IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing: VL/HCC 2011 - September 18-22, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Posters and Demonstrations

Posters and demonstrations provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees in the evening. This venue provides an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers. Presentations may include any combination of a poster, video, or live demonstration. Easels and boards will be available for posters, but demonstrations and videos should use the presenter's personal laptop, as no supporting equipment will be available from the conference.


Submissions must include a two-page abstract and a brief description of the planned presentation:

Publishing and presenting at the conference

Abstracts will normally be printed in the proceedings and be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, just like full and short papers. However, authors may elect to withhold official publication in case they want to avoid any possible conflict with another archival publication.

Despite the restrictions on videos accompanying a submission, the actual videos and demonstrations presented at the conference may be of any length.

Posters should be printed in advance and brought to the conference. We will provide poster stands with a solid backing and a method of attaching the posters to the stands. We expect to be able to accommodate posters of up to 30 inches by 40 inches (either vertical or horizontal).
