Poster Submission Information

As in previous years, SOSP 20 will host an interactive poster session. Poster submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract describing the poster. In addition to selecting posters to be presented in the Poster Session, four posters will be selected to make a more formal ten-minute presentation in a plenary session of the symposium. Student developed posters are eligible for the SOSP Student Research Competition.

To submit a poster, please:

  • Write a 1-page extended abstract of the research to be described by the poster,
  • Place the abstract on the web as either a postscript or PDF document, and
  • Mail the URL for the document's location to the Poster Session Chair, TBD.
The deadline for poster submission (registering a URL for a poster's extended abstract) is TBD.

If you are do not have access to a web server on which to post your abstract, you may email your abstract as an attachment directly to the poster session chair.

Posters describing student research are eligbile for the SOSP Student Research Competition. Such posters should be identified in the registration email to the poster session chair.

Note: Students who are submitting posters as part of the process of applying for a travel scholarship, are required to have a draft of their abstract completed by the scholarship application deadline (TBD). (Note further that while a poster submission is encouraged as part of the scholarship process, it is not required.) Students who submit a poster to the poster competition and apply to the scholarship program are free to revise the poster's abstract up until the poster submission deadline.
