Mon 20 - Fri 24 October 2014 Portland, Oregon, United States

The SPLASH Poster track provides an excellent forum for authors to present their recent or ongoing projects in an interactive setting, and receive feedback from the community. We invite submissions covering any aspect of programming, systems, languages and applications. The goal of the poster session is to encourage and facilitate small groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. It is held early in the conference, to promote continued discussion among interested parties.

Call for Posters

Posters can be independent presentations or associated with one of the other parts of SPLASH.

Posters Associated with SPLASH Conferences/Workshops

Authors of all accepted papers to all constituent conferences and workshops of SPLASH are invited to sign up and present a poster summarizing their work. We hope that this will provide authors an opportunity to increase the visibility of their papers and engage in more one-on-one discussions.

Given that the papers have already been thoroughly reviewed before acceptance, such posters will not be reviewed by the Posters Committee and there will be no separate extended abstract in the SPLASH Companion proceedings. But, we still require authors to sign up, to order enough poster boards and other supplies.

To participate, please sign up before October 1st at the following EasyChair page.

Enter author information, title and abstract of the accepted paper and enter the name of the conference to which the paper was accepted in the keywords field.

Independent Posters – Submissions Closed

The rest of this CFP refers to independent poster submissions.


We invite submissions that:

  • present early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal
  • identify new research problems, preferably with empirical evidence
  • showcase open-source tools and technologies developed by the author(s)
  • describe student research projects, especially Masters/PhD dissertation proposals. We encourage students to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition and PhD students to participate in the Doctoral Symposium.


Posters shall be evaluated both on their contributions and on how effectively they communicate those contributions. All poster proposals should include the following two files in PDF format:

  • A 2-page extended abstract in the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings format with 10pt font. (pdf format) suitable for inclusion in the SPLASH 2014 conference companion proceedings.
  • The poster itself in pdf format. Posters should be A0-sized or smaller (portrait or landscape).

Poster authors are required to attend the scheduled interactive poster session, staying with their poster so that they can discuss their work with conference attendees. Poster authors may post an informal schedule along with their poster, listing times when they plan to be available for discussion later on during the conference. Sign-up sheets allow interested viewers to obtain further information. All posters will have an associated message board, on which viewers can post comments, ideas, and questions and on which poster authors will be able to post responses.

Submission Site and Deadline

Poster proposals can be submitted at the following Easychair page.

On the submission form, please submit the 2-page extended abstract as the “Paper”, and the actual poster as an “Attachment”. The maximum size of each PDF file can be 20MB.

The extended submission deadline for independent posters is 23:59 pm GMT on July 18, 2014. [Closed]

Doctoral Symposium and Student Research Competition Participants

An acceptance into either the ACM Student Research Competition or the Doctoral Symposium automatically guarantees a slot in the poster session. Students who want to participate in the poster session in case their submissions to the above two events are rejected are requested to re-submit their extended abstract and poster before 23:59 pm GMT on July 10, 2014 following the instructions above and also mention “ACM Student Research Competition Submission” or “Doctoral Symposium Submission” in the “Keywords” field of the submission form.
