Authors whose abstracts are accepted for oral presentations or technical posters and who submit a final paper are expected to attend the IPWE 2012 conference, pay the appropriate registration fees and make their presentation(s) in person.
Expenses related to preparing and presenting the papers, including camera-ready manuscripts and illustrations, are the responsibility of the authors and coauthors.
Paper submissions are limited to 10 pages in length, 10 MB, and Microsoft Word format. Text should be formatted in font sizes 10-12, and in a legible font such as Times New Roman or Arial. If you have difficulty uploading your paper, and it falls below 10 MB, please contact Patrick at MIRA for assistance.
Additional formatting instructions can be found on the following template. Click here to view the sample paper template.
Plan to mount your materials at least 15 minutes prior to the opening of the session. All illustrations, charts, etc., to be posted should be prepared in advance as materials for these purposes will not be available at the conference facilities. You will need to bring your own supply of push pins. It is also recommended that you bring extra copies of your illustrations or a signup sheet for people to request copies of your information. However, no duplication facilities will be available at the conference.
A poster board will be assigned to poster presenters, with dimensions 1.22 m tall by 2.44 m wide (4' x 8'). You will have one side of the partition and another poster presenter will use the other side of the board.
Each poster must have a heading in very large type, 84 pt or greater. Your name and affiliation should also be noted in large type, around 72 pt. Headings and subheadings should be at least 36 pt. You need not use all capitals for titles and headings, for this can sometimes make them difficult to read. Other lettering, including text and lettering on illustrations or charts, should be between 18 and 24 pt, and should have double or 1.5 spacing between lines. Use a simple font such as Times, Arial or Helvetica throughout your presentation. To make something stand out, use a larger font size, bold or underline. You can also frame a section of text by putting a box around it. All material should be readable from a distance of three feet or more.
Any format that fits in the available space is acceptable. Some posters are prepared as one, large sheet and usually brought to the conference rolled up in a tube. You may need to locate a large format printer for this purpose, e.g., at a copy store. Other posters are prepared as a group of smaller sheets, which may be easier to prepare and transport. The format is up to you. Remember that you can refer to your proceedings paper for additional details. Do not simply bring a normal sized copy of your proceedings paper!
Important Note: Space will not be available for computer aided poster presentations.
