Call for PhD Posters

The IDA symposium particularly welcomes contributions by graduate students. In order to support this objective, the symposium will have a dedicated poster track for PhD student research, and it offers reduced registration rates to all students.

The poster session will not only be attended by symposium attendees, but will be open to the public and to the local research community. This gives you a great opportunity to present your work to a broad audience. If you are a PhD student and would like to present a poster about your research at this session, please submit a one-page abstract (in PDF format) by email to

To allow for early notifications for those who need to apply for funding, there will be two submission rounds this year:

1) The early poster deadline is July 19.
Notifications for all abstracts submitted on or before this date will be sent no later than July 22.

2) The late poster deadline is September 1.

All submissions submitted after the first deadline will be judged on first-come first-serve basis; authors will usually be notified within a few days. However, when the maximum number of posters has been reached no more new posters can be accepted.

To attract the audience to your poster, you are invited to submit a video of maximum two minutes length. All videos will be presented to the participants during the breaks, and the best video presentation will be awarded a prize of 300 EUR! The prize winner will be elected by the symposium attendees, who all get one vote. Posters & videos must be presented in order to be eligible to the prize. Details about video submission will be made available here shortly.
