The Poster Session February 15, 2018 / Google NYC

About


Academia & Industry

The world of artificial intelligence today is still centered around the aspiration for machines to understand: from virtual assistants capable of anticipating our needs and helping us drafting emails or handling our complex schedule, to self-driving cars, and personalized medicine. The Poster Session aims to investigate the boundary of artificial intelligence that understands and predict what's next.

People & Community

The Poster Session intends to connect people, very much like in a poster session of an academic conference. We are bringing together individuals to show case the latest research in the fields of artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. Come learn about new technologies and discoveries made in companies or research centers - or come show your latest achievements!

Apply


A “poster” can be as simple as a 3’x 4’ board, on which you have information about your work. The poster should focus on communicating your work and how it relates to the industry.

Demos are encouraged but not required. If you plan to give a demo, please let us know in your submission so we can plan for it. Although space for your poster and WiFi will be provided, you should bring your own laptop or tablet for your demonstration.

To register as a Presenter, create an account at https://www.easychair.org, if you do not already have one, and navigate to the Poster Session [PS20170] page. You can submit your poster or demo by following the "New Submission" link in the top right corner.

Submission Requirements

We are looking for posters that address the general theme of: "technical solutions to problems in artificial intelligence." Some examples could be a novel software architecture, an analysis of a dataset, or a new process or algorithm. We are looking for submissions that dive deep into the technical problem and how you are attempting to solve it.
You can submit your poster proposals in either of two formats:

  • An abstract (100-300 words) detailing the problem and how your work addresses it
  • An initial or final draft of your poster.

In your submission, please provide any affiliation you have done the work for.

We will be looking for the best academic and the best start-up posters. We will choose three finalists from each category (academia and start-up), and each of the six finalists will give a 5-minute presentation. Three awards will then be presented:

  • Best Academic Work
  • Best Start-Up
  • People's Choice

Due to space limitations, we may have to limit acceptance. We will notify all submissions of decisions by February 5th.
