From: Efthimis N. Efthimiadis <>
Subject: SIGIR-95: Poster sessions

For those of you who may have missed the deadline for submission of
papers to the ACM/SIGIR Conference in Seattle - you still have time to
submit a poster. Details follow!


 18th International Conference on Research
 and Development in Information Retrieval

 The Sheraton, Seattle, WA, USA
 July 9 - July 13, 1995


SIGIR '95 will include poster presentations to enable researchers an
opportunity to present late-breaking results, significant work in
progress, or research that is best communicated in conversational mode.
Poster presenters will have the opportunity to exchange ideas one-on-one
with attendees and to discuss their work in detail with those most deeply
interested in the same topic.

Posters will be reviewed by appropriate subject specialists as well
as the Program Committee and will be selected on the basis of
their contribution to research-focused discussion. Posters will be
accepted a full month later than papers in order to provide an
opportunity for submitting very current work that need not be
written up in a full paper.

Abstracts of posters will appear in the conference proceedings. Authors
will be expected to be present at their posters to describe their work and
answer questions on Monday, July 10, from 5: pm to 10:00 pm.

Doctoral students are encouraged to consider poster submission as
a viable means for discussing ongoing dissertation research.

Submissions shall be made to the Posters Chair and shall consist of:

(a) Abstract shall be submitted in three copies.

(b) An extended abstract of approximately three to four pages.

(c) Abstract shall emphasize the research problem, the approach
or methodology being used, and why the work is important.

(d) A separate cover page with the title of the poster, the name and
affiliation of the author(s)/presenter(s), as well as complete contact
information to include postal address, email address, phone number and
fax number of the author(s).
