Posters Preparation

Posters size should fit A0 format (119 x 84 cm). There will be two posters sessions in January 30th and January 31st respectively. Each author is responsible for looking in the Conference Program in which of these sessions he/she is expected to present their poster and to install / remove it by the given deadlines.

Posters should be exhibited in the day they will be presented from 8:30 AM to 18:00 and it will be required the presence of the author standing by the poster from 17:00 to 18:00 for discussions. It is encouraged for the rest of the time the inclusion of a number of the author's business cards attached to the poster as a way to communicate with interested people when you are not there. The location for the posters session will be indicated onsite at the conference desk.


PERVASIVE HEALTH 2008 accepts submissions that describe original, research work not submitted or published elsewhere. All paper submissions must be anonymous. Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper.

To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and conference proceedings, we strongly encourage authors to use Times-Roman fonts. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your proposal will not be reproduced correctly.

If creating a PDF file, please make sure that you are using Type 1 fonts, which are embeddable. Please make sure that all fonts and subset fonts are embedded.


Graphics should be inserted, rather than cutting and pasting. Do not link to a graphic. The manuscript's graphics should have resolutions of 600dpi for monochrome, 300 dpi for grayscale, and 300 dpi for color. We suggest that you use a text box to insert a graphic (which is ideally a 300 dpi TIFF or EPS file, with all fonts embedded) because, in an Word document, this method is somewhat more stable than directly inserting a picture. To have non-visible rules on your frame, use the MS Word "Format" pull-down menu, select Text Box > Colors and Lines to choose No Fill and No Line.


Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document. Use the same text that is submitted electronically along with the author contact information.


List and number all references at the end of the document. The references can be numbered in alphabetical order or in order of appearance in the paper. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence [1]. The end of the document should include a list of references containing information similar to the following example:

[1] D. E. Ingalls, "Image Processing for Experts," IEEE Trans. ASSP, vol. ASSP-36, pp. 1932-1948, 1988.

Illustrations & Colors

Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All halftone illustrations must be clear in black and white.

Page Numbers

Do not put page numbers on your document. We will add appropriate page numbers to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.
