The duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes (unless otherwise noted). You will have 15 minutes for the presentation itself and 5 minutes for questions from the audience.
A LCD projector & computer (Windows 8, MS Powerpoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in every session room for regular presentations. Please bring your presentation on a USB, as well as email it to yourself so you have a backup.
Preparation of Visuals:
PLEASE NOTE THAT INDIVIDUALS USING COMPUTER PROJECTION MUST BRING A MEMORY STICK CONTAINING THEIR PRESENTATION. Files can be uploaded to the local PCs in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. To avoid software compatibility problems (MS Powerpoint), speakers are advised to bring a .ppt or .pptx or PDF-version of their presentation.
Speakers should arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the chair person. If you are presenting during a session which does not have a break before it, report to your presentation room 15 minutes prior to the session before yours.
Posters will be up just during your presentation session, and should be removed afterwards. You must be present at your poster for the duration of your assigned poster session. Find the poster times in the Program.
The placement of your poster will be marked on the panel, where it will be presented with the number of your poster contribution. Look for your number in the conference program.
The poster size we recommend is A0 (33.1 x 46.8 in), but if you prefer landscape format that is acceptable. Poster boards will be 8' wide by 4' tall.
Your posters will be attached to the panel with push pins or velrco dots, which will already be available on the panel. If you need more push pins or Velcro dots to hang your poster, please ask at registration.
