Poster Board: 1.5 meters high x .92 meters wide
Poster Size: 1.4 meters high x .8 meters wide or smaller


35-word Abstract The 35-word abstract should be a brief summary of the work. If the submission is accepted for presentation, this 35-word abstract will be included in the Conference Program Book.

2-page Summary (up to 2 pages maximum): the author must include all text, including the 35-word abstract, title, authors, equations, tables, photographs, drawings, figures, and references.

IMPORTANT! Please embed all fonts; use standard fonts when possible. Problems may occur if non-English font packages (for example, Japanese, Korean or Chinese fonts, etc.) are used in the body of your paper summary, as well as in all figures and tables. Characters in these fonts cannot be seen by reviewers. In the past, we have had particular trouble with MS-PGothic, MS -Gothic and MS-Mincho.


Category Selection: Please review the topics categories, and select the area that is appropriate for your work. In addition, you can request that your paper be considered for one of the symposia.

OCIS Codes: As part of the submission process, you will be asked to select two to three OCIS Codes from a broad list that best characterize your paper.

Copyright Agreement: The submission form incorporates an electronic copyright transfer agreement as part of your submission. No additional mailed documentation is required.

Presentation Preference: The presentation options are “oral or poster acceptable”, “poster only” and “oral only”. The committee has the final say on presentation types, though every effort is made to honor authors’ choices. Note: Postdeadline papers are strictly oral.

Adherence to the instructions for preparation of the abstract and summary is imperative. Failure to complete any of the preceding requirements may result in the rejection of a paper. NO CHANGES OR REVISIONS WILL BE ALLOWED AFTER THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE. Emailed or faxed submissions will not be accommodated.

A complete submission must be submitted via the online submission system in adherence with the style guide and by the published deadline. Do NOT email, fax or mail your paper!

Registration and submission for Technical Sessions is open to all members of the scientific and technical community. It is incumbent on the authors to obtain appropriate approval to present their work to this international forum.

Please make sure that your paper does not contain non-English font packages (for example, Japanese, Korean or Chinese fonts, etc.) in the body of your paper summary, as well as in all figures and tables. Characters in these fonts cannot be seen by reviewers. In the past, we have had particular trouble with MS-PGothic, MS-Gothic and MS-Mincho.
