For oral presentations

Oral presentations cannot exceed 15 minutes (including 3 minutes for Q&A). There will be a timer on the podium as a reminder of where you are in the presentation. Please be advised that presentations exceeding the limit will be cut off by the moderators in the interest of time. Practicing your presentation will prevent this from happening.

Presenters do not have to bring their own computer. There will be a Windows based laptop computer that will be available in the session room. Your presentations (Microsoft Powerpoint only) will be accepted in CDROM or USB Flash Driveform. Computers will be provided to upload presentations and test them in the meeting room. There will also be a technician to help with any technical issues. Participants scheduled for the morning should have their presentations ready the day before, while those scheduled for the afternoon should have theirs ready by lunch. Supported formats include Power Point.

One copy of your presentation should be labeled with the following information CD-ROM or Flash Drive:

  • Concurrent Session Title
  • Date of Presentation
  • Title of Presentation
  • Author’s Name

For poster presentations

In planning a poster presentation it is useful to keep in mind the advantages of a poster over oral presentation. Posters are available for viewing for a full day. Authors and interested viewers have more time for discussion. More posters can be presented in the same time and space than oral presentations reducing the number of simultaneous sessions. There is no first or last presentation on the program. As a general concept, keep in mind that the information should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Planning and experience will make your poster presentation clear, effective and rewarding.

Authors will be asked to be available for discussion during the poster sessions.

Posters will be displayed throughout the duration of the congress (from June 19th to June 21st) on floor of the Conference Venue. We encourage that each poster be formatted to fit a maximum size of standard A0-format (841 x 1189 mm) in portrait orientation. Materials to secure posters to the boards will be provided.

At registration, you will be provided with instructions on your poster location, as well as a number. The number will be on the poster board assigned to your poster.

The title and authors must appear at the top of the poster. We recommend the use of a font size legible from a distance of 2 meters.

Bring some copies of your poster with you for distribution. On-site reproduction will NOT be available.
