Submission Guidelines

Types of submissions

The MODELS conference distinguishes two types of poster submissions: a) stand-alone poster submissions, and b) paper-accompanying poster submissions.

A) Stand-Alone Poster Submissions

Stand-alone poster submissions present novel contributions in the field of model-based software and systems engineering which have not been accepted at the MODELS 2024 technical or industrial tracks, or any of the MODELS 2024 satellite events/workshops. Note that a contribution which has been rejected from these tracks/satellite events/workshops is welcome to be presented as a poster.

These submissions consist of two parts:

  1. An extended abstract of the presented contribution including the following contents:
    • Title
    • Author(s) and affiliation(s)
    • Motivation and goals
    • Background information if needed to understand the contribution
    • Adequate detail on the contribution
    • Related work
    • Links to additional information (e.g., project website, source code repository, demo material, etc.)
    • The extended abstract must obey the ACM formatting instructions and is restricted to two pages, including references.
  2. A draft of the poster detailing the contribution.

Formatting instructions are available here for both LaTeX and Word users. LaTeX users must use the provided acmart.cls and ACM-Reference-Format.bst without modification, enable the conference format in the preamble of the document (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}), and use the ACM reference format for the bibliography (i.e., \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}).

Word users make sure you are using Times New Roman on the body of your text, author information, and section titles; and using Helvetica on the paper title.

Both the extended abstract and the poster have to be written in English and submitted in PDF format.

B) Poster Submissions for Papers Accepted at MODELS and Co-located Events

These poster submissions are directly related to papers accepted at the MODELS 2024 technical or industrial tracks, or any MODELS 2024 satellite events/workshops. Note that contributions accepted at the MODELS tools and demo track cannot be submitted to the posters track.

The aim of such posters is to further disseminate the contribution, to receive additional feedback, and communicate further about the presented work in more informal settings as Q/A time is limited during the contribution’s main presentation time. This category of poster submission consists of:

  1. A draft of the poster to be presented (in PDF).
  2. The accepted paper (in PDF).
  3. The track/event name the paper was accepted to.

An extended abstract is not required.

Poster Format and Printing

The final posters have to be in A1 (594mm x 841mm) or A0 (841mm x 1189mm) portrait format. The article Research posters 101 by Lorrie Faith Cranor published in ACM Crossroads provides excellent tips on preparing successful posters.

We are looking at ways to have the posters printed in locally, to avoid transportation costs and related hassle that authors may face. Authors of accepted posters will be provided with further instructions.

Submission Guidelines

All poster submissions have to be submitted electronically in the PDF format at the MODELS 2024 Poster track submission page.

For stand-alone poster submissions, the extended abstract and the draft poster have to be submitted in separate PDF files. Also, a short abstract summarizing the contributions of the poster and at least three keywords have to be provided with the submission.

For paper-accompanying poster submissions, the draft poster and the corresponding accepted paper have to be submitted. Also, please provide a short abstract including the name of the track/event where the accepted paper will be presented and at least three keywords.

By submitting to the MODELS Poster Track, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree to be bound by the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism. In particular, papers submitted to MODELS 2024 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for MODELS 2024.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.”

Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

Reviewing Process

The main evaluation criteria for stand-alone poster submissions are the quality of the proposed poster in terms of originality, relevance for the MODELS audience, technical soundness, and presentation quality. Each stand-alone poster submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the poster selection committee.

The main evaluation criterion for paper-accompanying poster submissions is the presentation quality.


  1. The extended abstracts of accepted stand-alone poster submissions will be published in a joint proceedings encompassing all MODELS 2024 Satellite Events in the ACM Digital Library. The actual posters will not be published.
  2. Accepted paper-accompanying poster submissions will not be published.

Poster Presentation

At least one of the authors of each accepted poster must attend the poster session to present and discuss their work with attendees. Failure to do so may result in the extended abstract to be removed from the ACM Digital Library.


The MODELS 2024 posters track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their most recent achievements, practical experiences, novel ideas, tools, and challenges related to model-based software and systems engineering. As the premier conference in this area, MODELS provides an excellent environment for discussing your recent results, communicating about your research, receiving constructive feedback, and making new contacts within the model-based software and systems engineering community.


Posters are expected to stimulate discussions of recent advances, practical experiences, new ideas, tools, and challenges in the field of model-based software and systems engineering. We also welcome posters presenting early work (e.g., starting Ph.D. work), visions for the future, current initiatives, and work on modeling education. The list of topics relevant to Posters is the same as for the main track at MODELS. Please refer to the call for papers on the main conference track.
