Poster Session Information

Poster Session

Registration for the Poster Session can be done on Sunday or Monday at the registration table. The poster session will feature two categories of posters:

  1. Demonstrations of meshes from which the Meshing Maestro award is selected. The mesh may be based on the model used in the Meshing Contest or a model of your own choice.

  2. Technical exhibits of current research in mesh and grid generation.

From the first category, the annual Meshing Maestro is selected by attendees of the poster session.  The winner has the opportunity to have their design used for next year's conference tee shirt.  The primary criterion used by the peer review for the Meshing Maestro award is based on the aesthetic appeal of the mesh.  Therefore, in this category, we solicit posters that emphasize striking visuals with few technical details.

The second category is an ideal forum for authors who would prefer not to submit a formal technical paper, but would like to illustrate state-of-the-art techniques and procedures in which they are currently involved.  Session speakers are also invited to display practical results of their work at the poster session.  The conference organizing committee will select winners from this category for the best technical and best student posters taking into consideration voting ballots received from conference attendees.  

To participate in the poster session, you must be attending the conference.  

Format:

  1. The display of each poster must fit on one 40" x 30" foam poster board. Clips will be available for participants to clip their poster to the foam board.

  2. The use of electronic devises as part of the display are allowed ONLY to enhance your poster or give a demo; however, you must have a hardcopy poster to participate in the contest.

Categories & Awards:

  1. Awards will be given to the Best Technical and Best Student Posters.

  2. The Best Technical and Best Student Posters will be judged by the organizing committee (see criteria below).

  3. Awards will be announced at the banquet on October 14, 2014.

  4. Participants can submit multiple entries and be eligible for multiple awards.

  5. A poster from the session will be selected as the design used on the tee shirt for the next IMR.


Best Technical and Student Poster Criteria:

  1. Technical issue being addressed.

  2. Creativity of proposed solution to issue.

  3. Impact of solution on technical community.

  4. Quality of technical presentation.
