CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
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. The presentation of a poster has been key for engaging provocative discussions at CSCW.
Submissions can include, but are not limited to late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full or short paper, contributions by collaborative (inter-)national research projects, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, early student research, and other research best presented in an interactive forum.
CSCW 2023 is a Hybrid-Onsite conference. For posters, this means that the primary venue will be a fully in-person session at the conference; however, a separate opportunity for remotely presented posters also will be offered. This may include the creation of videos, depending on the final format that is decided by the conference committee.
The primary focus of the Posters venue will be an in-person session at the conference where presenters can display a poster and discuss their work with other conference participants.
In addition, there will be a limited virtual component to provide access to the venue, increase exposure, and allow for remote participation. More details about how remote participation will work will be released closer to the time of the conference.
Note: For all accepted submissions, at least one author should register for the conference.
POSTER SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Poster abstract submissions should be between 4-6 pages, including all figures but excluding references, in one of the ACM Primary Article Templates (Note: we are no longer using an extended abstract format). This is the same template used for full papers.

- Microsoft Word Mac 2016
- LaTeX (Use sample-manuscript.tex for submissions)

Please submit the manuscript in PDF format, following the ACM Master Article Submission Templates (single column). The submission should include author names (not anonymous submission).
Poster abstract submissions must be uploaded online at the Precision Conference System (select CSCW 2023 Posters from the “Track” drop down menu) to be considered. All attachments must be less than 5MB. If you have questions or comments please contact the Posters Co-chairs at email@example.com

POSTER AUTHORING TIPS
Accepted Interactive Poster abstracts will be published in ACM Digital Library and distributed to conference attendees as part of the Conference Companion. 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? 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.
Note: Interactive posters abstracts may be chosen based on either the significance of the problem or the originality of your approach. Submissions will be reviewed by the Poster selection committee and/or external reviewers.
DESIGNING YOUR “POSTER”
Accepted Interactive Poster abstracts will be published in the ACM Digital Library and distributed to conference attendees as part of the Conference Extended Abstracts. Additionally, authors will be asked to prepare a 1-page poster and/or pre-recorded video for presentation at the conference, which should be designed to meet the following guidelines.
- Clearly and explicitly state the contribution and originality of your work: What is the problem? How does your approach address it? Why is it superior to other available approaches? Interactive poster abstracts may be selected based on either the significance of the problem or the novelty of your approach.
- Focus on the contribution of your work rather than the background, including only enough background to make it clear how your work differs from significant prior research.
- Include the main graphical elements that will likely be used in the poster itself.
In-person attendees will need to bring a physical poster that can be displayed during the poster session at the conference. The space allocated for each poster is 48 inches by 48 inches (121 x 121 cm). Posters are recommended to be no longer or wider than 45 inches (114 cm) in either dimension; however, up to 47 inches (119 cm) is allowable. Smaller posters are acceptable. For example, either A0 (vertical format) or A1 is an acceptable size for the poster.
Posters should be affixed to the poster boards with push pins, not tape. The conference will provide push pins. Each board will have a label indicating where your poster should be placed; please allow time to find your board and set up your poster.
For remote attendees, we will update this section with additional tips and details, once the platform for remote poster participation is selected. No matter what platform is chosen, the goal will be to provide interesting opportunities for interacting with the “posters” and the poster presenters.
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 2023 Accessibility Co-Chairs (Siddharth Mehrotra, Franklin Mingzhe Li, and Ruolin Wang) are working closely with this year’s Poster Co-Chairs in welcoming questions, feedback, or guidance related to making posters abstracts accessible for the ACM Digital Library.
