Posters are short papers presented as a printed poster and displayed during the conference. They can be on any subject related to the conference themes, above, including an expanded explanation of Digital Art work.

Posters are ideal for display of:

  • very new work
  • work in progress
  • work that does not fit into standard categories
  • small improvements on existing techniques
  • latest results produced since other deadlines passed
  • work of interest to specialised groups
  • undergraduate student project work
  • testing of a published result
At scheduled times during the conference we ask poster presenters to be available at their posters for further discussion with delegates. The posters will also be published in the conference CD ROM.

How to submit a poster

  1. Create a usercode at the conference submission site:
  2. Follow the link to Submit Contribution and fill out the form.

If accepted, bring your poster to the conference and mount it in the Poster area as directed.

Format of Posters

The space allowed for a Poster is 840mm x 1188mm, (A0 size). We prefer posters to be printed as one sheet but we can accept a collage version.

The pdf version will be what appears on the CD ROM. This should be no more than 2Mb. We recommend including a URL for any additional material.

Since we are encouraging originality in presentation, There is no standard format outside these guidelines. The finished poster must, however include:

  • A title

Selection of Posters

Selection will be done by a small committee of GRAPHITE chairs. As far as possible, we aim to include all work of a sufficient standard rather than operate competitively. So please don't wait for the deadline to submit. Good work submitted early will be judged as it comes in. We aim to notify acceptance or rejection within a week of submission.

Posters submissions within the last week up to the deadline will be held back and the final acceptances and rejections all sent out together on or about 20 October.
