Call for Posters

The VL/HCC 2020 Poster Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of visual languages and human centric computing. The poster track will provide an excellent environment for discussions that may generate new ideas and solutions.

Goals and Topics of Interest

Posters can help accomplish many goals, such as:

  • Stimulating discussions of recent advances, experiences, and challenges, as well as cutting-edge or potentially disruptive ideas.
  • Demonstrating to industry sponsors that a specific line of research has practical applications.
  • Building community interest in a novel way of approaching a research topic.
  • Helping graduate student presenters to meet faculty from other universities.
  • Starting conversations that could lead to new collaborations.

A broad range of topics are appropriate for Posters. The following non-exhaustive list illustrates the possibilities:

  • Reflections on the past, descriptions of current initiatives, or visions of the future.
  • Results presented in the main VL/HCC conference.
  • Current research work in progress.
  • Results already presented at another conference or published in a journal.
  • Efforts aimed at integrating research into education.
  • Efforts aimed at commercializing research.


Submissions consist of an extended abstract of no more than two (2) pages, including all text, figures, references, and appendices. The paper (extended abstract) should follow IEEE Conference Proceedings format standards. The paper title must start with the text “Poster:” and contain the following:

  • Abstract
  • Description of the technical content of the showpiece (e.g., research results, efforts to integrate research with education, existing products)
  • Relevance and novelty - Why is this content of interest to the VL/HCC community?
  • References are not required but may be included if doing so helps to communicate the topic, content, claims, novelty, or relevance.

The extended abstract should contain author names and affiliations, and must be submitted electronically to the Poster Track submission site at EasyChair site. The extended abstracts of accepted submissions will be published in the VL/HCC 2020 Companion proceedings, and will be made available in the IEEE Digital Library, so they should follow IEEE Conference Proceedings format standards.


You do not need to include a finished poster in your initial submission. On acceptance, you should prepare your poster in an A0 portrait format (841mm x 1189mm) for presentation at the conference.
