More detailed information
Instructions for Oral Presentations
  • Each oral presentation will be 15 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes of discussion. The chairs of the sessions will be instructed to adhere strictly to the program. Speakers will not be allowed to exceed their allotted time for presentation, so make sure that you are able to stay within the 15 minutes time limit.
  • All presentation rooms will be equipped with a PC and corresponding software (Office XP) for PowerPoint slides. It is not allowed to use your own laptop.
  • Please bring your presentation on CD-ROM or memory stick. Use only standard fonts in the preparation of your PowerPoint slides. Some of the oral presentations will be given in large lecture halls (seating up to 700 people), so a font size of at least 20 pt will be necessary to enable proper visualization of your presentation for a large audience.
  • Please load your presentation file onto a computer in the speaker preparation room 1 day in advance of your session. We highly recommend that you take advantage of one of the early file loading opportunities to check your presentation or to make last minute changes. Having the presentation files loaded in advance will help to ensure that the sessions run on schedule without delays.
  • More details on the opening hours of the Speakers Ready Room, further practical information and details on the final technical program will follow in due time.
Instructions for Poster Presentations
We would like to emphasize the importance of poster presentations during the congress. Posters and informal poster discussions are one of the best and most stimulating ways of communicating science. The poster area is integrated in the Exhibition and Catering area and poster sessions are scheduled on Monday and Wednesday also during the lunch and coffee breaks. This will certainly ensure a good turnout.
