Types of Submissions
Posters, Demonstrations and Videos
One evening will be devoted to face-to-face presentations using traditional posters, short videos, and live demonstrations.
The topical content of the paper must fall within the broad range of information science. Authors may choose their preferred track at submission time; the chairs reserve the right to re-track submissions as necessary.
Submitters may choose their preferred track at submission time; the chairs reserve the right to re-track submissions as necessary.
a) Posters offer a unique opportunity to present late-breaking results, work in progress, or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Please note, however, that posters describing work that is simply a proposal will not be accepted. Presenting a poster provides a good opportunity to discuss and receive feedback in an informal way on work that is not yet mature enough for a paper.
b) Demonstrations offer a unique opportunity to present novel technology, including new devices, systems, or applications. Submissions should describe the technology and list required supporting equipment. We assume that most equipment will be supplied by the demonstrator, and reserve the right to turn down unreasonable requests.
c) Videos offer a unique opportunity to present the traditional poster or demo using a different medium. While videos may present research or demo a technology, they may also be used to describe a procedure or showcase a novel implementation.
Videos of three to ten minutes must be uploaded to YouTube, and the link supplied in the submission. The video must be original (although mashups that fairly reuse content is permitted) and 8 minutes or less in duration.
The video must include the following text overlay (after your title) or verbal statement for at least 10 seconds: "Submitted to the Association for Information Science and Technology 2010 Annual Meeting.” Post the video on YouTube (http://www.Youtube.com) and submit an abstract with the YouTube link. Five submissions will be selected for presentation at the conference.
Format of submission
Each type must be formatted according to the instructions provided in the sample template (asist2010pubsformat.doc) and be no more than two pages in length. Download the template and follow its instructions. Submit only a PDF version.
Submit your PDF version to the conference submission site (http://www.softconf.com/asis/AM_10/) by midnight, July 16, 2010 (Hawaii Standard Time).
