Instructions for presenters


Oral presentations

  • The time allotted for presentations is 15–20 min. + discussion (5 min.) as a general rule, but you are recommended to check this with your session organizer.
  • Session facilities include computers and data projectors (Windows). We recommend that you make a PowerPoint presentation.
  • PowerPoint presentations can be sent in advance by email to coste33 @ not later than May 23, 2008 (max. file size sent by email 5 Mb). Bring a copy on USB plug or cd with you. At the symposium presentations can also be submitted to the symposium assistant for the conference room in question in the morning or during the break before your session by USB plug or cd.

Poster presentations

  • Because of the limited space on the poster stands, we ask you to make your poster 74 cm in width and 104 cm in height. Posters will be attached to the stands by pins provided by the organizers.
  • You can use your own organization’s guidelines for the poster layout. Otherwise a poster should include a clearly visible title at the top, followed by author(s) and affiliation information directly underneath. The body text of the poster may start with a short introduction in the top left corner, followed by methods and results, with conclusions in the lower right corner (body text in two or three columns).
  • When choosing font size, please remember that the poster should be readable from a distance of at least one metre.
  • Poster presenters will be responsible for transportation, pinning it up on the appointed stand, and removal of their posters. The posters are to be set up in the conference room on Tuesday, 27th May between 18.00-20.00 or on Wednesday, 28th May between 8.00-8.30.
  • Poster presentations will be organized in one-hour sessions on Thursday and Friday, during which the author(s) must be available for questions and discussion. Tables will be available near the poster stands for displaying handouts of the posters.
