Instructions for Oral and Poster presentations

Oral presentations will be strictly timed by moderators to ensure that the schedule is followed. Please format your presentation as a PC-compatible Microsoft Powerpoint file (.pptx) or a PDF file, as Mac computers will not be available. All presentations should be formatted for 16:9 aspect ratio.

Speakers are expected to visit the Speaker Ready Area at the Secretary Table on the day before of her/his scheduled presentation and upload the presentation. We recommend speakers to bring their presentation on a jump/flash/usb drive. We will not be able to connect your own computer to the projection system. Talks should be tested, in particular if they include videos or animations. The recommended file formats for videos are .mp4 or .avi

Durations of presentations
Oral talks will be 12 minutes long plus 3 minutes for questions & transition between speakers.
Early Career Plenary talks will last 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.
Plenary talks will be 50 minutes long with 10 extra minutes for questions.

All posters must be 90 cm wide and 1m 20 cm high (36 inches wide and 47 inches high). We recommend leaving free space on each corner of the poster for the fasteners. Presenters will hang up their posters on the morning of the day of their assigned session on the board with the correct number leaving the board number visible.
During the poster sessions, presenters should stand near your poster to discuss the study and answer questions during the entire session. After the session finishes, we will ask presenters to remove their posters because we will be having new poster presentations on the following day.
