ACM womENcourage 2021 invites everyone to submit their work to the Poster Track. Posters provide womENcourage participants with an opportunity to present their work, benefit from insightful feedback and discussion, exchange knowledge and establish collaborations.
We welcome poster submissions from all areas of computer science and computational sciences. As the theme of this year is “Bridging Communities to Foster Innovation” we would like to encourage the authors to stress in their submissions:

The connecting nature of their work (e.g., bridging different scientific disciplines or sub communities within computer science, academia and industry, researchers from different countries or institutions).

The innovative character of their work (e.g., new research achievements, new applications of existing technology in industry/society).

 Submission guidelines:

The authors should submit two PDF documents:

(a) the extended abstract. The extended abstract should include  the title, authors’ names and affiliations, as well as provide concise overview of the research, and should not exceed two pages in the ACM format, including bibliographic references. LaTeX users must use the provided acmart.cls and ACM-Reference-Format.bst without modification, enable the conference format in the preamble of the document (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}), and use the ACM reference format for the bibliography (i.e., \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}). The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments.

(b) visual poster. The poster should also include the title, authors’ names and affiliations, and a visually compelling presentation of the research presented in the extended abstract. The poster might also include QR codes to link to online materials. The poster should be limited to a single A4 page.

Submissions should be in English and fit the conference topics.

The submissions must comply with the ACM Policy on Plagiarism, Misrepresentation, and Falsification. 

Submissions can have multiple authors (of any gender). At least one author of each accepted poster is expected to attend the event and present the poster. Authors of accepted posters can apply for womENcourage Scholarship
