Oral Presentions

  1. Presentations can be made either by using overheads or LCD-projectors.
  2. Allotted time for presentations is 20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes discussion. Invited lectures are allotted 15 minutes additional minutes (35 minutes + 10 minutes).
  3. Please contact your session Chairman well in advance of the session.

For PowerPoint presentations using LCD-projectors, PCs are available in all the lecture halls. We recommend that you bring a CD-ROM or an USB pen with PowerPoint presentations for these program versions. In case you prefer to bring your own computer, we cannot guarantee compatibility, and therefore a check the day before your presentation is needed.

Poster Presentions

The title of the poster should be exactly the same as the abstract in the programme, with authors and institutions, to allow easy identification of your poster. Title letters should be large enough to be read from approximately 6 meters away.

Your poster should include an abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions and literature cited. Most data are best represented with figures rather than tables. Text should be easily readable from a distance of 1 meter away. We recommend that you use the following minimum font sizes:

  • Title 84 pt
  • Authors/Addresses 42 pt
  • Section Headings 30 pt
  • Text 24 pt
  • The poster should be printed in A1 size (59.4 cm width and 84 cm height).
