Presenters’ guidelines

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations are organized by parallel sessions, as indicated in the program. The time available for each presentation in parallel sessions, including questions and general discussion, is 20 minutes. The working language of the Conference is English.

Since the oral presentations are not organized centrally, authors are kindly asked to upload their presentations directly in the respective lecture room at least 30 minutes before the start of the session time block. A lecture room assistant will be available to help with this.

Computer (MS Windows or Mac environment) and beamer will be available in each room for presentations. Please use either PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) or Portable Document Format (.pdf) for presentations. Presenters are requested to bring their presentation on a USB disk. Connecting personal laptops is discouraged to avoid excessive loss of time.

It is strictly prohibited to take photos and/or copies from notebooks of any scientific material without the expressed permission by the authors.


Chairs are invited to come to the room 10 minutes prior to the start of the session. Their responsibilities are to introduce the session and the speakers, make sure that the time available is divided equally over the papers to be presented, and guide the discussion from the floor following the presentation.


Poster session

We recommend bringing a copy of the poster in the format A0 portrait. Posters should be set up on Monday (September 23) or Tuesday (September 24) during coffee breaks. The Conference Secretariat will provide all the necessary tools to hang the poster on the panel independently. A number will be assigned to each poster. The full list of posters and corresponding numbers will be available to all participants. Please, hang the poster on the board with the corresponding number.

Poster authors are required to stand next to their posters during the Poster Session (September 24, 15:00 – 16:30) in order to explain it to the interested public. The working language of the Conference is English.

Posters can be removed by the authors after the poster session on September 24 and between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

Some suggestions

  • Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster to allow viewers to easily identify your paper
  • Indicate the authors’ names and address information in order to allow interested viewers to contact you for more information.
  • Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5-2.0 metres. The type is recommended to be 2.5 cm high.
  • Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colour and double-space all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.
  • Organize the poster in a way that it is clear, orderly, and self explanatory. The poster must cover the same content as the abstract.
  • Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make it easier for a viewer to follow your display.
  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions.
  • A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey the information to an interested audience.
