Snap Stories

What is a Snap-story?

A snap-story is a visual representation that conveys the key idea of your ICALT paper. Essentially it is an advertisement for your paper! Each registered paper (Full, Short, Poster) along with its session timing and venue will feature in the program book of ICALT 2019. To help attendees get more information about each paper, its snap-story in the form of an image which enabled via Augmented Reality (AR) application will be linked to its details in the program book.

For examples, please see sample snap-story here

Guidelines to submit your snap-story

Your snap-story should be displayed onto a PPT slide 13.333 inch by 7.5 inches, 1280 by 720 pixels. (see sample snap-story).

The snap-story may be visually enhancing. Too much text may not work as well as pictures and relevant infographics.

We will make provision for the viewer to scan your snap-story through an app.

This is your chance to advertise your paper – so put on your Creative Avatar.

Send your snap stories to icalt2019@gmail.com with the subject: SnapStory for paper ID your Paper id in pptx/pdf/png formats.

We’d like to receive your slide by the 25th of June 2019 by email (icalt2019@gmail.com), so that your snap-story can be included.

Q and A

Q1. How can I create the Snap-story?

Ans: Below are some options to create the snap-story for your paper.

  1. A powerpoint presentation/ keynote slide using default size and resolution settings.
  2. Photoshop/ other editing software to create your image adhering to size and resolution mentioned above.

Q2. One slide is hardly enough to describe my innovative and path-breaking work!

Ans: Yes, you are right. The point of the snap-story is not to *describe* your work. After all, of you have a 15 or 20-minute talk or a poster in which you can describe it. The idea is to create a captivating overview of your work. It is a 'trailer for the forthcoming presentation.

Q3. Should I include the date and time of my talk/poster in my snap-story?

Ans: No, you need not, the organisers will make provisions to display the date, time, and venue.

Q4. Can we create more than one Snap-story?

Ans: No, to maintain parity we won't be able to accommodate more snap-stories for a paper.

Handling of Non-Presented Papers

One of the authors of the accepted papers is expected to attend the conference in person to present the paper and share their ideas. If a paper is included in the proceedings distributed on site and is later identified as a non-presented paper, it will still be included in the proceedings delivered to IEEE. https://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/copyright However, it will be flagged as “no-show” so that the paper will be archived but will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore. But: Copyright of non-presented papers is still retained by IEEE – an author cannot submit the same paper to another conference or journal for publication. However, you can submit elsewhere an expanded version of this paper, but prior to this, you would have to request permission from IEEE Intellectual Property Rights department using RightsLink (https://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/rights/rights_link.html). Once permission is granted, you can then expand on the paper and submit to another publication.
