Oral Presentation

Each oral presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes: 15 (+ epsilon) for talk + the remainder for discussion. Powerpoint or PDF slides are recommended for your talk.

The conference hall will be equipped with a presentation notebook with MS Office, Acrobat Reader, and popular programs like Windows Media Player for playing videos. Please contact us if you need any particular software for this purpose.

The presenters are kindly requested to copy their files to the conference presentation notebook and test at least 10 minutes before the session starts. We will ask the session chair to be there as well.

You can also use your own notebook for your presentation (although we do not recommend to do so). In this case we strongly suggest you make a thorough test before the sesssions starts.

It is of utmost importance that authors keep to the presentation time limit to achieve appropriate timing. Therefore, please organize your slides around the points you intend to make, use no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 2 minutes per slide when there are equations or important key points to make, and one minute per slide when the content is less complex. Slides attract and hold attention and reinforce what you say - provided you keep them simple and easy to read.

Poster Presentation

Poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel. Thus, it is important that you display your message clearly and noticeably to attract people who might have an interest in your paper. Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It need not, and should not, attempt to include all the details, you can describe them in person to people who are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. You may bring your own notebook to enhance your presentation.

The poster boards are of size 1m (width) x 2m (height). Therefore, the suggested poster size is A0: 841mm (width) x 1189mm (height). Tape and pins will be provided at the conference to mount posters on the boards.

The poster session will be held in the foyer. You will see a poster number in the conference program brochure. Please use this number to find your poster board. All posters for the first two conference days should be mounted either in the morning coffee break or in the lunch break. On Friday the posters should be mounted before the first session starts at 9am.
