Call for Posters

We invite submissions to Eurosys 2014′s poster track. The poster track will provide an opportunity to present early-stage work and receive feedback from the community. Contributions will be selected by the Poster program committee based on a 1-page abstract plus poster draft submitted through the Eurosys Poster submission website:

Topics must fall within the scope of the Eurosys call for papers; thought-provoking or controversial work, approaches, or ideas are particularly encouraged. We particularly encourage submissions of early work that is not yet ready for publication at a refereed conference or journal. We also welcome submissions of posters corresponding to papers presented at Eurosys-affiliated workshops.

Submissions will be judged based on novelty and insightfulness of presented work and how well this insight is conveyed in the poster draft. Preference will be given to student posters presenting exciting new results.

Posters must be submitted by Feb 22, 2014 at 23:59 PST. Authors will be notified of the outcome by March 9, 2014 (or earlier). Accepted posters will be shepherded by members of the PC, to ensure maximum quality. Posters will be presented during a poster session at the conference.

Submissions must include title, author names and affiliations, a note indicating which authors (if any) are students, and an indication of who would present the poster. Poster abstracts can be at most 1 page long, with a text block of maximum 6.5 x 9 inches (16.5 x 22.9 cm), font size of minimum 10pt, up to 2 columns, and at least 12pt leading. Each submission should be accompanied by a PDF draft of the proposed poster included as page 2 of the submission. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected.

At the conference, provided posterboards will be A0 size, hung in a vertical orientation.

Authors of accepted Eurosys papers must provide a poster draft, but do not need to provide the 1-page abstract.
