The sixth annual ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries was held on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC from June 11th to June 15th, 2006. The poster and demonstration session was held on the evening of June 12th and provided presenters and conference attendees an opportunity to discuss their work informally over food and drinks. Prior to this reception, presenters had an opportunity to promote their presentation and attract conference attendees during the entertaining Minute Madness session. Kept on schedule via the use of a punctuality-inspiring bike horn, presenters had one minute each to pitch their entries via traditional as well as creative avenues such as haikus and poems.

As usual the poster and demo session was a great venue for presenting works-in-progress, late-breaking results, or other initiatives that would benefit from discussion with the community. Rick Furuta (Posters Chair, Texas A&M University) and Xia Lin (Demos Chair, Drexel University) put together this year's posters and demos program with 35 poster and 13 demo presentations participating. Attendees voted for the Best Poster award, sponsored by University of North Carolina's School for Information and Library Sciences, which went to Rodriguez, Bollen, and Van de Sompel for their poster "An analysis of the bid behavior of the 2005 JCDL program committee".
