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.  



Call for Posters

Technical posters are sought for the 24th International Meshing Roundtable (24th IMR), October 11-14, 2015, Austin, TX.

Technical posters are an ideal showcase for authors to present state-of-the-art techniques and procedures, innovative contributions, high-impact and preliminary results, on-going research projects, and practical applications.

Topics related to technologies and applications of mesh generation in various areas are all appropriate. Potential topics include but not limited to: meshing algorithms, mesh modeling, geometry processing, visualization, mesh adaptation for numerical simulations.

Authors who have submitted a technical paper are encouraged to submit a technical poster as well.

Technical posters will be reviewed by the 24th IMR committee members. Accepted posters will be displayed throughout the conference days for presenters to discuss their work with attendees. Organized sessions during the conference for the presenters to introduce their posters will be included in the conference schedule. They will be also available through the 24th IMR's website.

Quality Note

Technical posters should contain significant technical details, not just pictures, for the described methods and results. It is strongly encouraged that the presenters of the posters use their laptop or other media to show live demos of the models shown in the posters. A list of guidelines for preparing technical posters is provided below.

All technical posters will be evaluated and voted by the attendees. The conference steering committee will select a winner and the "Best Poster Award" will be given to the selected author.

Submission Details

Submitted posters should be in the form of a two-page paper which must be formatted according to the IMR Author's guidelines and may be accompanied by a preliminary version of the actual poster provided at the author's discretion.

Submissions will be made electronically through the same process as for the full papers. For instructions, visit the Paper Submission page of the IMR website.

Authors will be notified in time for submission of a final version in two formats, a two-page paper and an A4 version of the final poster. Both formats will be included in the conference digital media and will be available on the 24th IMR website.

Final Posters must be provided in a landscape A0 format.

Deadline Information

The submission deadline for posters is 23:59 UTC/GMT, on Friday, August 7th, 2015.

Notification to authors will be sent on Friday, August 14th, 2015.

Poster Guidelines

In order to help the interaction with IMR attendees, we suggest the following guidelines:

  1. The originality of the approach must be emphasized as best as possible. It means to clearly explain the main contributions of the approach comparing to relative state-of-the art works (including bibliography references).
  2. Main features of the proposed solution must be given. It can be main steps of an algorithm, time and space complexities, underlying mathematical background, new scheme formulation, known limitations, etc…
  3. Many pictures must illustrate the proposed solution;
  4. Examples and benchmark results are encouraged;
  5. Final Posters have to be provided in a landscape A0 format;
  6. Minimal font policy is 14pt;
  7. Name of authors, logos and addresses of institution must be given at the top of the poster;
  8. Take attention to the quality of the pictures.

For any question concerning poster submissions please contact the posters chair.
