Oral presentation guidelines

Please note that speakers will have to bring their presentations on USB flash drive, since own laptops cannot be connected to the system.

The duration of oral presentations is 20 minutes including 5 minutes for questions from the audience. Keynote lectures and invited lectures are scheduled 30 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Plenary speakers will have 50 minutes including 5 minutes questions.

Projectors and computers (Windows, MS PowerPoint 2010 and Adobe Reader) are available in all session rooms for your presentation. Files can be uploaded to the local computers during the session breaks. Speakers must arrive in their session room 15 minutes before the start of their session and report to the session chairs. Assistants are in all session rooms for technical help if needed.

Poster presentation guidelines

Posters will be presented during two poster sessions on Monday and Tuesday. The posters must remain attached during the entire conference. The posters have to be attached between Monday morning and lunchtime. The size of the panel space available for each poster is 120 cm x 90 cm. The poster format is A0, 118.9 cm x 84.1 cm, portrait (height > width). The assigned placement of each poster is marked on the panel with the unique poster number.

The poster area is subdivided into topics. Please refer to the detailed programme and the floor plan to find the correct poster panel.

Posters will be attached to the panel with adhesive tape, which will already be available on the panel. If more tape is needed, please contact one of the conference assistants or ask at the registration desk. Authors are free to take down their poster after the conference. Remaining posters will be collected by the organizers and discarded.

20 posters will be selected for a short poster presentation. The authors of the selected posters will be notified on February 26th at the latest. The poster presentation will be 3 minutes maximum and without questions from the audience. The presentations must not be longer than three slides and no videos are allowed.
