Information for presenters
Authors are allocated 15 minutes, ten plus five for questions. Please keep to the time limit to ensure all presenters receive equal opportunity.
Room allocation, running order and Chairperson can be found in the conference programme available soon. Please note the running order is subject to change in case of any absences or if papers are better suited in a different order.
Using your own laptop is not a problem but can delay proceedings. We will request that you present last to avoid eating into the session time. Note, this could cut your own presentation time short.
Presentations will not be requested prior to the conference, please bring a copy with you on a USB stick for transferring onto the laptop already set up in the room.
Rooms will be open 30 minutes before each session for you to load (and run through) slides.
Clearly labelled presentations should be placed into a pre-named folder e.g. Thursday April 2nd am/pm on the desk top, a team member will be available to offer assistance if needed. Please be in the room and prepared at least five minutes before the session is due to start.
Each poster should be on view up to and including the last break on the last day of the event. A guided poster session will take place on the afternoon of April 2nd, please make yourself available for a brief discussion of your research with other members of the delegation and scientific committee.
The mounting board for each poster is 6′ high x 3′ wide (portrait) and can accommodate one A0 poster each side.
Poster boards will be numbered. Your poster number will be the number beside your title in the printed programme available soon. Velcro fastenings will be provided.
