Information for Presenters

  • Plenary and parallel talks

  • Parallel session talks are 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for discussion. Plenary speakers will be advised of the time reserved for their talk upon invitation.

    Laptops with projectors will be available in all rooms. Please prepare your presentation in Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf) or Microsoft PowerPoint Format (.ppt, .pptx). No other formats can be supported.

    You are required to upload your presentation via the Indico system at least one hour prior to the start of your session. There is “My contributions” in the menu after logging-in. Please select it and click the “View” link. Then you can find “Edit files” and upload your presentation.

  • Posters

  • Posters should be in A0 portrait format (841 mm wide, 1189 mm high) or smaller. You must print out your poster before leaving for the conference and bring it with you. Please note that there are no printing facilities in the conference venue.

    Each poster will be assigned a number and you are expected to tack your poster to the board with the corresponding number. To confirm your poster number, please log-in the Indico system and select “My contributions” in the menu. Pins will be provided. Posters can be displayed for the entire duration of the conference.

    The poster session will start at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. For those of you that receive odd numbers you should be at your posters for discussions from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., while those receiving even numbers should stand next to their posters from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This way everyone has time to see the other posters and be found by other attendees for discussions.

    Poster presenters are also requested to upload their presentation via the Indico system before the beginning of the conference. The upload procedure is the same as that for oral presenters.
