Ideas Fair for Visual Papers


Visual Papers provide an opportunity for researchers to share their research and engage in more detailed conversation. The “Ideas Fair” provides an important venue for presentation of research using posters, videos and a variety of other media.

Below is an important message from Prof Sue Beeton, Chair of the Ideas Fair outlining the concept and providing some suggestions for those considering this format. More video messages will be added as you get closer to preparing the presentations.


From the "Ideas Fair" session at the conference, the best visual presentation will be selected. The evaluation criteria is listed below:

  • Overall visual impact (15 points)
  • Relevance to the Conference Theme (5 points)
  • Relevance of the material presented to the style of presentation (10 points)
  • Interest of topic (5 points)
  • Appropriate research approach/method (5 points)
  • Contribution to the field (academic/industry) or its potential if exploratory or working paper (10 points)

The highest rated presentation (out of 50 points) will be awarded the Best Visual Presentation award. Click HERE to learn more about this (and other) award opportunities.  


More details on the "Ideas Fair" for Visual Papers will be available soon, along with our own Facebook page. Please check back regularly.
