Call for Posters

The poster sessions of CARMA 2018 will provide an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. These sessions are informal and highly interactive, and allow authors and participants to engage in in-depth discussions about the presented work from which new collaborations, ideas, and solutions can emerge.

Posters should cover the same key areas as the main research tracks and should contain original cutting-edge ideas, as well as speculative/provocative ones. Proposals of new research directions and innovative interdisciplinary approaches are also welcome.


Authors should submit a two-page extended abstract of their poster. Submissions must be in PDF, and must be done by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The poster submission deadline is 4 June. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

At least one of the poster authors is required to register at the conference and will be required to give a brief presentation of the poster in the interactive poster session.
