Oral Presentations

Each paper is allocated a time slot of 20 minutes, 17 of which for the presentation, and the remaining 3 for questions and discussion.

It is important to respect the time constraints to allow the presentations to fit within the allocated time periods. The session chairman will enforce these time limits.

Please be at the session room 15 minutes before your session begins, so that you can meet your session chairman and the other speakers in advance.


Poster Presentations

The poster boards are 180 cm x 120 cm (width x height). Poster size must not exceed these dimensions.

Please be aware that a poster is not intended to be a reproduction of your paper in the proceedings.

Poster Preparation:

Poster sessions are a valuable method for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions.
The poster should provide a brief overview of your work. It is important that you display your results clearly to attract people who have an interest in your work and your paper. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save you time to use for discussions and questions.

Please use an appropriate font size for the posters in order that they are readable by the symposium participants 1.5 m away.
The title of your poster should appear at the top in capital letters about 25mm (1 inch) high. Below the title, put the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s).
Use color for highlighting and to make your poster attractive.
Use pictures, diagrams, figures ,etc., rather than only text wherever possible.
The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9mm (3/8 inch) high, and the important points should be in a larger size.

At the Conference:

Prepare a short presentation (several minutes) that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster. Be ready to give it several times as people move through the area.
If there is more than one author attending the conference, all should attend the poster presentation to aid in the presentation and discussion and to provide the main presenter with a chance to rest and to answer questions.

Posters should be put on the board at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the relevant posters session.

The material needed to put up your poster will be supplied by the local organization. Please do not write on the poster boards. There will be members of organization in the room to ensure that facilities are working properly, and to give you any assistance you may need during the poster session.
There will be no audio-visual equipment for poster presentations.

Authors are required to stand by their posters during the whole posters session, and to remove their posters from the boards immediately after the end of the posters session.
