Guidelines for EDBT/ICDT Poster Sessions, Paper Presentation Sessions, and Demo Sessions


EDBT Full and Short Papers

During this year‘s EDBT, we will have two plenary poster sessions, where the authors of the EDBT research track (both full and short papers) will present their work at a poster stand. Posters offer researchers an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

For EDBT Short Research Papers the poster session is the only form of presentation at EDBT.

Full EDBT research papers in addition to the poster presentations will have a presentation slot of 17 minutes plus 5 minutes Q&A in one of the EBDT research sessions. In order to find the session, in which a particular paper will be presented, please refer to the detailed program on the EDBT website once published. Each EDBT session will have a session chair. As presenter, please contact your session chair in advance.

As author of an accepted paper of a EDBT Research (short or full), we therefore ask you to prepare a poster and present your work during one of the two poster sessions. The poster should be A0 size in vertical format (1189 mm in height x 841 mm in width). The font type should be easily legible and sized to be readable at a distance of several feet or 2 to 3 meters/yards. The poster should include the paper title, full name of the authors, with presenting author(s) indicated by underlining, affiliation of the authors, and contact information for the presenting author(s).
The poster should contain the key points of the paper, including the scientific goal, the problem being solved to reach that goal, the solution approach and methodology, the impact/performance of the work and related work. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative.

The printed booklet distributed at the conference will list the numbers of the panels assigned to each poster.

The poster sessions are planned for Wednesday, 17:45 to 19:15, and Thursday, 16:15 to 17:45. The posters of EDBT Research Sessions 1-5 will be presented on Wednesday, the posters of EDBT Research Sessions 6-9 as well as all EDBT Short Research Papers will be presented on Thursday.


EDBT Demonstrations

EDBT 2017 will include two demo sessions, planned on Wednesday, March 22. The former demo session will take place from 11:40 to 13:10, and the latter from 17:45 to 19:15. During each session all the demos will be presented, and thus authors have the chance to present their demos twice.

The conference organization will provide for each demo a stand with the following items:

  • a table and a chair;
  • a 220V power outlet;
  • a panel for a poster of A0 size in vertical format (for the preparation of the demo poster, see the guidelines illustrated above for the poster sessions);
  • wireless network connectivity.
The demo teams are responsible for bringing any needed equipment to the conference.

The printed booklet distributed at the conference will list the numbers of the stands assigned to each demostration.


ICDT Papers

ICDT papers will have a presentation slot of 25 minutes plus 5 minutes Q&A in one of the ICDT sessions. In order to find the session, in which a particular paper will be presented, please refer to the detailed program on the EDBT/ICDT website. Each ICDT session will have a session chair. As presenter, please contact your session chair in advance.

During this year‘s ICDT, all the papers will also be presented during a plenary poster session. The poster session is planned for Wednesday, March 22, from 17:45 to 19:15. Posters offer researchers an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

The printed booklet distributed at the conference will list the numbers of the panels assigned to each poster.

As author of an accepted paper, we therefore ask you to prepare a poster and present your work during the poster session. The poster should be A0 size in vertical format (1189 mm in height x 841 mm in width). The font type should be easily legible and sized to be readable at a distance of several feet or 2 to 3 meters/yards. The poster should include the paper title, full name of the authors, with presenting author(s) indicated by underlining, affiliation of the authors, and contact information for the presenting author(s).
We suggest that the poster contains the key points of the paper, including the scientific goal, the problem being solved to reach that goal, the solution approach and methodology, the impact/performance of the work (if applicable) and related work. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative.
