Presentation guidelines

Please aim for 20 minute-long presentations, with 10 minutes for questions.

Your slides should be uploaded and tested on the conference computer in the first 15 minutes of the coffee or lunch break immediately preceding your presentation. Presenters in oral sessions scheduled immediately after Keynote Speeches are kindly asked to upload and test their presentation 15 minutes before the Keynote Speech of that day.

Please provide your slides on a usb stick, in either .pptx or .pdf format, embedding fonts and sound- and video-files if necessary. A remote control with laser pointer will be provided.

Recommended poster size is A0 portrait.

Poster sessions take place after either a lunch or coffee break; if you wish to do so, you can present your poster during these breaks as well. Upon registration you will receive a conference leaflet indicating which poster board to use, but each poster session will have a chair who can be contacted for further assistance.
