Call for Posters

We invite the submission of proposals for technical poster presentations at SMC2014.

Poster submissions may describe recently completed work, highly relevant results of work in progress, or successful systems and applications, in all areas of systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics. Because posters are not formal publications, work submitted as a poster is eligible for future publication in other venues.

Presenting a poster is a great way to get feedback on work that has not yet been published. Poster presentations will be an integral part of the conference, with a session for interactive discussion between presenters and attendees, plus a fast-forward presentation track where authors can orally present a brief summary of their work to all conference attendees. In order to maintain interactive and exciting poster presentations, at least one presenter per accepted poster is required to attend the conference.

Poster submissions must be in English. The submission must include a 2-page abstract, plus a draft of the final poster. Please be aware that the poster draft is mandatory. Please prepare your poster in either portrait or landscape format with the following dimensions: 32" x 40" (82cm x 102cm).

All submitted materials must be in PDF format with embedded fonts. Two-page abstracts will be included in the Conference Proceedings and therefore must be formatted according to IEEE guidelines. Poster abstracts and posters will be submitted through the SMC2014 website.

IEEE format guidelines and URL for submission will be available on the Paper Submission portion of the SMC2014 website.
