Poster presentations describe work in progress. Each accepted poster will be presented in a 5 min. talk in the "Poster Trailers" session, and will be included in the final conference proceedings submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.

All poster presentations must present original and unpublished work in progress. Each poster presentation will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Posters will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference. Poster presentations are 3-5 pages long.

Quantitative and/or qualitative methods and results are welcome, as well as hypotheses-driven or more open-ended exploratory work. Submissions must clearly outline the methodology (manipulations, measurements, environment and context, etc.) and technologies used, for both replicability and enabling in-depth review. In addition, research providing novel system designs, algorithms, interface technologies, and computational methods supporting elements of situation management are encouraged. It is assumed that the submitted papers address the issues related to the general domain of situation management.
