Submissions can be categorized into one of the following main topics:
The media check (speakers-ready room) will be located next to the exhibition area. Please keep in mind, that it will not be possible to use your own laptop. All presentations must be submitted as Windows compatible PowerPoint files (.ppt or .pptx files) on PC-readable CDs, DVDs, external disk drives, USB sticks or memory sticks at the media check.
To ensure a smooth running program, speakers will be asked to check their presentation with the staff at least 1 hour prior their presentation. Presenters should plan to be in the meeting room at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the session.
To avoid certain incompatibilities between PowerPoint for Mac and PowerPoint for Windows only images in .jpg or .bmp format should be used in the presentation. If fonts are used in a presentation that are not available in Windows or PowerPoint the varying fonts must be included in the presentation or enclosed as separate files for installation.
Please note that PowerPoint never integrates video files into a presentation but rather only links the videos to it. Therefore every video that is to be shown has to be available on your data medium as a separate file. To make sure that all the videos used in a presentation are copied from your PC to your data medium you may use PowerPoint’s “packaging for CDs”/“pack and go” feature.
If you are planning to show a video during your lecture, we recommend you to save your video file in one of the following video formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Windows Media Video (WMV) or XVID/DIVX (AVI). If other compression formats are used, the respective codes must be enclosed.
Notifications of acceptance will indicate the date and time of each presentation. Data projection will be provided. Please prepare your presentation in PowerPoint and submit it at the media check station at least 1 hour prior to your session. The length of an oral presentation will be seven minutes maximum, plus three minutes for discussion at the end of each session.
Rapid Fire Presentations
Authors of oral presentations which have been classified as rapid fires by the Scientific Program Committee will be invited to present their work in a Rapid Fire Presentation. The length of a rapid fire presentation will be three minutes maximum, and no discussion will be offered.
All necessary technical information for poster presentation will be given together with the acceptance letter. The numbers in the program correspond to the numbers on the poster boards. The poster exhibition is open to all participants during the conference hours. Materials to affix posters to poster boards will be provided.
Videos will be shown in the poster area during the conference hours. The length of a video presentation is seven minutes maximum.
Kindly note, that videos longer than 7 minutes will not be accepted.
