Session chairs will be in meeting rooms five minutes before the session.
Poster sessions form an excellent medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel sessions. Finally you have a much longer interval of time to present your work to smaller groups in comparison to oral sessions.
The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. Your message must be clearly and noticeably displayed to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.
For your poster, a board will be provided which measures 120 cm tall by 240 cm wide (landscape orientation). You must tack up your poster before or at the start of the session. It is also your responsibility to remove your poster before the following session starts.
Some useful tips for your poster presentation:
The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 25mm high. Below the title put the author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s).
The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right. You may use arrows to lead your viewer through the poster. Use color for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than text wherever possible.
Try to state your main result in 6 lines or less, in lettering about 15mm high so that people can read the poster from a distance and can grasp the content in one holistic look.
The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9mm high, and the important points should be in a larger size. Use a sans-serif font ("Helvetica" PostScript font) to make the print easier to read from a distance.
Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your efforts for technical discussions. There will be a brief oral summary presentation session at the beginning of the poster sessions at EUSIPCO2005. The authors should prepare 2 to 4 PowerPoint slides for their poster presentations.
You must attend your poster during the whole two hours duration of the poster session.
Each paper is allocated 20 minutes, made up of 15 minutes of actual paper presentation with the remaining 5 minutes for questions and discussions. All presenters are kindly requested to contact the chairperson at the start of the session and to upload their Powerpoint file to the computer in the session room. No overhead projector will be available in the rooms.

STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION
EUSIPCO 2005 will organize a student paper competition, which is becoming one of the traditional activities of the EUSIPCO conferences. Papers submitted with students as first authors will be eligible to enter the competition. The student authors should nominate themselves for the student paper competition, which will then be further evaluated by the conference reviewers and select the deserving award recipients. The competition award winners will be listed on the official EUSIPCO 2005 website as well as receive recognition in the Eurasip Newsletter. There will also be monetary awards.
This student paper competition is a great opportunity for student researchers, and we encourage all eligible student authors to participate. For eligibility, students must be the first author of the nominated paper, must attend EUSIPCO 2005 conference and present the paper.
Student Paper Competition Guidelines
Students interested in participating in the Student Paper Competition should register for the Conference via the Online Registration and Paper Submission System from the Conference Website. The student author should be listed as the first author. The first author will be considered the “corresponding author” and will be required to coordinate communication with the Conference. Other individuals may be listed as co-authors, if appropriate. Paper must comply with all the rules of paper submission for EUSIPCO2005 for the student paper to be reviewed during the Student Paper Competition Process.

A student may submit up to two entries (on substantially different topics). Each student must indicate that their paper is to be considered for the competition by checking the appropriate box at the Conference Online Registration and Paper Submission System when registering the Paper.
The Review Process
A committee of reviewers selected by the conference committee will review the documents and rate them according to quality, relevance, and correctness. The conference technical committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation in the conference. If a paper nominated for the student paper competition is accepted by the Conference, the paper will automatically advance to the Paper Review for the Paper Competition.
The Student Paper Competition Committee will use the reviewer's scores to select the top entries. Ten (10) Finalists with the highest average score will be selected. Each Finalist must attend the Conference and present his or her paper in the regular conference program, either as an oral or poster presentation - no substitutes will be permitted and those papers whose first authors do not present their papers will be withdrawn from the competition. A panel of judges will review each presentation.

Multiple papers may be selected for first, second and third places in case of equal scores.
