Call for Posters

STOC 2011

June 6, 2011
San Jose, CA

This year, STOC 2011 (part of FCRC) is experimenting with a new Poster Session. The poster session will be held from 8:30pm to 10:30pm on Monday June 6, and should be thought of as an extended hallway-discussion with a visual aid. The poster session will be accompanied by refreshments.

In order to present a poster, authors must email the following information to by May 2, 2011, 3pm EDT:

Note that poster submissions are not refereed. However, the committee reserves the right to turn down submissions deemed out of scope. If the number of poster submissions exceeds capacity, priority will be given to registered STOC attendees and secondarily according to the date of submission. Poster slots will be confirmed by May 6, 2011. If any slots remain, submissions received after the deadline may be considered at the discretion of the committee.

Poster Preparation

Posters should be designed to fit within a space that is 42in wide and 48in high, and may consist of a single printed poster or separate pieces. Mounted posterboards, as well as pushpins and tape for attaching your poster to the posterboard, will be provided at the conference. Some (humorous but helpful) suggestions for poster preparation can be found at
