Student Poster Session
List of Accepted Posters
This year, the SIGCOMM 2001
conference will sponsor a one-hour poster session aimed at showcasing the
"work-in-progress" of students attending the conference. The goal
of the poster session is to present students' current work and provide
an opportunity for informal discussion of the work with the students at
the conference venue. Topics of interest are the same as in the SIGCOMM
Poster proposals should be
sent by email to Hari Balakrishnan by June
17, 2001. This is a final date, no extensions will be granted.
The primary author(s) of
the poster must be a student. Posters will be reviewed by some members
of the SIGCOMM Technical Program Committee and the authors of accepted
posters will be notified by July 6 2001. At the conference, posters
must be presented by a student. Authors of accepted papers must not
submit a poster of the work they present in the conference.
Why should you submit a poster?
This is a great chance for students
to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on on-going work from a knowledgeable
crowd at the conference. Furthermore, student authors of accepted
posters will be given some preference for the SIGCOMM 2001 student travel
What is a poster?
A poster is a 1meter x 1.25
meter rectangular board on which you can affix visually appealing material
that describes your research. How you use this is up to you: you
may choose to print out several 8.5"x11" or A4 sheets of paper (e.g., paper
copies of overheads) and "tile" the poster board with these pages.
Or, you may choose to print a single large sheet of paper describing the
work and attach that to the poster board. You may bring your own
poster boards if you like. Several document companies like Kinko's
produce professional-looking posters from material produced on software
like Powerpoint; you may want to use such a facility.
You should prepare the best
material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates
your research problem, techniques, and results.
What, when, and where to submit?
If you are a student and are
interested in this, then submit the following by June 17 2001 by
email to Hari Balakrishnan (firstname.lastname@example.org):
Send your submission in one
email message with the two parts. Please do not mail in a poster
An ASCII text file describing
the research to be presented in the poster, in 500 words or less. Include the title, authors,
and institutional affiliations.
A draft of the poster material
(either multiple "tiles" or a single sheet of paper), in PDF or PostScript
Include the title, authors, and institutional affiliations.
We will select between 10
and 20 of the most interesting and thought-provoking posters by July 6
2001 and notify all contact authors. More details will be sent at
