Call for Notes and Posters


The Notes & Posters Track encourages submissions that focus on a contribution that is succinct or ongoing. Submissions in this category are intended to allow presenters to share their latest results or get feedback on projects which may not otherwise be appropriate for the Full Papers Track. Notes and posters are likely to have a more focused and concise research contribution to the field. For example, a submission on a novel system may not cover the entire system design but rather go into depth regarding a specific topic (e.g., how the system was evaluated with real users or how the formative work to create the system was conducted). Notes and posters are treated “one and the same”; in other words, all accepted submissions to this track will have the chance to present their work in poster form during the conference.

Submission Information

Notes and posters should submit a description of their work in PDF format using the ACM Primary Article Templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word. Authors should use the single-column format (the “acmconf” default template in LaTeX). There is no strict page limit, but typical submissions to this track are between 1000–3000 words excluding references; in the ACM single-column format, this typically results in 2–5 pages of text. Submissions that are clearly more appropriate for the Full Papers Track based on their length will not be accepted. All submissions must start with “Poster:” in the title to distinguish them from other submission categories.

All submissions must be fully anonymized. Submissions will go through a double-blind review process; therefore, authors should not reveal their names or affiliations on the title page, text, or document metadata. Any references to the authors’ own prior work should be in the third person. In addition, we aim to ensure that all of the COMPASS content is made as accessible as possible to any and all persons; please refer to our guide to producing accessible documents for suggestions.

Accepted submissions will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. To accommodate the publishing traditions of different fields, authors of accepted submissions can ask that only a one-page abstract appears in the archival proceedings along with a URL pointing to the full submission. Authors should guarantee that the link to the full submission will be reliable for at least two years. This option is available to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider preliminary results that have been published in the proceedings of a conference.
