ECOOP 2009 will hold combined poster and demonstration sessions. The Poster/Demo Session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress, in an informal and interactive setting. Posters and demos are intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. Technical posters, reports on descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome, especially if they draw important conclusions from practical experience. Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative implementations and technologies.
Successful posters are carefully designed to convey technical details. They should also attract the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays. The goal is to develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. Posters will be peer-reviewed by the Poster Committee.
Authors must submit a two-page paper with a short abstract for evaluation. The abstract must clearly demonstrate relevance to ECOOP. Submissions will be evaluated for acceptability by the reviewers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the main conference topics, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. If a poster will be accompanied by a live software demonstration, authors are requested to submit an additional one-page explanation of the demo, which will not be included in the poster/demo notes. Submit the demo explanation as a one-page appendix of your paper.
Posters and demos are not intended as advertisements for software packages.
Authors submitting a full paper to ECOOP may also submit the same work for consideration in the Demo/Poster track, either before or after result notification for the full paper. For example, a demo can be provided for an accepted paper, or a poster can be used to present work that was insufficiently mature for the research track.
At least one of the Poster/Demo authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and attend the Poster/Demo Session to present the work. The abstracts for all accepted posters and demos will be given to all conference attendees and published on the conference web site. They will not be included in the formal proceedings.
