Information for Poster Presenters

Following the transformation of the HCII 2021 conference into a virtual event, the nature of poster presentations has also changed.

Posters will be accessible to all registered conference participants through the Conference Management System (CMS) for the entire six-day period of the conference, from Saturday 24 July until Thursday 29 July.

Conference participants will be able to pose their questions to poster presenters through email (asynchronous communication).

Through this link presenters can view the provided template for a poster presentation. This is optimized for best view with a browser in full screen in a monitor with resolution of Full-HD (1920x1080) or better.

How to prepare the poster image (required)
The image file for a poster presentation should have a size of 900x900 pixels in JPG or PNG format, optimized for screen presentation over the web (not in high resolution print quality). It is recommended that the content of the poster image should include a concise overview of the work, with clear illustrations and attractive visual design.

How to prepare the large poster version (optional)
Poster presenters have the option to provide an additional large version of the poster presentation that can accommodate more information and details. This can be either an image, in JPG or PNG format, or a PDF file; there are no limitations about the view size, the resolution or the print quality. It will be available for download by participants who would like to get a more detailed view of your work. It is also recommended that the content of the large poster version should include a concise overview of the work with clear illustrations and attractive visual design.

How to prepare the presentation video (optional)
Poster presenters can create their video by recording a computer-based presentation (typically a PPTX) or by capturing their computer screen while demonstrating their work.
Please prepare all material and narrations in English, keeping in mind that the video presentation will be viewed by an international audience. During the recording please speak clearly and slower than usual.
We strongly recommend that such a video is self-explanatory, so that conference participants will not need to read the ‘extended poster abstract’ (short research paper published in the Springer CCIS proceedings) in order to understand the work presented.

When the video presentation is ready, presenters are advised to upload it to YouTube using this guide and make sure that under the Privacy Settings they select “Unlisted”. Finally, please copy and save the 'share link'.

How to submit the presentation
Through the presenter’s CMS account, under Submitted Proposals, the presenter should select the poster submission and press the button ‘UPLOAD POSTER IMAGE/VIDEO’ in order to upload: a) the Poster image file, b) the optional large poster file and c) the optional link to the video presentation (share link from YouTube). After submission, presenters have the option to preview their poster presentation (images and video). Presenters can repeat the submission process as many times as they wish, until Wednesday, 21 July 12:00 noon Eastern Daylight Time - EDT (Washington DC).
Thereafter, the process will be frozen for submitted presentations and will be available only for first-time submissions (able to submit only once).
At the time of initial submission of the presentation, a ‘display number’ will be assigned to each poster.

Please note that if the presentation file of a poster is not provided, then the poster will not be listed in the ‘Poster presentations list’, but in a separate list including its title, the author(s) and a link to the Springer CCIS proceedings (the published ‘extended poster abstract’, if available).
