Poster Sessions

Poster Session

Track Coordinator: Maria Blas (Instituto de Desarrollo y Diseño Ingar (CONICET-UTN))

The Poster Session offers a timely venue to present and discuss new modeling and simulation research through a forum encouraging graphical presentation, demonstration, and active engagement among Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) participants. 

We are seeking outstanding extended abstracts (2 pages) submissions to be presented in a poster format at the conference. Competitive contributions will present interesting recent results, novel ideas or works-in-progress that are not quite ready for a regular full-length paper. Contributions from Ph.D. students are particularly welcome. Submitted manuscripts should follow the standard template for WSC submission, and should not exceed the 2 pages limit. Extended abstract submissions are encouraged in all areas of modeling and simulation covered by WSC.

Extended abstracts are used for designing the tracks and are included in the proceedings distributed to conference attendees, but they are not included in the archival version of the proceedings in IEEE and ACM repositories.

Poster Preparation Guidelines

Please bring a standard A0 size poster (841 x 1189 mm or 33.1 x 46.8 mm), or sheets which can be assembled to be that size or smaller. We will be displaying four posters per poster board (2 per side). Your poster should cover the main points of your work and be as self-explanatory as possible. The posters will be available in the exhibition hall for the duration of the conference, in order to allow the presenters to discuss their work.

Poster Madness Slide Preparation Guidelines

Each presenter will have a maximum of 2 minutes and up to 4 slides (including a title slide) to present their work. A reference template is provided. Please keep the slides format and the title slide, the other three slides are only a guideline for the content.
