Instructions: Talks and posters


The time allocated for a presentation is 15 minutes with a further 5 minutes allowed for questions. The collaboration of the speakers for respecting the time table is therefore of utmost importance.

It is recommended to prepare the presentation following the guidelines (not the template) shown in:,20,Conclusion

Please notice that you will not be able to use your own PC, so be sure to convert every video or animation to a windows compatible format. Also provide the organization with both the Powerpoint file and the video files. Alternatively, speakers can use Acrobat PDF files.

Please send your Powerpoint presentation by email as soon as ready at: or deliver it at the registration desk when registering. There will be no interruptions during the sessions to load late show presentations.



Posters should be fixed by their authors at arrival on Monday afternoon or Tuesday early morning, and they will be removed on Thursday afternoon by the organization. Authors should collect them at the registration desk during the Thursday afternoon coffee break.

Each author will have one vertical board to fix his poster. Each board will be tagged with the poster code (see program). Material required to fix the poster will be provided by the organization.

Authors are encouraged to design posters as simple as possible, using letters large enough to be legible. Posters need to fit a maximum size of 120 by 85 cm on the board (A0 portrait format is required).

There will be three 90′ Poster Sessions (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, see program for exact times). During each poster session about one third of the posters will be shown by their authors (see program for poster code specifications). Poster sessions are dedicated to poster visits in which it is expected that at least one of the authors of each poster is present near his/her poster to attend the comments and questions of the other participants. In addition, informal visits to the posters will be encouraged specially during the coffee breaks.

In order to promote young scientist, there will be a special prize dedicated to students in recognition of the best three posters. A specially designated jury will be visiting all the student posters in order to select the best ones. Awards and symbolic gifts will be presented to the 3 laureates during the conference dinner.
