The Poster track will provide an ideal opportunity for conference attendees to learn about new and innovative work-in progress, and to preview on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Poster Committee based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Accepted posters will be displayed in a dedicated poster area, and presented during a poster reception. Poster Papers will appear in a separate proceedings distributed to conference attendees. To encourage poster submissions of good quality, two Poster Awards will be presented at the conference. For more information, please send e-mail to the Posters Chair at posters@www10.org.hk.
