Oral presentations

Oral presentations are organized in sessions, indicated in the programme together with the time of presentation of each contribution including discussion and change-over. Please note that the duration given to your oral presentation includes 3 minutes for questions and discussion (e.g. a 15-minute talk should be 12 minutes of presentation + 3 minutes of discussion).

The authors are kindly asked to upload their presentations directly in the respective lecture room 30 minutes prior to the time block of the session. An assistant will be available if you need help. Supported software/formats are: PowerPoint, LibreOffice, PDF, VLC Media Player, Adobe Flash Player, Quick Time, Mozilla Firefox.


Poster boards are in portrait format, and authors can make use of the full dimensions of 1200 mm width × 1500 mm height. All the material necessary for attaching the poster to the poster board is available. Two poster boards share a desk to place private notebooks for additional presentations. European-type power sockets are available. The number of each poster paper and of its corresponding poster board is given in the session programme. Authors are kindly asked to put up their posters on Monday, 25. June. Posters will be on diplay throughout the week. Attendance time of each poster is given in the programme.

Oral summaries of posters

There is the possibility to present summaries of poster presentations (1–2 slides) either on Wednesday between 11:00 and 12:30 or during the corresponding oral session in case a gap should occur in the time schedule. Therefore we ask authors of poster papers interested in such presentation to be prepared.

Poster preparation


  • Place the title of your paper clearly at the top of the poster to allow viewers to easily identify your paper. Indicate the authors' names and address information in order to allow interested viewers to contact you for more information.

  • Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5–2.0 metres. The type is recommended to be 2.5 centimetres high. Fore example, use different colours for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.

  • Organize the poster in a way that it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. The poster must cover the same content as the abstract. Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make it easier for a viewer to follow your display.

  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. The success of a poster presentation is contingent on how well you convey the information to an interested audience.
