Preliminary Call for Poster Papers and Posters

 (Paper Submission Deadline: February 12, 2010)


PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010) is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in collaborative environments, their modeling and simulation, design and use, and their impact.  The conference will include a session for poster presentations.  

CTS 2010 is soliciting poster papers and posters on all CTS related topics for the posters session.  The posters session is an effective and interactive forum for presenting works addressing preliminary results, innovative ideas, work in progress, late-breaking results, collaboration tools, platforms and products, and other works, possibly not suitable for a formal full paper.  Posters will be held in a special session where presenters will demonstrate their work directly to symposium attendees, and will remain in place during the remainder of the symposium.  


TOPICS INCLUDE  (but are not limited to) :  
All CTS related topics .

Please specify clearly in the Notes section of the submission form as well as on the submission that you wish your submission to be considered strictly as poster paper or poster .  This is very important.  Apart from that, please note that the Program Committee may decide that a regular paper will be accepted as a poster paper rather than a regular paper.  Authors would be informed in such a case.    

Poster paper submissions are at least 3 pages in length and up to 6 pages, without additional fees charged.  They are reviewed through the same procedure that regular papers are reviewed.  Poster paper submission should include a cover page with title, authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email addresses.  Please indicate clearly the corresponding author.  Include up to 6 keywords from the topics list and an abstract of no more than 450 words describing your work.  Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft manuscript (at least 3 pages in length and up to 6 pages in the posted IEEE format, single-spaced, double-column, including figures, tables, and references) using the conference web site submission link at http://cisedu.us/cis/cts/10/main/callForPapers.jsp .  Please make sure to indicate on the manuscript that the submission is for poster paper under names and affiliations.  CTS will provide award to the Best Poster Paper.

Print a miniature version of your poster on 8.5''x11'' paper.  Choose ıFit to sizeı under the print command, and choose letter-sized paper.  If your text is too small to read on the miniature version (from 12 inches), it will be too small to read on the final poster.  Same is true to pictures and figures ı the graphical elements of your poster should be sharp and clear on the miniature printout.  The miniature printout can also serve as a handout to provide during the poster session.
