***********************
CALL FOR POSTERS

The poster session provides an interaction opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their new and innovative work-in-progress and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. It gives DSAI2012 attendees a forum where they can learn about novel on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting. It also provides poster presenters with an excellent opportunity to receive invaluable feedback from knowledgeable sources.
We especially encourage submissions by students (that is, for which a student is the first author on the poster).

Poster submission

Poster proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file with no more than 1 page. Please follow the author guidelines found below on the “Poster submission template” section. Indicate the author making the presentation with an asterisk. This author will be considered the key person for all contact about the paper. Include all co-author names, affiliations and email addresses above the abstract text and below the title.
Please submit your poster proposal as a PDF e-mail attachment to dsai2012@utad.pt with the subject “Poster submission proposal”.

Posters will be peer-reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Accepted submissions will be published on the conference Book of Abstracts. Accepted poster authors will be asked to generate a poster and possible demonstration to be displayed in a dedicated poster area and presented during a poster session at the conference.

Important dates
