The SPLASH Poster track provides an excellent forum for authors to present their recent or ongoing projects in an interactive setting, and receive feedback from the community. We invite submissions covering any aspect of programming, systems, languages and applications. The goal of the poster session is to encourage and facilitate small groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. It is held early in the conference, to promote continued discussion among interested parties.


Posters shall be evaluated both on their contributions and on how effectively they communicate those contributions. All poster proposals should include the following two files in PDF format:

  • A two-page extended abstract in the ACM acmart Master Article Template, sigplan subformat, with 10pt font (PDF Format).
  • The poster itself in PDF format. Posters should be A0-sized or smaller (portrait or landscape).

The two page extended abstract will be published in the DL and should conform with the SIGPLAN (formatting) standards. Poster authors are required to attend the scheduled interactive poster session, staying with their poster so that they can discuss their work with conference attendees. We will provide more details on the exact date and time of the poster sessions closer to the conference.

Poster authors may post an informal schedule along with their poster, listing times when they plan to be available for discussion later on during the conference. Sign-up sheets allow interested viewers to obtain further information. All posters will have an associated message board, on which viewers can post comments, ideas, and questions and on which poster authors will be able to post responses.

Poster authors should submit their extended abstract and poster via HotCRP. Please see below if you have a paper appearing at SPLASH and would like to have a poster on that topic as well.

On the submission form, please submit the 2-page extended abstract as the “Submission”, and the actual poster as the “Poster”. The maximum size of each PDF file can be 30MB.

Posters Associated with other SPLASH Tracks, Workshops, and Conferences

Given that the papers have already been thoroughly reviewed before acceptance, such posters will not be reviewed by the Posters Committee and there will be no separate extended abstract in the SPLASH Companion proceedings. We still require authors to sign up so that we can order enough poster boards and other supplies.

If you have a paper appearing at SPLASH and would like to present a poster, please fill out this form. You must complete this form by October 1.
