|The poster presentations at the SCEE 2006 will have a prominent role in
the program. Every poster presentation will include a short (2
minutes; only a single sheet allowed) plenary talk. There will be a
special session of such short talks before each poster session. The goal
of this talk is to draw attention to your poster.
All accepted abstracts for poster presentation will be published in the
Book of Abstracts. Moreover, final papers of oral and poster
presentations have equal opportunity to be accepted for the final
Proceedings, which will be reviewed separately.

Short plenary talk
Every poster presentation includes a short (2 minutes) plenary talk.
Before each poster session, there is a plenary session consisting of
such short talks. The goal of these short talks is to draw attention to
your poster. Of course, it is not possible to give an in-depth overview
of your research in such a short time. The in-depth overview of your
research should be presented during the poster session. Keep the
following guidelines in mind when preparing your short talk.
Prepare just a single overhead sheet, or one PowerPoint slide.
If you prepare one slide, you are kindly asked to provide it before the oral session (i.e before 9:00).
Restrict yourself to results. People who are interested in the methods
you used should come to your poster presentation.
Do not exceed the allotted time. When the chair signals that it is time,
stop talking. Because many people want to speak, we have to be very
strict in the time limit.
Make sure you are present at the poster presentation following your
talk! That's where the real transfer of knowledge and ideas should
Remember that this short talk is only to "advertise" your poster
presentation. The only goal of the short talk is to catch people's
attention. Therefore, it is of vital importance that you keep it short,
and that you are present at the poster presentation.
We provide an example of creating a poster in LaTeX, issued by C.
Milazzo from University of Catania for SCEE2004.
Note that it is recommended that you personalize these example to your
own taste, so as to prevent that all posters look too similar.
