Computational Social Science Winter Symposium

Pecha Kucha Sessions

Each accepted poster will be presented very briefly in highlighting talks during Pecha Kucha sessions, so that the audience can get an overview of the topics before the start of the actual poster session.

For the Pecha Kucha session, every presenter gets 2 minutes to introduce his/her poster. You may use up to three slides in total, and we recommend using as little text as possible.

Please send us your Pecha Kucha slides as a PDF-file until November 23rd to css.wintersymposium(at)gesis(dot)org. We would also like to publish your presentation slides on our website, if you prefer your slides not being published, please let us know.

Please see below the list of accepted posters to identify whether you are in the first or second Pecha Kucha session.

Poster Exhibition 

Please bring the printed poster to the event. You may start installing it as soon as registration opens on the first day of the symposium. The official poster session will be in the afternoon, but it might be possible that participants can already take a look at the posters during the lunch break.

The poster board measures 120x150cm (portrait orientation), so we recommend a poster in size A0 (84,1 x 118,9 cm, portrait).If you want to print it locally, you may go to: WB Druck + Kopie GmbH, Christophstraße 52.

We would also like to ask you to send your poster as PDF or PPT-file to css.wintersymposium(at)gesis(dot)org, since we would like to publish it on our conference website after the event.
