To be presented and displayed at the

2023 IDIES Annual Symposium

Homewood Campus

Glass Pavilion (Levering Hall)


Separate registrations required for poster entry and symposium attendance

Call for Posters

The Institute for Data-Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES) is seeking poster submissions for the 2023 IDIES Annual Symposium.


The poster session is open to members of the greater Johns Hopkins Community, including the University, Hospital, Healthcare, Space Telescope, APL, and Peabody.

Current Summer Student Fellows are not eligible for consideration for the award with their fellowship project poster, but may enter with a second poster covering a different research project.

Poster Specs and Requirements

Posters should reflect the IDIES mission ( of furthering data-intensive and computationally intensive research and education. The area of research may be in any discipline that would be of interest to IDIES members and other attendees as long as the methodology or analysis pertains to the use of big data.
Posters may be any size up to and including 44″ x 44″, however they must be free-standing. We have a limited number of easels available for use.
In order to register your poster, you will need to provide the poster title and a 100-200 word abstract.
Each poster presenter will deliver a 2-minute lightning talk summarizing their research during the IDIES Poster Madness segment prior to the poster gallery walk during lunch intermission.  
The deadline to register a poster abstract is 11:59 pm Wednesday, October 11th, 2023

Poster Printing

Poster printing is available for a nominal fee for

Analyzing energy cascade of filtered vortices using a novel turbulence database framework

(HANXUN YAO) Turbulence exists widely in nature and engineering. It is unpredictable due to its feature of being chaotic. One of the important phenomenon of turbulence is called energy cascade; it describes energy is extracted from large-scale eddies, then transfer to smaller scale eddies, and finally dissipate due to viscous effects. In this work, we use the Karman-Howarth-Monin-Hill (KHMH) equation to explore possible correlation between energy cascade and features of large-scale motions (e.g., filtered vorticity and strain rate).

Best Poster Award

The IDIES Executive Committee will present an award for the Best Poster at the Symposium in the form of a $100 Amazon gift card.

To be considered for this award, a poster’s first and presenting author must be a member or student member of IDIES. You may join IDIES at any time prior to the poster submission deadline, 11:59pm on October 11th, 2023.

You must also register separately to attend the symposium.

Poster session will take place prior to the lunch break starting at 12:00pm; registrants are strongly encouraged to attend the rest of the symposium talks.

Judges will use the following scoring guidelines to select this year’s best poster.
