October 22, 2001
The SOSP 2001 Poster Session will be held from
3:15PM to 5:30PM on Monday, October 22.
Submissions for the poster session are welcome and due by September
21 (extended from September 17).
A poster is a portrait-format sheet of paper,
mounted on foam-core backing, 3' × 4' in size. Usually it is broken
down into several frames that correspond to the slides in a
presentation. A presenter stands by the poster and describes the
work to people as they view the material.
A poster is ideal for presentation of ongoing work
in a manner that enables interaction and discussion. You might
consider providing an overview of some of your recent work, or
describing one aspect of your work in more detail. Posters are a
great way to get feedback from the community on incomplete work.
Poster topics will be chosen that are of interest to
the attendees; suitable topics include those appropriate for the
SOSP symposium. The primary criterion for acceptance is the ability
to generate a lively discussion. Plan an amount of material for the poster
that takes about 5 minutes to talk through.
To obtain a slot in the poster session, please do
the following by September 17. Submissions not conforming to
these guidelines may be ignored.
Develop a poster in sketch/outline form. The
ideal submission includes a thumbnail version of your poster,
occupying a single page, together with the text you would give
to somebody else so they could represent you at the poster
session (500 words max).
Put the submission into a single Adobe PDF
file containing at most three 8.5" × 11"
Construct a single piece of email as follows:
The email is to be sent to the session chair,
Andrew Myers (email@example.com)
The subject line of the email
reads "SOSP Poster Session submission"
The main body of the email (not
an attachment!) is a cover letter, including the following:
contact information: phone number,
email, and address;
names and affiliations of authors, as
you would like them listed in a program;
the title of the poster;
whether you require a table, chair, and
power for your laptop? (yes/no);
whether you are submitting a
talk on the same topic? (yes/no);
anything else that it will be vital for
us to know.
A single MIME-encoded attachment
contains the Adobe PDF file you constructed above.
You will be notified by email about whether your
poster has been accepted by September 21, 2001. If your poster is
accepted, your submitted PDF file will be also included in the
