OOPSLA 2000, Conference On Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages and Applications

Chair: Peter F. Sweeney, posters@ooplsa.acm.org
Submissions due date: July 24, 2000.
Notification of acceptance or rejection: August 11, 2000
Printed camera-ready two page abstract due date: August 25, 2000


Posters are an excellent forum for authors to present their work in an informal and interactive session, or to present work that may be too preliminary for a full paper.

Posters cover the same interest areas as the Technical Papers and Practitioner's Reports, are presented during an interactive Poster session that will occur during the Welcome Reception on Monday evening October 16 from 5:30-7:30, and then are on display throughout the conference in the Exhibit Hall.

Successful Posters are carefully designed to convey technical details and have strong visual impact that attract the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays, either during the interactive Poster session or when relaxing in-between other sessions. The interactive poster session is held early in the conference, to promote continued discussion among interested parties. Some Poster authors post an informal schedule along with their poster, listing times when they plan to be available for discussion later on during the conference. Others leave sign-up sheets for interested viewers to obtain further information. The goal is to develop a poster that encourages small groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact.

Poster authors are required to attend the scheduled interactive Poster session, staying with their poster so that they can discuss their work with conference attendees.

Posters are advertised in the Final Program and will appear in the OOPSLA 2000 Conference Companion as two-page extended abstracts. The Conference Companion will be distributed at OOPSLA 2000, so attendees will be able to learn more about individual Posters before or after visiting the exhibit.

Submission Process

  • A Poster proposal consists of an extended abstract and the poster itself or a preliminary graphic layout of the poster.
  • All Poster proposals are to be submitted using the OOPSLA 2000 online submission system. Paper and fax submissions will not be accepted. The extended abstract will be entered directly online. The poster itself or the preliminary graphic layout must be submitted as a PDF or PostScript file.
  • The preliminary graphic layout should consist of 1 to 3 pages that sketch the layout for an 8 feet (wide) by 4 feet (high) bulletin board. Please use 10 point or larger font in the layout so that it is readable.
  • Go to your OOPSLA 2000 Personal Page. If you do not have a personal page yet, or if you have forgotten the URL, go to the "My OOPSLA2000" page (you can also get there from the OOPSLA home page).
  • From your OOPSLA 2000 Personal Page, follow the "Submit Poster" link.
  • Complete the Poster Form and hit "submit". You will be transferred to your own private URL from which you can check on the status of your Poster submission at any time.
  • You will receive confirmation by e-mail that your proposal has been received and is complete.
  • Proposals may be modified online up until the 24 July deadline.

To be included in the final program and in the Conference Companion, poster proposals must be submitted no later than 24 July 2000, but earlier is better.

Acceptance and rejection notifications will be e-mailed by 11 August 2000.

After poster acceptance, a printed version of the camera-ready, two page abstract, that will be printed in the Conference Companion, must be submitted no later than 25 August 2000.

For additional information, clarification, or questions please contact the Posters Chair, Peter Sweeney, at posters@oopsla.acm.com
