The 2009 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2009)

In conjunction with The International Wireless Communications
and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2009)

June 21-24, 2009
Leipzig, Germany


Submission Deadline: February 28, 2009


Poster papers are solicited and should be submitted using the conference software system on the HPCS 2009 web site.  Poster submissions are due February 28, 2009.  Please specify clearly in the Notes section of the submission form that you wish your submission to be considered strictly as poster paper.  Otherwise, your submission will be treated as regular paper submission and will be reviewed accordingly.  Please note that the Program Committee may decide that a regular paper will be accepted as a poster paper rather than regular.

Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees during the poster session.  Accepted posters will be displayed on large boards prepared by the presenters.  Poster paper submissions are at least 3 pages in length and up to 7 pages, without additional fees charged.  Beyond 7 pages, a per page fee will be imposed (see Registration for further information).  They are reviewed through the same procedure that papers are reviewed.  We encourage posters on new work that is still in progress, or small but highly focused results.  The main criteria are contribution novelty and usefulness to the HPCS community.  Posters must be in English.  Formatting instructions for the paper will follow those of regular papers.   Formatting instructions for the poster itself that will be used to present the work will be posted on this web site later.  HPCS will provide award to the Best Poster Paper.

If you have any questions or concerns about posters, please contact the Posters Co-Chairs.


Required Elements
A banner title and below it the list of the authors with affiliations. HPCS 2009 info should be written at the bottom.

Formatting Instructions
The poster size should be 2 X 3 ft to a maximum of 3 X 4 ft.

Tape, thumbtacks and other supplies may be needed at the site to mount the poster.

Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Use graphs, charts and illustrations as much as possible. Minimize use of text and tables. Your poster should be easily read from a distance of 4 ft (122 cm). Color will enhance poster readability and attractiveness.

Suggested Fonts and Sizes: Times New Roman

Title: 90 – 95 pt.
Authors/affiliations: 85 – 90 pt.
Headings: 60 pt.
Text: 28 – 36 pt.
References: 20 – 24 pt.

Background color should be white or a neutral color that is easy on the eyes.

Print a miniature version of your poster on 8.5''x11'' paper. Choose ‘Fit to size’ 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 – 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.
