SUBMISSION

Poster abstract submissions will be handled electronically. Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of an abstract descripting the work to be presented. Abstracts must not exceed 4 pages double column (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. Poster abstracts must be submitted by email to mobiq08-posters@cs.rutgers.edu. In the final version of the abstract, you should also include a URL that will provide additional information about your work to the attendees.

The abstract should identify the key contribution of the work being presented in the poster. In addition, it should describe the particular problem being addressed, what makes this problem interesting or important, what your approach is to the problem, and what aspects remain in progress or what questions remain open. Posters abstract submissions should be new and exciting work, and should not be abreviations of published papers.

PRESENTATION AND DISTRIBUTION

All submitted papers will be reviewed by the international poster review committee. Accepted poster abstracts will be distributed to all conference attendees in a companion to the main conference proceedings. There will be a scheduled reception for attendees to see the posters and demos and interact with the authors. Also, there will be a “One-minute madness” session in which poster authors can tell attendees about their work in 60 seconds or less on the day of the reception. Posters will also be available for viewing during the rest of the conference. We define a poster to be an area ranging from 3x2 feet to 3x4 feet on which you present your research. This could be a single page, or could be divided into about 9 to 18 pages, each 8.5x11 inches (letter size). You can arrange the space and orient the poster either horizontally or vertically. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about your work.

We will provide equipment for mounting the posters, but you will have to print (and, if you wish to, laminate or mount on a foam board) the poster and bring it to the conference site. We will ask you for your specific needs as the conference date approaches.
