For oral presentations
The conference computers in the session rooms are being supplied with Office 2016 and PDF Viewer (MS-Windows operating system). The projectors support Full HD format (16:9, 1920×1080 pixels).
To make sure you take advantage of the projector’s full resolution, i.e. use of the entire screen surface and sharp images, it is recommended to prepare your PowerPoint slideshow using the default PowerPoint setting.
If you have images or videos in the presentation, please insert them in the presentation file; do not use links. Only fonts included in the basic installation of MS-Windows are available.
You will not be able to use your own laptop computer during the sessions for their presentation. You will need to bring your PowerPoint (or PDF) presentation on USB Memory stick and load it on the conference computer of your session room during a break before a previous session. Please also report to your session chair before the session begins. When your session is over, your presentation will be deleted; no copies or backups will be made.
The total time allocated for oral presentations is exactly 20 minutes including questions and discussion.
As the schedule is very tight, it is important to scrupulously respect the time allotted to each presentation. Therefore, please do not exceed 16 minutes for your presentation (24 minutes for a Keynote presentation) to allow for discussion and the transition to the next speaker. Strict compliance with the schedule is essential to the success of the conference and we rely on you.
Taking photographs is not authorized during the oral presentations.
For poster presentations
Posters should be in “portrait” (vertical) orientation with maximum dimensions of 36 inches (3 feet) wide x 48 inches (4 feet) high or 92 cm wide x 122 cm high. Thus, ISO paper size A0: (841 mm wide x 1189 mm high or 33.11 inches wide × 46.81 inches high) is suitable.
We will provide you with push pins to fix your poster.
Posters are expected to be nailed up as soon as Monday morning and withdrawn as late as Wednesday noon. This exceeds by far the actual duration of the scheduled poster session but it is expected that informal scientific communication and information circulation will be favoured by this long exposure time.
You might wish to prepare A4/US letter copies of your poster for people who are interested in taking home your poster info – this will avoid awkward picture-taking moments.
