ICNP 2011 will hold a poster session to showcase "work-in-progress". This has been a successful regular event at ICNP in past years and has attracted many bright ideas that have developed into mature conference and journal papers over time. The poster session will provide a great chance for students to obtain feedback on their ongoing research from knowledgeable conference attendees. In the past, these sessions have been very well attended. While posters are welcome from everyone, we particularly encourage on-going work in which the primary contributor (i.e., first author) is a student. Extended (2 page) abstracts of the posters, which must be submitted in the Portable Document Format (PDF) only, will be reviewed by members of the Poster Session Committee. The abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the proceedings and in IEEE eXplore.

At the conference, posters must be presented by one of the co-authors. Posters submitted to this call for papers should contain unpublished original ideas and not be abbreviations of published papers. Note that acceptance and presentation of a poster at ICNP 2011 will not prevent authors from publishing a more complete version of their ideas in future conferences and journals.

Important dates

Submission deadline: August 12, 2011 (23:59 PDT)

At least one of the poster co-authors must be registered for the conference to present the poster. Students may register for the conference at the student rate for presenting posters (if they are not presenting a full paper in the conference which requires a full registration).

What the final poster should look like?

We define a poster to be 12 pages 8.5in x11in (letter size) on which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively you can use the space as a continuum. You can arrange the space and orient the poster either horizontally or vertically. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about your work. You are responsible for printing your poster and bringing it to the onference site. We will provide stands for you to mount your poster materials on. For questions: Email
