Deadlines and Important Dates

Oral presentation

Each presentation is allocated 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes time for questions.

  • To achieve appropriate timing, organize your slides around the points you intend to make, using no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable number of slides is 14-17.

  • Please come to the room prior to the session to transfer your presentation from USB stick to the presentation computer.

Poster presentation

Please prepare a poster of maximum A0 size (841 mm x 1189 mm, 33.1 in x 46.8 in) in portrait orientation.

Plan the content of your poster such that it conveys the key ideas - it should not include all the details; you can describe them in person to people. Please prepare a short presentation of your work (5-10 min) that you can periodically give throughout the poster session to people that are interested.
