About the Posters Track

The Posters Track welcomes submissions from researchers, practitioners, and PhD students. We encourage submissions that cover various forms of research, including but not limited to empirical, theoretical, and tool-oriented investigations. The topics of interest for the posters track align with those of the main conference and encompass all areas related to research and practice in agile software development. The primary objective of the poster session is to foster face-to-face discussions among conference participants, promoting reflection on the past, sharing innovative ideas in the early stages of research, and inspiring visions for the future. We believe that this interactive setting will spark collaboration between practitioners and researchers on their projects.

The posters will be displayed all day long during the conference day (June 5-7, 2024) allowing attendees to visit the posters at their convenience. However, authors will attend their posters only during the assigned Poster Session time frames (which will be published online when the final program is available). At least one author of each accepted poster must register for the conference and present the work during the poster session.

Each accepted poster can be accompanied by a paper (up to 4 pages), which will be included in the post-conference proceedings, along with PhD symposium papers and academic workshop papers. These proceedings will be published with Springer in their Lecture Notes on Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.


We invite two types of poster submissions:

  • A standalone poster without an accompanying extended abstract in the Springer post-proceedings. 
  • An extended abstract of four pages (including figures, tables and references) in Springer format. If accepted, a poster will be presented during the poster session, while the extended abstract will be published in the Springer post-proceedings.

Regardless of the submission type, posters should convey reflection on the past, share innovative ideas or tools in early stages of research, or inspire visions for the future. In order to have a poster presented at the conference, either a poster or an extended abstract must be submitted for review by the specified deadline. All submissions will undergo a single-blind reviewing process, conducted by at least two members of the Program Committee. 

Authors of extended abstracts should consult Springer’s author guidelines and use their proceedings templates for LaTeX or Word for submission preparation. All necessary resources can be found here.

All submissions should be made through EasyChair.

Participants in the PhD Symposium are invited to present their work at the Poster Session without undergoing the poster review process.

Poster Printing

For all accepted poster abstracts, authors should prepare and bring a printed poster themselves. Free University of Bozen-Bolzano provides a service to print the poster. To avail of this service, a print-ready PDF file is mandatory. All submissions should be made through a shared folder (the link will be provided later).

Best Poster Award

The best poster award will be presented during the main conference. Conference participants are encouraged to participate in the selection of the best poster through a dot voting system, where they allocate stickers to their favorite posters.

Guidelines for Creating Good Posters

Posters help you to advertise your research, fostering discussions and helping you to communicate your research ideas in an early stage. The following guidelines should help to design a good poster that fosters discussions with interested members of the audience:


  • Poster size is A1 (594 mm x 841 mm). The poster should have an ample supply of push-pins
  • Poster should have a portrait, no landscape layout
  • Consider borders during the print if you design your poster in tools such as Microsoft Powerpoint
  • The scale for images should be 1/1 so they do not appear stretched



  • The poster contains the title, author(s), affiliation(s), and contact information of the main author
  • All materials on the poster should be easily readable from more than 1m away
  • In general, posters should be self-supporting. Make sure your poster is structured logically, from top to bottom, or with a similar easy-to-follow logical structure. Try to reach a balanced mix of text and graphical content
  • Be concise and brief as possible. Illustrations, graphics, and figures greatly increase readability. Minimise narrative and long paragraphs. Bullet lists are also a concise and effective way to communicate a series of points
  • Statistical data should be titled and summarised in a clear, concise format
  • Consider having a barcode that links to your project somewhere (e.g. bottom or top) in the poster could help you raise attention for your research project
