iConference poster sessions provide an opportunity for present and future thought-leaders to display and discuss their research with key members of the information field. We welcome submissions of posters presenting new work, preliminary results and designs, or educational projects. Submitted posters must be original work, not published elsewhere. 

First submissions will consist of a poster proposal. After reviews are complete, accepted authors will then create a final graphical poster for presentation at the iConference.

Presentation

All accepted posters will be presented virtually during iConference 2024 on the SCOOCS platform. Similar to research papers, they will be presented one-at-a-time in a series of individual presentations. Presentation instructions will be provided with acceptance notifications. All authors who presented online will also have the opportunity to present at the on-site program.

Publication

Accepted completed posters and final poster abstracts will be published in the IDEALS open repository. Authors are also allowed to deposit their work into their school's institutional repository if they so choose.

Best Paper Award

The best Poster will be awarded with a sum of $300.

On-Site

Presentation On-Site in Changchun

If you have requested an additional poster presentation slot on-site in Changchun, please prepare a physical poster, which will be displayed on poster racks in the conference hotel venue. The dimensions of your physical poster should not exceed 160cmx60cm and be vertically aligned. As with the virtual presentation, you will present your poster in a dedicated session. Your 5-minute presentation will be followed by a short Q&A. You are welcome to use slides.

You also have the option to have your poster printed by the local team. This way you would avoid the transportation. The poster would be ready for pick up at the hotel venue. 

If you decide to have your poster printed by the local team, please send your poster in JPG format with a resolution of at least 72 dpi (higher resolution is preferred) to Dr. Yunfei Xing by 31 March and include admin@ischools-inc.org in cc.

Note that printing your poster on-site by the local team would cost 12-13 US Dollars, which you can pay in cash during pick up on-site. Change money might be limited by the local posters team; if possible, have the exact amount ready to avoid delays and complications.

Feel free to contact admin@ischools-inc.org anytime if you have any questions.
