Instructions for presenters

Guidelines for oral presentations

Presentation time is 25 minutes for long papers and 15 minutes for short papers, including introductions, questions and switching between presentations.

Please plan for your actual presentation to last no more than 20 minutes if you have a long paper and 12 minutes if you have a short paper. This allows 5 minutes (for long papers) and 3 minutes (for short papers) for questions and switching presenters. It is very important that the sessions remain on time.

Please note that we are following the procedure below for oral presentations:

Guidelines for poster presentations

We request that your posters be at most A0 size (84 cm wide x 118 cm high — 33.1 in × 46.8 in) in a portrait orientation. Materials for attaching posters to poster boards (push-pins, double-sided tape, etc.) will be provided. The poster boards have approximately 1m length x 2m height.

Please affix your poster to your assigned poster board prior to your specified poster session, i.e., during the break immediately preceding your session. We have scheduled two parallel poster sessions with clusters of papers in the same topics that run simultaneously to the oral presentation sessions. You will need to remove your poster immediately the end of your session, i.e., exactly when the next break starts.

The organizing committee has chosen to have more poster sessions with fewer papers, giving these sessions an equal footing to the oral sessions. Hopefully, the poster sessions will be as well attended as oral sessions.
