Presentation Guidelines Poster Presentations 

Maximum metric paper size: DIN A0 (84 cm × 119 cm, or, 33.1 × 46.8 inches). 

Display in portrait orientation (height greater than width). You may print your poster in other (small) page sizes and assemble your poster as you wish on the poster boards that we will provide. Please, take into account the size of your fonts and the level of magnification. 

There are a number of copy shops close to the conference venue, but we strongly recommend to print your posters in advance.

Presenters will be responsible for mounting and removing their own posters. Posters can be set at lunchtime on Wednesday and have to be removed – at the latest – by lunchtime the day after. The Organising Committee will not be responsible for posters that are not removed by this time. 

You’ll have the opportunity to present your poster during a 5’ pitch presentation in the main conference room on Wednesday 14h30. At least one author of each poster must be available during the timetabled poster sessions. Maximise the opportunities to talk to delegates about your work by being present at your designated poster board during breaks on Wednesday.

 

Spoken Presentations and Workshops 

Spoken presentations: maximum 20 minutes + 7 minutes for discussion + 3-minute break for switching between presenters.  Meet your chair and technical assistant 10-15 minutes before the start of your session and carry out a technical check. The latter can be done as well on Tuesday March 26 between 17h and 20h as well. We recommend to bring your personal laptop and VGA/HDMI connector. In case that is not possible, another computer will be foreseen. If you prefer to use our computer, please bring a copy of your presentation on a USB/flash drive (presenters with their own laptop are advised to bring such a copy as well as back-up). 

If you have handouts, please distribute them before your talk. If something goes wrong with the equipment during your talk, please ask the technical assistant to fix it. For audio playback a standard mini-jack connected to an amplifier and speakers will be available. 

WiFi is available, but, we strongly advise to avoid depending on an Internet connection for your presentation.
