Call for Posters
Poster presentations offer researchers a unique opportunity to present
late-breaking results, significant work in progress, or research that is
best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Poster
presentations further provide researchers with an opportunity to
obtain feedback about their work from a wide range of persons during the
poster session. Please note however, that posters describing work at the
proposal stage cannot be accepted.
Poster submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the
call for papers. Two-page abstracts of posters will appear in the
Submissions must be in English and consist of an extended abstract (of 2

features and are printable on a standard Postscript printer.

identity where it is practical to do so. Poster proposals must be
submitted by February 25, 2005. They must be submitted electronically via
the submission web page.
