Student Poster Session
SIGMOD/PODS, in association with FCRC, sponsor a session aimed at showcasing the
“work-in-progress” of students attending the conference. The goal of the poster
session is to present students' current research and provide an opportunity for
informal discussion of the work with the students. Topics of interest are the
same as research topics in SIGMOD/PODS 03. The poster seesion is being jointly
held with FCRC'03 on
June 9 (Monday) evening and June 11 (Wednesday) evening from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.
Precise time and place of the activity will be announced later.
The author(s) of the poster have to be students (but you may want to acknowledge
your advisor). Poster proposal should be e-mailed to
Papakonstantinou by May 7, 2003. Authors will be notified by
May 9, 2003 at the latest but we will also be accepting posters without
waiting for all submissions, since we do not expect a space issue. Hence the
number of accepted posters will only depend on the quality of the submissions.
Note that there will be no extensions. At the conference, posters must be
presented by a student. Only posters of unpublished work (and work that
will not be presented in any of the FCRC'03 venues) will be considered.
Why should you submit a poster?
This is a great chance for students to obtain interesting and valuable feedback
on on-going research from a knowledgeable crowd at the FCRC'03.
What is a poster?
A poster is a 30" x 40" rectangular board on which you can affix
visually appealing material that describes your research. How you use this is
up to you: you may choose to print out several 8.5"x11" or A4 sheets
of paper (e.g., paper copies of overheads) and "tile" the poster
board with these pages. Or, you may choose to print a single large sheet of
paper describing the work and attach that to the poster board. You may bring
your own poster boards if you like. Several document companies like Kinko's
produce professional-looking posters from material produced on software like
Powerpoint; you may want to use such a facility. You should prepare the best
material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your
research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about
