Presentations must be provided either as a Microsoft PowerPoint (*.ppt, *.pptx) or PDF file. Please deliver your presentation file (or folder, also including the videos) to the registration desk on the day before your talk.

Each presenter will be given 15 minutes for their talks plus an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Please follow this time limit strictly if you do not want to be interrupted by the session’s convenor.


Posters should be arranged in portrait format no larger than A0 (841 x 1189 mm), and displayed for the duration of the conference.

There will be a poster session on each of the 2 conference days. Presenters are encouraged to be present in the vicinity during coffee breaks.
