This year, ISMAR will be held in a hybrid mode. Participants can choose to attend the virtual conference or the on-site conference. For the virtual one, they will be able to meet using the Gather Town platform, where they can seamlessly switch from a video-game-like environment to a video chat to engage into a conversation. And the physical venue of the on-site conference is: Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, 392 Havelock Rd, Singapore 169663.
Except for the on-site schedule, the poster sessions will also be organised virtually in dedicated poster rooms in Gather Town. These rooms will have virtual boards where the posters will be visible. During the poster sessions, the authors will virtually stand next to the poster and be able to engage in a conversation with other participants via video. If the authors cannot present their posters on-site, they can choose to participate the conference and present their posters on-site. For the authors who can present their posters in person, they also can simultaneously participate the virtual conference if they wish.
This page will give you a quick overview of what you can present in the poster session along with instructions on how to send your material.
As the conference will be held in a hybrid mode, for the virtual conference we ask the authors to prepare a poster in image format (.jpg or .png or .webp) (MANDATORY). All posters should be HD resolution (1920 x 1080), landscape orientation and max 3MB in size. Meanwhile for the on-site conference, a one-page (one-side) poster of A1 size (either portrait or landscape) is appreciated. Please confirm with the Poster Chairs via email that you will prepare both for the poster session if you attend the conference in person.
There is no specific template for the poster (on-site presentation), but we ask the authors to put the following information:
Think about your poster as a support material for you to discuss with participants. Avoid long text paragraphs and try to be clear and concise.
In addition to the poster, we ask the authors to prepare a single teaser slide for advertising for your poster (OPTIONAL). All the poster teaser slides will be assembled into a “fast-forward” teaser video. Therefore, the slide should be a visual summary of your poster. Your single slide should be in image format (.jpg or .png or .webp), landscape orientation and HD resolution (1920 x 1080). Please put following elements on the teaser slide:
Please leave a blank (white) space of 150×150 pixels in the bottom right corner, in order for us to add the poster board identifier later.
In order to help us with the organisation, please observe the following naming conventions when uploading your materials:
Filename for the Poster image: “Poster_ID####.jpg”
Filename for the Teaser slide: “Slide_ID####.jpg”
Where #### is the poster ID associated with your submission.
Gather Town is a fully interactive virtual interaction platform, in the style of a retro video game. Users can explore an interactive 2D world through a digital avatar. Users view the space as a 2D top-down map where they can move their character around using keyboard controls. Users can interact with each other through proximity-based video and audio chat, as well as interact with various objects and features within the virtual world.
Please consider checking out the demo/walkthrough for Gather Town: https://gather.town/app/or0cpnyelVu9M6SI/Live%20Walkthrough
The posters will be presented in Gather Town in our poster room. Each poster will have its own private booth/conversation area, with your material embedded in an interactive object. Attendees will be able to view your material by interacting with the object in your booth (using the ‘X’ key) and can converse with the presenter and other attendees through video chat, within the private booth space.
Each booth provides a private video chat with anyone else within the booth area. Your poster materials will remain embedded in the booth for the duration of the event, so that attendees can view the materials at any time. There will also be a dedicated period of time where we will ask you to be available in the booth, to discuss your poster with people who are interested.
During the live interaction session, you can also share your screen with those in the booth (like a mini presentation). You can play video, show web pages or open other materials to present inside of the booth, to any attendees within the space. This is also a good way to do a ‘synced’ viewing of any video or audio materials (where all attendees are listening/viewing at the same time).
Each of your posters will be represented as an interactive object that attendees will be able to walk up to and interact with. This object will be customized to represent the type of content you submit, images will be represented as posters on a billboard, videos as a TV screen and links as a computer station. Multiple attendees can access the embedded content at the same time, but it is important to note that any video material will not be played in sync to everyone watching (each viewing session is unique to each attendee).
For more information about Gather Town, please visit their website https://gather.town/ where you can also try out the experience for yourself.
All materials need to be submitted to dropbox no later than 23:59 on Oct 10th, 2022 AOE to be included in the ISMAR 2022 poster sessions.
Submissions after this date cannot be guaranteed to be actively part of the conference and may result in your paper being rejected from the proceedings.
It should be noted that you still need to prepare a printed poster by yourself for the on-site conference.
