Posters Call for Participation

Call For Posters

Submission Deadline: June 19, 2020 AoE

Posters represent the cutting-edge of the UbiComp / ISWC program. Following the long fruitful tradition of poster presentations, UbiComp / ISWC 2020 is soliciting submissions for Posters Program that feature early research work and preliminary results. The Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for feedback on your early research results and give your ongoing projects early visibility among the academic and industrial audience.

Posters can cover preliminary or exploratory work within the field of ubiquitous and pervasive computing, report about smaller projects or results that are still maturing towards a full paper submission, or present any other research that would encourage discussion. All accepted submissions will be included in UbiComp / ISWC 2020 Adjunct Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. These are not considered to be archival publications; presentation in this venue will not affect the ability for researchers to subsequently publish this work in an archival forum as a conference / journal paper.

All posters will be considered for the best poster award. The voting for the best poster award will be conducted at the conference and announced at the end of the conference.

What to Submit

Extended abstracts describing the research ideas or results are solicited. They should discuss the novelty and distinguishing ideas or approaches that it brings to the Ubiquitous Computing / ISWC community. The abstract should be self-explanatory, i.e., it must be understandable even without seeing the poster.

Each extended abstract can be up to 4 pages (including all figures and references). Please use the template detailed in the template information.

The review process will be single blind. Submissions must NOT be anonymized! Please make sure that your submitted abstract complies with all the formatting guidelines and is ready for publication if it is accepted; there will be no time to make major revisions.


Authors are also strongly encouraged to submit a supporting video of up to four minutes and 100 MB. Videos are viewed only as supporting material. These videos will help promote easier understanding of your research. UbiComp 2020 is planning to utilize video of accepted posters before and during the conference as promotional material. Videos uploaded for camera-ready submission will be included in the conference proceedings as supplemental material.

NOTE: The initial video can be of informal quality (it just needs to show the concept) as it will only be used for the selection process. Only the final video submitted with the camera-ready version of your accepted demo will be published on the ACM Digital Library.

Extended Abstract and Poster for Accepted Authors

If your submitted poster is accepted, we require that you submit a camera-ready version of your extended abstract by the camera-ready deadline. You will also have to prepare a poster to showcase at the conference (more details will be communicated upon acceptance of your poster submission).

This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the UbiComp / ISWC 2020 conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
