    Interactive Paper Author FAQs
    Interactive (poster) papers offer the unique opportunity for authors to make a 2-minute oral presentation during a technical session PLUS have a poster of their work displayed during the entire conference + get direct feedback from other attendees during the Interactive Paper Session.

    Interactive Paper presenters need to prepare 3 things:
    1. Proceedings manuscript (see above)
    2. Poster for viewing
    3. Presentation slides for your 2-minute oral preview. Refer to your acceptance letter or the Program for the day and time of your preview talk.

    Prepare your Poster: Posters must fit within a 1-meter x 1-meter space. Suggestions for how to prepare a good poster are below.

      Poster Preview Slides
      We recommend you prepare 3-5 slides; keep your 2-minute presentation concise and focus on the key points:

      • What problem did you want to solve?
      • What was your approach/methodology?
      • What are your results?

      The goal is to entice people to come talk with you about your work during the Interactive Paper Session.​ (Don't forget to include a slide with the name and authors of the paper!)

        Poster Set-up
        Begins Wednesday morning. Please bring your poster with you when you register onsite and pick up your badge.

        • Your poster location will be identified by a sign with your photo, name, and paper title.
        • Materials will be supplied for hanging the poster.
        • Proximity to an electrical outlet is not guaranteed given the space so please plan accordingly

        During the Interactive (Poster) Paper Session: It is important that you stand by your presentation during the entire scheduled time of the Session so that you are available to discuss your work with attendees. We hope you will enjoy the lively interaction that this direct contact provides.

        Author Resources

        1. Packaging your Powerpoint Slides
        Detailed instructions can be found in the Package Your Power Point Slides pdf. Here is an overview:

        • In Powerpoint, select FILE –> EXPORT –> Package Presentation for CD.
        • Be sure to check the boxes to "include linked files and embedded TrueType fonts".
        • Check "Inspect presentation for inappropriate or private information" if you have concerns about this.
        • No need to add a password.
        • Select "Copy to Folder".
        • We recommend creating a new folder to hold the entire package; it will contain the PPT and any associated files. Give the folder a unique name, easy to identify, and compact. (hint: YearMonthSurnameInitial, ie. 2019YeeSeptM).
        • Confirm that you really do want to copy all the linked files to your computer; this  includes any files that might be on company servers.
        • After you click "Yes", a package is created and placed in the location you specified above. It will contain the PPT presentation with all of the fonts and graphics embedded. Put a backup copy on a USB drive and bring it with you to the conference.

        2. How to Update/Edit Author Information in OpenConf

        • Go to the OpenConf homepage.
        • Click Edit Submission.
        • Enter your OpenConf Submission ID number and password: If you have forgotten your password, there are measures to change your password on the OpenConf site.
        • Click Edit Submission.
        • Review the submission and correct any information that has changed.
        • Click Submit Changes.

        3. How to Upload your Files to OpenConf
        • Go to the OpenConf homepage.
        • Click Upload File.
        • From the pulldown menu, select your upload type: (i.e., manuscript, photo, copyright)
        • Photo: a 3"x3" JPEG file that is 300 dpi (900 pixels x 900 pixels) is sufficient.

        • Click Choose File to select the file you want to upload.
        • Click Upload File.

        4. How to Prepare a Good Poster

        • Posters must fit within a 1-meter x 1-meter space.
        • Remember: people will read your poster materials from a distance of ~ 3 feet/1 meter, so text should be large and legible.
        • Don't include too much information. Details are best presented in a form that is easy to interpret visually, without requiring a lot of time spent reading.
        • Strong visuals—images, figures, graphs—are ways to draw others to your work.
        • Each section of the poster  should have a descriptive heading; display the material in a logical sequence.
        • We discourage the use of multiple pieces of paper; a large-format print is preferred.
        • Simply affixing copies of your paper from the proceedings to your poster board is not acceptable.
        • Consider the “Better Poster” guideline and templates to assist you in preparing your poster. (These templates were created by Mike Morrison, a doctoral student in Psychology at Michigan State University.  If you want to know more and have time, his YouTube video is an entertaining exploration of some of the problems with scientific papers and his ideas for improvements.  Fast forward to 10:40 for his explanation of the template).

        About JIST

        Journal papers differ from conference papers in that they meet the standards of a peer-reviewed journal in terms of scope, originality, relevance of topic, completeness of background and references to prior work, completeness of results and discussion, and quality of language. Refer to the JIST Author Guidelines below.

        JIST-first CIC27 2019 papers are due by 24 March 2019 and are fast-tracked for review. Accepted papers are published in the journal, appear in the CIC proceedings as reprints, and are presented at CIC within the technical papers program. Decisions and requests for revision, if required, will be sent to authors by mid-May. Revisions of provisionally accepted papers are due within 10 days following the decision letter. Upon acceptance of papers, first authors will register for CIC per JIST requirements. Rejected papers will be reviewed for possible inclusion in CIC using the conference submission criteria.
