Information for Presenters

For Oral Presentations
Speakers should transfer their presentation (powerpoint or PDF file) from a USB key, on to a PC in the lecture rooms before the start of their session, from 8.30 to 8.55 AM for the morning sessions, and during the breaks immediately preceding their session. Speakers will be able to use their own laptop computer for their presentation if they so desire – in this case, they should also come to the lecture room before the start of the session, as mentioned above, to check whether everything is OK. It is safest to have a copy of the presentation on a USB key in case of a problem.

We kindly ask chairs to be present at least 15 minutes before the start of the session that they will chair.

The maximum duration of talks of invited speakers in symposia is 25 minutes (20′ + 5′ for questions) and of contributed talks 15 minutes (10′ + 5′ for questions). Due to the large number of talks and the running of up to 5 sessions in parallel, we ask speakers to strictly keep to the allotted time for their talk and session chairs to be very strict in not allowing speakers to go over the allotted time.

For Posters
The posterboards are suitable for posters of A0 format (1.2m height x 0.9m width). All posters can remain posted throughout the meeting. Presenters should put up their posters on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. Please be present at your poster during the poster sessions on Wednesday (even numbers) or Thursday (odd numbers). Materials for fixing posters on the boards will be available at the reception desk. Posters should be removed before the end of the meeting, i.e. at the latest during the coffee break on Friday afternoon.
