Poster Sessions

Track Coordinators: Maria Blas (Ingar CONICET-UTN) & Jie Xu (George Mason University)

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. All Posters will be eligible for the Best Poster Award.

In addition to their posters (physical or virtual), all poster participants will present during the virtual Poster Madness event and be eligible for the Best Poster award based on their presentations there. The Poster Madness session allows authors to summarize the main contribution of their work in a 2 minute presentation. 

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 smaller. The poster orientation should be done vertically/portrait. We will be displaying 2 posters per poster board (1 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.

Details on where virtual posters can be uploaded for the conference platform will be provided.

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.

Please submit slides in PowerPoint format (.pptx) using the template provided.
