• Presentation file upload

    Lecturers (Invited, oral, and intensive oral presentations) are requested to upload the file of their slides of presentation (Powerpoint or PDF) directly at the conference secretary’s office at least 2 hours before the session, i.e. without waiting for the break before the session, and surely not at the beginning of their session.


    Title of the presentation: #abstract-Number_Main-Author-Name


  • Lecture duration

    • Invited lecture is 30 minutes + 10 minutes of discussion.
    • Oral presentation is 15 minutes + 5 minutes of discussion.
    • Intensive oral presentation is 10 minutes with a maximum of 5 slides.
    • Chairmen will receive strict instructions in order to keep the time allocated to each presentation; they can interrupt the lecture if necessary.
  • Posters and intensive oral presentations

    All posters will be displayed during the full conference.  Each day of the conference devoted sessions are scheduled for discussion in front of the posters.


    To valorize these poster sessions even more, the organizers have planned a set of intensive-oral sessions for the promotion of the posters.


    You will thus be invited to present your paper at one of these intensive oral sessions. Therefore, poster contributors are requested to provide us with a PDF or PowerPoint file of maximum five slides.

  • Poster guidelines

    1. Each author will have a usable area that is approximately 2010 millimeters height x 831 millimeters width (Portrait Format). The posters are free standing and with a white backgound.
    2. Material can be mounted to the poster with Blu Tack which will be provided at the conference. Velcro is also allowed, but authors must provide their own Velcro fasteners.
    3. Authors should provide a poster title using letters large enough to be legible at ~ 3 m (10 feet). The title will be displayed at the top of the mounting board and will contain the authors' names and affiliations.
    4. A short abstract (35-50 words) with lettering readable from ~ 1.8 m (6 feet) should be prominently displayed near the top of the board, beneath the title.
    5. The body of the poster paper should consist of several small sections, arranged to guide the viewer through an introduction, results, and finally conclusions and references. The poster must be self-guiding because many conference attendees will read your poster at times other than the normal session.
    6. Lettering size is extremely important. Lettering must be clearly readable from a distance of 3 m (6 feet), as clusters of people will surround the poster boards during the session. We recommend nothing smaller than 14-point bold lettering be used anywhere on the poster. It is better to use 18 to 24 point letters for your main text. The use of color to organize sections of the paper is effective. Color graphs, and/or colored borders around black and white figures can be especially effective in making your poster easy to read. You need to be creative and present only clear, readable data tables and graphs.
    7. Under no circumstances should you simply put your typewritten paper on the poster board. Hand-written pages are similarly unacceptable.
    8. Limit posters to significant data, details, graphs, and key experimental results that help   explain the most important points of your work. Don't try to get everything in the written paper on the poster, just the main points. Photographs can also be effective, but should be large enough to be easily viewed and address key points.
    9. Some authors have found that it helps to attach a single bound copy of their complete paper to the poster for reference. If you do this, please inform us in advance and be sure to use a strong cord and attach it firmly to the poster to prevent loss.
    10. If possible, please include photographs 7.5 x 12.5 cm, (3 x 5 inch) of the principal presenter and co-authors near the top of the poster. This allows the audience to recognize the authors of the poster papers.


    Thank you for taking the time to read these guidelines. Following them will enhance your presentation, and make it more likely that the audience will understand your presentation and pay attention to your work.



    Please notice that poster installation set-up will start on Monday June 19th as of 2pm.

    Precisions, details and practical instructions will be available in the conference secretary'office.

    Please contact us at your arrival.
