Guidelines for presenters

Plenary presentations

Each presentation takes 30 minutes including questions.

Oral presentations

Each presentation takes 15 minutes including questions. Please consider these time frames, appreciate your colleagues and audience by keeping the schedule.

Short oral presentations (Lightning Talks)

These short type of presentations allow you to present the main aspect of your work in 5 minutes, allowing ~ 1 slide of introduction, 3-4 slides of results and 1 slide of conclusion. There might be short time for questions at the end of the session only. However, this would allow to draw the attention of the colleagues on your work, which you can also present on poster (so please bring a poster as well!), and thus your results can further be discussed during poster sessions.

Technical instructions

Please prepare your presentation in .ppt, .pptx (Microsoft Office PowerPoint 97-2013 format) or .pdf file. Please avoid using videos embedded in your show. If you wish to have a video, please contact the technician in the lecture hall in a break before your presentation (or preferably earlier) to check it in advance.

Please note that using your own notebook is NOT RECOMMENDED.
