Poster Session Information

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

  1. Research posters

    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 also encouraged. For example, a poster might elaborate on a particular technical aspect of a paper, or describe the research of other people on the same project.

  2. Technical posters

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

  3. Visual posters

    Visual posters emphasize striking visuals with few research or technical details. For example, these posters may feature an image that would make a nice t-shirt for the next year’s IMR.

Poster Session

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 for the best visual image in a poster from any category is known as the "Meshing Maestro" Award. To participate in the poster session, one must register and attend the conference.

Call for Posters

Poster abstract submission deadline: August 15, 2019

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. For additional information on submitting your poster abstract and to download the template visit the Paper Submission webpage.

Poster proposals will be reviewed by the IMR committee for acceptance. Authors of accepted proposals must submit final electronic versions of the abstract (using the provided template), one slide for the one-minute advertisement (PowerPoint or PDF), and the poster itself (PDF). 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. At least one of the poster authors must attend the IMR. The IMR will provide stands and poster boards for displaying the poster, but otherwise the author is solely responsible for all supplies and logistics, including printing and transport.

The required pdf of the poster, along with a one-page PowerPoint introductory slide must be submitted by September 22, 2019.
