Poster Session Information

The Posser Session is scheduled for Wednesday, October 3, 2018, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM.

Poster topics include meshing algorithms, mesh modeling, geometry processing, visualization, and mesh adaptation for numerical simulations. Posters are typically of these types:

  1. Research posters describe current work.

  2. Research posters illustrate state-of-the-art techniques. Posters of preliminary results that spur dialogue are encouraged. Posters that augment papers, short courses, and invited talks are encouraged. E.g., a poster might elaborate on a particular technical aspect of a paper, or describe the work of other people on the same project as an invited speaker, or describe a novel mesh feature that is important for a particular application.

  3. Technical posters show off a mesh that is impressive in terms of its difficulty.

  4. Technical posters may present an output mesh that has extrodinary complexity, size, or quality. The poster may also feature a process that is impressive, e.g., in terms of its generality, run time, memory use, or automation. Posters should contain significant technical details, not just pictures. The model may be based on the Meshing Contest, but this is not required.

  5. T-shirt posters feature an image that would make a nice t-shirt for next year's IMR.

  6. T-shirt posters emphasize striking visuals with few technical details.


The poster session will take place during an extended lunch session one day. Presenters will give a one-minute presentation advertising their poster, after which attendees will be encouraged to visit the posters. The attendees will vote on the posters. Two awards will be given: one award is for the top Research or Technical Poster, and the second award is the "Meshing Maestro" for the best T-shirt poster. To participate in the poster session, you must register and attend the conference.

Call for Posters

Submission deadline is August 8, 2018

To propose a poster, submit a one-paragraph abstract describing the poster topic and content. Be sure to consider why it would be interesting to IMR attendees. Abstracts are limited to 100 words.

Prepare a pdf file of your abstract using the same template as papers and research notes: download template.

Submit electronically through the same portal as research notes; see the OpenConf website https://www.openconf.org/IMR27/track2/openconf.php.

Poster proposals will be reviewed by the IMR committee for acceptance. Authors of accepted proposals must submit final electronic versions of the abstract (text using the provided template), one slide for the one-minute advertisement (powerpoint or PDF), and the poster itself (PDF). The abstract will appear in the printed program. The abstract, one slide summary, and poster will be in the conference digital media and the IMR website. Authors must also bring the printed poster, about 3' by 4', to the IMR. Authors frequently supplement their printed poster with a laptop demonstration or visualization, but this is optional. At least one of the poster authors must attend the IMR. The IMR will provide stands for displaying the poster, but otherwise the author is solely responsible for all supplies and logistics, including printing and transport.

A pdf of the poster, along with a 1-page PowerPoint introductory slide must be submitted by September 24, 2018.
