Guidelines for Paper Submission

Modes of Presentation

The program committee will schedule both oral and poster sessions. The abstract and summary of both oral and poster papers are published in the same manner in the Conference Program and the Technical Digest on CD-ROM. On the electronic submission form, all authors will be asked for their presentation format preference.

Please note: The presentation types for postdeadline sessions are oral only. The times for these presentations are shorter than 15 minutes, and will be specified in the author's notification letter.

Oral Sessions

The presentation times for oral sessions are as follows: contributed presentations are 15 minutes each, invited talks are 30 minutes. Each presentation will break for questions during the last 2–3 minutes.

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are scheduled to provide an opportunity for selected papers to be presented in greater visual detail and should facilitate vivid discussions with attendees. For poster sessions, authors are provided with bulletin boards on which to display their papers, along with a sign indicating their paper numbers, and push–pins or adhesive tape. Presenters should display paper titles, lists of authors and author affiliations on their posters. Authors must remain in the vicinity of their bulletin boards for the duration of the session to answer questions. Note that poster presenters are not supplied with any audiovisual equipment. Those requiring such equipment should refrain from requesting the poster only or poster preferred formats on the submission form.
