Poster Session Information

Poster Session

Registration for the Poster Session can be done on Monday or Tuesday at the registration table. The poster session will feature two categories of posters:

  1. Demonstrations of meshes from which the Meshing Maestro award is selected. The mesh may be based on the model used in the Meshing Contest or a model of your own choice.

  2. Technical exhibits of current research in mesh and grid generation.

From the first category, the annual Meshing Maestro is selected by attendees of the poster session. The winner has the opportunity to have their design used for next year's conference tee shirt. The primary criterion used by the peer review for the Meshing Maestro award is based on the aesthetic appeal of the mesh. Therefore, in this category, we solicit posters that emphasize striking visuals with few technical details.

The second category, Best Technical Poster, is an ideal forum for authors who would prefer not to submit a formal technical paper, but would like to illustrate state-of-the-art techniques and procedures in which they are currently involved. Session speakers are also invited to display practical results of their work at the poster session. The conference organizing committee will select winners from this category for the best technical and best student posters taking into consideration voting ballots received from conference attendees.

To participate in the poster session, you must be attending the conference.

Call for Posters

The posters are sought for the 25th International Meshing Roundtable (25th IMR), September 27-29, 2016, Washington, DC.

Technical posters are ideal showcases for authors to present state-of-the-art techniques and procedures, innovative contributions, high-impact and preliminary results, on-going research projects, and practical applications.

Topics related to technologies and applications of mesh generation in various areas are all appropriate. Potential topics include but not limited to: meshing algorithms, mesh modelling, geometry processing, visualization, and mesh adaptation for numerical simulations.

Authors who have already submitted a technical paper are encouraged to submit a poster as well.

The posters will be reviewed by the 25th IMR committee members. Accepted posters will be displayed throughout the conference days for presenters to discuss their work with attendees. There will be organized sessions during the conference for the presenters to introduce their posters. They will be also available through the 25th IMR's website.

Quality

Technical posters should contain significant technical details, not just pictures, for the described methods and results. A list of guidelines for preparing posters is given below.

Awards

The “Meshing Maestro” and the “Best Technical Poster Award” will be given. All posters will be evaluated and voted by the attendees. The voting ballots will ask for the preferred 1st and 2nd poster in each category. The conference steering committee will select the winners.

Submission Details

Submitted posters should be in the form of an abstract, no longer than 200 words, which must be formatted according to the IMR Author's guidelines and may be accompanied by a preliminary version of the actual poster if the authors wish it.

Submissions will be made electronically through the same process as for the full papers and may be completed by visiting https://www.openconf.org/imr2016/track2/openconf.php. For instructions, see the Paper Submission webpage.

Authors will be notified in time for submission of a final version in two formats, an abstract, no longer than 200 words, and an A4 version of the final poster. Both formats will be included in the conference digital media and will be available through the 25th IMR website.

Final Posters have to be provided in a landscape A0 format (841 mm x 1189 mm or 33.1" x 46.8").

For any question concerning poster submissions please contact the posters chair.

Deadlines

The submission deadline for posters is 23:59 UTC/GMT, on Monday, August 15th, 2016. Notification to authors will be on Monday, August 22th, 2016. The authors are invited to contact the poster chair if they need an early acceptance notification.

Guidelines for preparing posters

In order to help the interaction with IMR attendees, we suggest the following guidelines:

  1. The originality of the approach must be emphasized as best as possible. Clearly explain the main contributions of the approach comparing to relative state-of-the art works (including bibliography references).
  2. The main features of the proposed solution must be given. This may include the main steps of an algorithm, time and space complexities, underlying mathematical background, new scheme formulation, known limitations, etc.
  3. Many pictures must illustrate the proposed solution;
  4. Examples and benchmark results are encouraged;
  5. Final Posters have to be provided in a landscape A0 format (841 mm x 1189 mm or 33.1" x 46.8");
  6. Minimal font policy is 14pt;
  7. Name of authors, logos and addresses of institution must be given at the top of the poster;
  8. Pay special attention to the quality of the pictures.
