Presentation of posters will be virtually co-located with UIST2020.



The presentation of a poster has been a key for engaging provocative discussions at CSCW. 

Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present their work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters are an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than full papers.

Before Covid-19 pandemic, the poster session was an opportunity for interested individuals to have focused discussions based on a physical poster. This year, we will organize the poster sessions as virtual exhibitions. While final details will emerge over time, the organizers will try to create opportunities for both synchronous and asynchronous interactions online. 


Poster submissions should include an extended abstract no longer than 4 pages (excluding references), including all figures, in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract Format (Word / Latex). 

The extended abstracts for the accepted posters will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the Conference Extended Abstracts. Please submit the 4-page extended abstract in PDF format and name this file ContactAuthorsLastName.pdf. The extended abstract should include author names (not anonymous submission). Note that: (1) References do not count against the page-limit, and (2) We recommend that authors remove the CCS concepts, keywords, and citations from the first page.

Poster abstract submissions must be uploaded online at the Precision Conference System (select CSCW 2020 Posters from the “Track” drop down menu) to be considered. Please note that CSCW 2020 is using a new version of Precision Conference System – PCS 2.0, which is still in development, and you are encouraged to report problems or to make interface suggestions to, and you will need to create a new login/password for this system.. All attachments must be less than 5MB.

Poster Authoring Tips

Accepted Interactive Poster abstracts will be published in ACM Digital Library and distributed to conference attendees as part of the Conference Extended Abstracts. Here are some suggestions to make strong submissions to the Poster program. 

  • State the contribution and originality of your work clearly and explicitly: What is the problem? How does your approach help? Why is it better than other available approaches?

  • Interactive posters abstracts may be chosen based on either the significance of the problem or the originality of your approach.

  • Focus on the contribution of your work rather than the background, including just enough background to make clear how your work differs from significant prior research.

Virtual Considerations for Accessibility: We encourage poster authors to review the ACM’s many references for organizing accessible conferences (e.g., SIGACCESS’s Accessible Conference Guide ). The CSCW 2020 Accessibility Co-Chairs (Kate Ringland and Christine Wolf) are working closely with this year’s Poster Co-Chairs in welcoming questions, feedback, or guidance related to making posters accessible. If questions related to accessibility arise, please direct any them to
