If a poster has multiple authors, do we all need to stand by the poster during our session?
During the Posters sessions, the poster must be staffed at all times by at least one person. You do not all need to stand by the poster throughout the session. In fact, you may wish to “tag team,” taking turns at your own poster and seeing the other posters in the session.
Two of my Posters submissions were accepted. Which one should I present?
If at all possible, both posters should have a presenter. If your submissions have co-authors and they are attending SIGGRAPH 2020, please ask them to help present. If you are the only author attending the conference, you can present a different poster at each session. You may wish to leave a note on each poster indicating the session at which you will present it.
Should I bring the poster with me? Or can I ship it to the convention center?
SIGGRAPH 2020 does not accept posters shipped to the convention center. Please bring your poster with you.
Where in the convention center will my poster be located?
You will receive detailed information regarding the exact location of your poster at the convention center. Typically, there are Student Volunteers who staff the Posters area, and they can help you identify where your poster will be presented.
I would like to give a demo during my poster presentation. Is this possible?
Poster presenters are encouraged to demo their work during the Posters sessions, using their own laptops or tablets, in front of their posters.
Will tables be provided for each poster?
We cannot promise every poster will get a table. There will be a small amount of portable presentation tables on site. These will be first come, first served.
Will I have an internet connection for my laptop?
Wireless internet access will be available throughout the convention center. Please be aware the wireless network is often slow, as thousands of people try to access it simultaneously.
Will AC power be available for my laptop or other devices?
We can’t promise that AC power outlets will be available for everyone. Please charge your batteries before the session.
Can I leave my laptop or other equipment there before or after the session?
No. The Poster Sessions are in unsecured open areas. Take your laptop and all your gear with you.
