Student Forum at ASP-DAC 2011 Call for Posters

Call for Posters

The Student Forum at ASP-DAC 2011 is a poster session for graduate students to present their research work. This is a great opportunity for students to get feedback and have discussion with people from academia and industry. Travel grants will be provided for some of the students attending the forum and awards will be given to outstanding presentations. Please check the website for updates.

Graduate students are eligible for the Student Forum.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline Extended October 29, 2010, October 22, 2010
Notification Date November 26, 2010
Forum Date January 27, 2011

Submission Requirements:

  1. Abstract of the poster presentation including name, advisor, institution, contact information, estimated graduation date, track number, figures, tables and bibliography (if applicable). The abstract must be at most two pages (hard limit).
  2. A list of all papers related to the poster presentation authored or co-authored by the student, including posters in Ph.D. Forum at DAC or DATE and Student Forum at ASP-DAC.
  3. A published supporting paper authored or co-authored by the student and related to the poster presentation.
Please send the above, to merge them into one pdf file if possible, to the following address: student-forum2011 [at] ( [at] indicates @).

Please Note:

  • Abstracts of completed research as well as research in early stages can be submitted.
  • Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the poster selection committee. The following points will be mainly taken into account in the review process in addition to the normal paper selection criteria:
    1. Achievements and methodologies for a completed (or almost completed) research.
    2. Directions and potentials for research in the early stages.
  • The poster selection committee gives the priority to the abstracts that meet the following criteria:
    1. Achievements and methodologies are supported by experiments.
    2. Directions and potentials are supported by feasibility analysis.
    3. It has not been presented at the Ph.D. Forum at DAC or DATE or the Student Forum at ASP-DAC.
  • The abstract must be in .pdf format. The font should not be smaller than 10 points. Please make sure all pages print well.
  • The abstract must be well organized and should not have any spelling error.
  • The bibliography and the list of published papers must be in IEEE style
  • (See Author Digital Tool Box).
