The International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS) invites submissions 
of high-quality posters. The poster session is intended to showcase 
unpublished work in progress in the topics covered by ICS. The titles, 
abstracts, and authors of accepted posters will be listed in the 
conference proceedings. Eligible student posters will be also included 
into the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC).

General Poster Submission Requirements

All poster participants must submit the following information:

• The title of the poster and a list of author names, affiliations, and 
the name of the academic advisor if it is a student poster.
• A camera-ready abstract of the poster, up to 100 words.
• A separate description outlining the content of the poster, up to 800 
words, which describes the research problem, motivation and background, 
techniques and results, and the prospect for clearly and concisely 
conveying the work in a poster format. Further, it should emphasize the 
novel contributions of the work explicitly.
• Please indicate the eligibility for SRC of your poster & whether you 
are an undergraduate or graduate student. Entering the SRC is optional. 
Competition-eligible posters must be authored solely by an ACM student 
member, with student status as of March 14, 2014.

A panel of experts will evaluate the submissions based on novelty of 
approach, significance of contribution, and quality of work.
