Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Accepted presentations were given a 15-minute slot (10 min talk + 5 min Q&A) in one of the six parallel sessions running during the Conference. Please check the conference program for the scheduling of your presentation and any future updates.

Presentations must be prepared and given in English. To avoid delaying the Conference program, prepare your presentation to last 10 min max.  Session Chairpersons will introduce presentation titles and authors, and keep track of time.

For the sake of simplifying IT procedures and timekeeping, the Conference Secretariat will be in charge of collecting the presentations and making them readily available to presenting authors at the corresponding parallel session room, at the time of their talk. Strictly for this reason, we kindly ask you to send us your presentation by October 15, using the submission form at the end of this page. Alternatively, you may deliver it at the conference registration desk between 9:00 and 10.00 am on October 17.

Conference rooms will be equipped with standard desktops, Power Point/PDF presentation software, Internet connection and slide show equipment. The use of personal laptops or similar devices to deliver oral presentations will not be permitted, nor will authors be given direct access to conference room desktops to upload or test their presentations. To ensure proper and timely availability of your presentation at the corresponding parallel session room, please follow the guidelines above or contact the Conference Secretariat in early October for other arrangements.

Poster Presentation

Accepted posters can be exhibited in the dedicated hall throughout both conference days. Additionally, two poster-viewing sessions of 30 min are scheduled to take place during afternoon coffee breaks. During these sessions, presenting authors should stand close to their posters and be ready to discuss them. Please check the conference program for the scheduling of poster sessions and any future updates.

Posters must be written in English and printed to a portrait (vertical) A0 format (119 cm height x 84 cm width). Presenting authors should bring their printed posters along to the conference (rather than mail them ahead) and request assistance with their placement and exhibition in the dedicated hall at the conference registration desk between 9:00 and 10.00 am on October 17. Please follow these guidelines in preparing your poster presentations or contact the Conference Secretariat in early October for other arrangements.
