Submitted research poster proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2024 Research Posters Committee.

Required Information

  • Poster title
  • Poster author information
  • Short poster abstract (250 words maximum)
  • Extended abstract (1000 words max)
  • Topic area
  • Draft of the poster as PDF file
    • The poster does not need to be in its final version. You may make changes to your poster after acceptance, but your submission must be a representative draft of the final poster.
    • 1 page maximum
    • Posters must be submitted as A0 portrait paper size (841 mm x 1189 mm/33.1” x 46.8”) with a high resolution to ensure readability (e.g.: 2384 px × 3370 px at 72 dpi)
    • maximum file size: 10 MB

Review Process

  • Each poster is expected to receive a minimum of 3 reviewers
  • Poster reviews are single-blind: reviewers will see author names, but authors will not see reviewer names. 
  • Posters will be evaluated based on originality, significance, quality and clarity

Final decision

  • All reviews will be considered by the poster’s committee
  • Notification of the posters’ outcomes will be sent to authors



  • ISC 2024 is planned as an in-person conference from May 12 to May 16, 2024 in Hamburg, Germany. By submitting a Research Poster the submitter agrees to present it at ISC 2024 in Hamburg, Germany. In case circumstances that the submitter/speaker cannot control prevent them from attending the event, the submitter/speaker should contact ISC organizers and the research poster chair as soon as possible to discuss different options.
  • The research posters will be on display from Monday, May 13 through Wednesday, May 15, 2024. Every accepted research poster will have a very short lightning talk (one minute) within a poster pitch to capture the audience’s interest. The poster reception with snacks and drinks will give special attention to the posters and allows a maximum of interaction between poster authors and participants. Poster authors are obliged to be present at their poster during the entire reception.
  • Poster presenters need to be registered ISC 2024 participants, though one author will be granted a complimentary pass. Registrations fees will be published in 2024.
  • Travel, accommodation, registration fees for other authors, and other such expenses will not be covered by the ISC organizers.


Springer, the international publisher specializing in science, technology and medicine, sponsors the call for research posters with the research poster award.

It recognizes three outstanding research posters as selected by members of the posters committee.

The award includes a cash prize of 500 Euros (first place), 300 Euros (second place) and 200 Euros (third place).
