Posters and demos
homepage : Posters and demos :Call for posters and demos (passed)

Poster and demo presentations offer researchers a unique opportunity to present late-breaking results, significant work in progress, as well as best-practice reports and application demonstrators. They provide researchers with the opportunity to obtain an immediate feedback about their work from the research as well as the library community. Accepted posters and demos will be displayed during poster and demo sessions, preceded by a plenary poster spotlight presentation session. The poster and demo sessions will allow attendees to have firsthand views of innovative digital library technologies and applications, and to talk informally with researchers and with system developers.

Important dates

Posters and demos submission: March 3 March 11, 2006
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2006

Instructions for authors

Posters and demos will undergo a simplified review process, based on the submitted papers, and will be directly accepted or rejected. The papers of accepted posters and demos will appear in the conference proceedings. No modifications for final versions of the accepted poster abstracts will be possible. Thus, authors are strongly encouraged to double-check that the submitted abstracts strictly adhere to the submission guidelines. Failing to do so may cause the poster to be rejected on formal grounds or exclude it from inclusion in the proceedings. It is the responsibility of authors to ensure that their submissions use no unusual format features and are printable on a standard Postscript printer. While the type of submission (poster/demo) will have to be declared at submission time, the PC reserves the right to recommend moving a contribution from one type to the other with subsequent confirmation by the submitting contact person. Submissions must be in English and consist of a short paper structured into a short abstract (150 words maximum) and a short description (500 words maximum) that emphasizes the research problem, the methodologies, and the techniques used. Text should be formatted accordingly to the Springer LNCS format including references and figures, following the submission guidelines for full papers. (We recommend the use of LaTeX2e for best results and easiest handling of your documents, but Springer also provides a template for Microsoft Windows.) Submissions must contain the extended abstract both in PDF as well as in source format (LaTeX, Microsoft Word or RTF) as a single zipped archive file (gnu-zipped tar files, winzip, rar archives). Additionally, for demos, a separate document specifying any equipment required for the demonstration should be included.

Posters and Demos are to be submitted via the ECDL2006 Conference Management System by the submission deadline.
