  1. How is the quality of Easy-pull Banners?

    The Easy-pull Banner has good resolution, color range, and durability. We have been testing it with various fonts, sizes, images, equations, etc. and the output is quite acceptable.

  2. What if I missed the deadline to submit my poster?

    Due to the production schedule and also the Chinese Lunar New Year right before WSDM2011, any late poster submissions may run the risk of their poster not being produced by the conference. In such case, the author is requested to print the poster on his/her own and bring it to the poster session. We plan to have a few generic Easy-pull stands available for displaying their posters. These stands should not be removed from the conference venue.

  3. What is the cost of producing the Easy-pull Banner for the author?

    The WSDM2011 will cover the cost of producing the posters. There is no cost to the authors.

  4. Can I modify the template?

    Yes, you may modify the template. However, make sure your final output is within 80cm (W) x 130cm (H) or 31.5 in (W) x 51 in (H).
