that standard PostScript fonts are used, rather than Knuth's Computer Modern fonts. This makes sure that your poster prints OK on any PostScript printer, and that it looks good when viewed on any computer system with the standard PostScript fonts installed.

Example posters

We provide two examples of creating a poster in LaTeX.
Note that it is recommended that you personalize these examples to your own taste, so as to prevent that all posters look too similar.
  1. The first example (view as PDF file) shows how a new poster can be made using LaTeX.
    This is the recommended way to create a poster.
    View LaTeX file
    Get example as Unix .tar.gz file.
    Get example as Windows .zip file.
  2. The second example (view as PDF file) shows how an existing 4-page paper in PostScript format can be adapted as a poster.
    Note that the resulting poster will tend to look very boring. It is much better to be selective in what you want to put on your poster. Try to present only key ideas, with engaging graphics.
