Guidelines for EDBT/ICDT Poster Sessions, Paper Presentation Sessions, and Demo Sessions

EDBT Full Research Papers, Industrial and Application Papers

Full EDBT Research Papers and EDBT Industrial and Applications Papers will have a presentation slot of 25 minutes plus 5 minutes Q&A in one of the EBDT sessions. In order to find the session, in which a particular paper will be presented, please refer to the detailed program. Each EDBT session will have a session chair. As presenter, please contact your session chair in advance.

EDBT Short Papers and Demonstrations

During this year‘s EDBT, we will have two plenary poster sessions, where the authors of short research papers and demonstration papers will present their work at a poster stand. Posters offer researchers an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

All short research papers and demonstrations will be presented in both poster sessions (see program overview).

As author of an accepted EDBT short paper or demonstration, we therefore ask you to prepare a poster and present your work during both poster sessions. The poster should be A0 size in vertical format (1189 mm in height x 841 mm in width). The font type should be easily legible and sized to be readable at a distance of several feet or 2 to 3 meters/yards. The poster should include the paper title, full name of the authors, with presenting author(s) indicated by underlining, affiliation of the authors, and contact information for the presenting author(s). The poster should contain the key points of the paper, including the scientific goal, the problem being solved to reach that goal, the solution approach and methodology, the impact/performance of the work and related work. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative.

For accepted demonstrations, the conference organization will provide for each demo a stand with the following items:
  • a table and a chair;
  • a 220V power outlet;
  • a panel for a poster of A0 size in vertical format (for the preparation of the demo poster, see the guidelines explained above for the poster sessions);
  • wireless network connectivity.
  • The demo teams are responsible for bringing any needed equipment to the conference
