Information for presenters

Oral presentations

Oral presentations will be scheduled in 15-minute time slots. Presentations should not exceed 12 minutes, to allow at least 3 minutes for response to questions from the audience and discussion. The time limit will be strictly enforced to keep the Workshop to schedule.

A projector, computer and a screen will be set up in the conference hall for PowerPoint presentations. To minimise any compatibility problems, please assure that your presentation design does not exceed XGA (1024 x 768).

Poster Presentations

We do not want to limit your creativity but we would like to fully appreciate your work. Please, have a look at following tips and instructions for poster presentations.

  • Size of posters: 70 cm wide by 100 cm long (size requirements must be strictly adhered to so they fit within the space assigned to them)
  • Do not overcrowd the page
  • Limit the text to the essentials, the poster must tell your work mainly through pictures / graphics / tables.
  • It must be able to be read in a few minutes.
  • The colour of the text should contrast strongly with the background, avoid background images if they limit clarity and legibility of your poster.
  • Font should be large enough to be read at least 1 m away.
  • Avoid stretching the text across the width of the poster, keep the text in shorter blocks.
  • Introduction should be short and include essential information necessary to understand the study and why it was done.
  • Objectives should be clearly stated in as few words as possible.
  • Methods should be briefly described.
  • Results should be presented as graphs or tables. They should be self-explanatory with a clear legend.
  • Main references should be included
  • Printed A4-format copies of your poster are welcome in order to share it among interested participants

Posters will be on display throughout the workshop, ask instruction at the reception desk when you arrive. We are planning two poster sessions (Wednesday and Thursday afternoons). During poster sessions, presenting authors are asked to stay beside their poster to explain its content and answer question to the audience.
