Instructions for presentations and posters

Oral presentations

Speakers are requested to prepare their presentation in *.pptx or *.ppt format. Presentations have to be stored on an USB memory drive and presented to the technical assistant at the speaker preparation room preferably two breaks but no later than the last break prior to the session. The chairs of the session are responsible for strict compliance with the time schedule.

Speakers must strictly adhere to the time allowed for oral presentations which is:

- 35 minutes for plenary speakers (followed by 10 minutes discussion)
- 25 minutes for keynote speakers (followed by 5 minutes discussion)
- 12 minutes for other presenters (followed by 3 minutes of discussion)

Poster presentations

The standard poster size (A0) is 118 cm (height) x 84 cm (width). The poster should not exceed these dimensions. The title of the poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters of about 25 mm. The author(s)’ name(s) and affiliation(s) must be placed below the title. The smallest text on the poster should be at least 9 mm high, with important points appearing in a larger font size.

The poster must cover the key points of the research presented. Make your poster is easy to read. Use colour to highlight important messages and to make your poster more attractive. Complement your text with pictures, diagrams, drawings, and figures, wherever possible. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save you time that you can use for discussions and questions.

The organisers will provide all materials for attaching and fixing the posters.
