Oral and poster presentations
Oral and poster presentation
During the conference, you will either hold an oral or poster/blitz presentation.
The Blitz presentation
A series of 60 seconds presentations immediately prior to your poster session. Keep in mind that your Blitz presentation should be a convincing and fun teaser, not a complete presentation of your project. This is a great oppertunity to be creative! Blitz presentations should be in 16:9 format (widescreen) and saved as .pptx.
We will be very strict on the time limit and therefore recommend that you prepare only TWO slides in PowerPoint and minimize the use of animations.
We will collect all presentations and run them from our computer. It will not be an option to use your own laptop. The first slide must include your name and affiliation.
Blitz presentations need to be uploaded here by Friday 09 September.
Due to space restrictions, all posters need to be in A0 in portrait format (i.e. 841 mm wide × 1189 mm high). You need to print and bring your poster to the conference.
Upon arrival at the conference venue, you will be allotted a number for your poster. You should mount your poster at the poster board with the corresponding number. Your poster should be mounted until the end of the conference.
Each speaker will have 10-12 minutes to present their work, and 3-5 minutes for questions from the audience. Please keep in mind that a large part of the audience will not be familiar with your particular field of study.
We will collect all presentations and run them from our computer. It will not be an option to use your own laptop. The file should be in 16:9 format (widescreen) and saved in .pptx (Please name your file as follows: surname_name_session.pptx).
Oral presentations need to be uploaded here by Friday 16 September.
Those of you selected to give an oral presentation will be contacted directly by the organizing committee. Information about guidelines for both the oral and poster presentations will be sent in a separate email by 26th August, after the organizing committee has reviewed all abstracts.
