Tips for Posters
Please, read the following tips before you submit a poster for evaluation at ACMSE 2022. Be sure that your document follows all these tips:

  1. Check that your document uses the correct paper size (letter), i.e. 8.5″ x 11″.
  2. Use a double-column format, single-spaced, with a maximum length of two pages.
  3. Poster proposal submissions should not be anonymized, so please make sure you include author information (first name & last name, affiliation, city, state & country, and email address).
  4. The “Abstract” section shall consist of one or a few paragraphs. In this section, you cannot have formulas, figures, tables, bullet lists, enumerated lists, or citations.
  5. Keywords in the “Keywords” section must be separated by commas.
  6. In the title of your poster, the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., Performance Evaluation of a New Protocol). If you have a compound word in the title, you should only capitalize the initial letter of the first word (e.g., Ad-hoc, Long-term, On-site).
  7. In the title of sections (1, 2, 3, etc.), the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., Performance Evaluation of a New Protocol).
  8. In the title of subsections (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.), the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., Performance Evaluation of a New Protocol).
  9. A figure caption must be placed immediately after the corresponding figure. Be sure that the word “Figure”, the figure number, and the colon are in bold. The rest of the caption shall not be in bold (e.g., Figure 1: UDP Header). Use Arabic numbers (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.) for identifying your figures.
  10. You must cite all your figures in the document. When you cite a figure, put the F of Figure in capital letter. Also, do not use abbreviations such as “Fig.”, that is, spell out the word “Figure”.
  11. In the caption of figures, the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., Figure 1: Performance Evaluation of a New Protocol).
  12. In the caption of figures, be sure to separate the figure number from the title with a colon (“:”), that is, do not use a period, or a dash, or any other character. Do not put a space before the colon.
  13. In the caption of figures, be sure to separate the figure number from the title with a colon (“:”), that is, do not use a period, or a dash, or any other character. Do not put a space before the colon.
  14. Do not explain the content of a figure in the title of this figure. The title of a figure shall be short. Put the explanation of what is in the figure in your main text, where you cite the figure.
  15. Do not end the caption of a figure with a period.
  16. A table caption must be placed immediately before the corresponding table. Be sure that the word “Table”, the table number, and the colon are in bold. The rest of the caption shall not be in bold (e.g., Table 1: Population in Different Countries). Use Arabic numbers (Table 1, Table 2, etc.) for identifying your tables.
  17. You must cite all your tables in the document. When you cite a table, put the T of Table in capital letter.
  18. In the caption of tables, the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., Table 1: Performance Evaluation of a New Protocol).
  19. In the caption of tables, be sure to separate the table number from the title with a colon (“:”), that is, do not use a period, or a dash, or any other character. Do not put a space before the colon.
  20. Do not explain the content of a table in the title of this table. The title of a table shall be short. Put the explanation of what is in the table in your main text, where you cite the table.
  21. Do not end the caption of a table with a period.
  22. If you have acknowledgments, they shall go in the “ACKNOWLEDGMENTS” section at the end of your manuscript. It is not a numbered section. So, no number should appear before the word “ACKNOWLEDGMENTS”.
  23. The “REFERENCES” section is not a numbered section. So, no number should appear before the word “REFERENCES”.
  24. In the references, for each author, put the first name followed by the last name. For example: Donald Knuth, Bill Gates, and Edgar Truman. Be aware that “D. Knuth, B. Gates, and E. Truman” is not correct because you only used the initial letter for the first name. Also, “Knuth, D., Gates, B., and Truman, E.” is not acceptable.
  25. In the titles of the references, the initial letter of each important word must be capitalized (e.g., “Exploring a Simulation-based Approach to Teach Networking Fundamentals”).
  26. In the references, when you have two authors, there is NO comma before the “and”. For example: “Donald Knuth and Bill Gates”. However, for three or more authors, you must have a comma before the “and”. For example: “Donald Knuth, Bill Gates, and Edgar Truman”.
