Call Description

Poster submissions should highlight early stage research outcomes that show promise for maturing into a future paper submission. Submissions can be up to 4 pages in length, excluding references. Any of the topics of interest to the conference (see Call for Papers) may be addressed in the poster. Posters will be showcased at the conference during a dedicated poster session. Authors will have the opportunity to discuss the work with conference attendees and receive feedback.

For the review process, authors must submit their four page research paper and must include a draft of the poster display that has been reduced to one standard page in size. The poster display must be submitted as a supplementary document in the submission system. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the quality of the poster display as part of the review process. Submissions without a poster display will be rejected. The physical posters presented at the conference can be either A1 or A0 size.

Posters will be reviewed independent of other tracks. Therefore, for example, if authors want to submit both a poster and a technical demonstration, then the authors need to make two separate submissions, one for the poster and one for demonstration, as described in the respective calls.


The four page research paper should use the format and templates described in the Call for Papers. The only requirement for the draft of the poster display is that it be reduced to one standard page for review. The paper and draft of the poster display must be in PDF. The total size of all submitted materials, including a video figure, should not exceed 100 Mb. If you are unsure of what constitutes a well-formed technology demonstration submission, see the many examples in the ACM Digital Library for our conference.

Video figures (optional)

Video figures may accompany a poster submission for the purpose of review. They are strongly encouraged but not required. The CHI and UIST guides to producing video figures are useful.

Anonymization Policy

All posters must be anonymized for review. Author and affiliation sections and credits must be left blank. Authors of accepted submissions will add this information in preparation of the "camera-ready" version. We are using the ACM CHI Anonymization Policy of blind reviewing. We use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text color of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that identifying information does not appear in the document's meta-data (e.g., the 'Authors' field in your word processor's 'Save As' dialog box). Authors should cite their own work in the third person, e.g., avoid "As described in our previous work [10], ... " and use instead "As described by [10], ..."

Attendance Policy

At least one author of an accepted poster is required to pay the appropriate registration fee and is required to attend the conference in-person to present the work.
