Escience 2021: Call for Posters

This page provides information about poster submissions to the eScience
2021 conference. It is part of the general Call for Papers
(https://www.escience2021.org/call-for-papers) which you should read
first, if you have not yet done so.
Accepted two page posters proposals will be published in the main
conference IEEE Proceedings through the IEEE Digital Library. If you
have any questions that neither this page nor the Call for Papers can
answer, please contact the poster chair

Poster presentation

EScience poster sessions provide an opportunity to share  ideas in a
less formal setting than a paper presentation. Contact the poster chair
for further information.
A poster is a single page document, typically combining text and images,
that embodies a succinct description of work that has been done.
Presenting a poster is a good way to discuss and receive feedback on a
work in progress that has not been fully developed into a paper. Posters
should not re-present previously published work.
Poster proposal review will not be double blind. eScience 2021 will be
held on-line, and we expect presenters will be able to present their
poster via videoconference during a dedicated time slot. More
information on that will be made available on the conference page. This
would be similar to how poster presenters would interact with attendees
in person – attendees can (virtually) attend your presentation and ask
questions in real time. More details about presentation formats and
materials will be provided once the virtual format of eScience has been
Please note that at least one contributor is required to register,
attend and present the poster.

Poster topic ideas

The topic of a poster presentation is not limited. However, the topic
should lend itself to presentation in poster format, ideally with
additional details available in the form of web references. You might
consider a poster presentation of materials that you would like to
share, or preliminary research findings. Examples might include (but are
not limited to):

    - life sciences
    - health research
    - digital humanities and social sciences
    - engineering
    - physics
    - chemistry
    - astronomy
    - climate science
    - environmental science
    - earth science

Formatting the poster

Suggestions for poster design are e.g. given here:
http://xrds.acm.org/article.cfm?aid=332138 . Although these suggestions
were published for student researchers, the ideas are also applicable to
posters for this conference.

Formatting the poster proposal

A poster proposal comprises two pages page, in PDF format, explaining
what the poster is about. The full proposal contains an abstract and a
body that describes your poster (as detailed below).

Authors are invited to submit poster proposals (2 pages) for an oral
presentation using the IEEE 8.5×11 manuscript guidelines: double-column
text using single-spaced 10-point font on 8.5×11-inch pages. Templates
are available from

Poster proposal contents

Authors are invited to submit a 2-page paper for a poster presentation
using the same template as for papers (see main conference page)
including figures and references.

A poster proposal will typically include the following information:
    - Title: a title for the poster.
    - Proposer: include name, affiliation, and email address.
Correspondence related to the conference will be sent by email. Please
check your spam filter if you haven’t received an expected notification
because the bulk emails generated by the conference software are
sometimes blocked.
    - Abstract: a description of the poster. The same abstract will also
need to be copied into a text box on the submission page. Please be sure
that your description is accurate and that both submitted copies (in the
PDF poster proposal and in the submission text box) are exactly the same.
    - Content: A description of the expected content of the poster,
along with an indication of why the topic is significant: why conference
attendees will find it interesting.
