Poster presentation and submission

Guidelines for poster presentation

22nd IWLR will have both virtual and in person poster sessions.

All poster contributions will be available in the communication platform chosen for the virtual sessions, Slack. Conference participants will receive an invitation to join the Slack 22nd IWLR workspace of the poster sessions. Here authors and participants will be able to interact from the beginning of the conference. These interactions should be understood to be asynchronous rather than live, accommodating users from different time zones.

While we will have scheduled poster sessions in person, there will be no special times for their virtual version, as posters will be accessible online in Slack for the duration of the conference. Posters from authors attending in person will also be posted online, so that all works will be visible to everyone regardless of participation type.

All poster authors will have the opportunity to prepare a 2-minutes lightning talk video presenting their work. These videos will be linked to from the Slack channels of their respective posters. The format of the talk is free, with a maximum limit of five slides if prepared in presentation style. It is not mandatory to record a video, although we highly recommend it.

Guidelines for abstract submission

Abstracts of the poster contributions, with a maximum length of 300 words, must be written in English using the templates provided here (docx or odt format). Please do not introduce any format changes to ensure the uniformity of the submissions.
