Extended Abstract Submission for the Poster Session

All LACORO participants are welcome to submit an extended abstract of their current or recently published research (less than a year to the date of LACORO 2024), but this is mandatory for Master's or PhD students. There will be no proceedings for LACORO 2024.

The structure of the extended abstract must follow the same structure as a research paper, but with a page limit of 2. It should include:

  • Title, authors and their affiliations
  • Introduction: This section should introduce the problem addressed, the novelty of the research presented, a brief literature review, and a summary of the main findings.
  • Methodology: This section describes how the research was performed and should be clearly explained.
  • Results: Here, the main results should be presented and support the research's goals mentioned in the introduction.
  • Conclusions: Finally, a brief conclusion that reflects and contextualizes the main findings should be presented.

You can use the template at https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html for elaborating your abstract.

Based on the evaluation of your submitted abstract, you may be required to submit a poster for presentation during LACORO. However, you may attach the poster to the abstract submission. Below, you can find instructions for the poster submission.

The abstract should be submitted in the registration form.

Extended abstract submission opens: June 1st, 2024.

Deadline for extended abstract submission: Sunday, September 15th, 2024.

Poster Submission for Accepted Extended Abstracts

Poster submissions are welcome from all LACORO participants but are mandatory for Master's or PhD students. The poster size must be A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm).

Recommendations for poster submission:

  • A poster is a graphically rich presentation of your research, highlighting and summarizing its most essential aspects.
  • A poster should stimulate discussion. Tips for a good poster are linked below.
  • The text should be kept to a minimum.
  • Avoid tables. Use charts and graphs to show results.
  • Use high-resolution images.
  • Aim at a logical sequence of ideas between the poster sections.
  • Focus on the "big picture" of your work. You can discuss the details during the poster presentation sessions.

Suggested structure for your poster:

  • Include the titles and authors' names with their affiliations, and divide the remaining into two columns.
  • Starting from the left column, it should include an abstract (no more than 400 words), a brief introduction, methods, results and conclusions.
  • Use font size such that the text is legible from 2 meters away.
  • Use at most 2-3 styles, sizes, and text colors.
  • Be consistent in the use of margins and spacing throughout the poster.

If you plan to attach the poster to your abstract, then it should be submitted in the registration form. Otherwise, you might be contacted directly by the organizing committee to submit your poster.

Deadline for abstract submission: Friday, 1st of November, 2024.
