Presentation format

Electronic poster

The presentation screen is a computer running Windows10 with PowerPoint (Office 2016) and Adobe Reader installed. Your poster should be in .ppt, .pptx, or .pdf format. Prepare a single slide for presentation in widescreen (16:9) format, as if you printed your poster out. The resolution of the screen is full HD: 1920*1080.

Prepare a single slide for presentation in widescreen (16:9) format, as if you printed your poster out.

If you include animations or videos in your poster, we recommend incorporating them into a single slide with the text. Your poster will be presented on a touchscreen, so you could start or stop your animations “clicking” on them (or you can loop your movies). You may prepare additional slides with further data for interested audience, but we strongly recommend inserting the most important findings of the study in a single slide.

Do NOT include audio elements in the presentation.

You can bring your poster on a USB stick or access it online.

Do not print your poster.

Regular poster

We recommend preparing landscape posters.

The size of the poster boards is 2 m x 1 m. You can put up your poster in the morning on the day of your presentation. It has to be removed after the poster session.

Talks

We recommend to prepare widescreen (16:9) slides in HD resolution (1920x1080 pixels).

A PC laptop with PowerPoint will be available for presentation, but you should also be able to connect your own computer to the projector via HDMI or VGA cables. Please bring your own converter to any other connectors (such as USB-C, DisplayPort, MiniDisplayPort, DVI).

We recommend to have a backup USB stick with your presentation in .ppt or .pptx format in case of emergency.

Timing

Each paper presentation will be 15-minutes long with additional 5-minute question time.

Each regular symposium talk will be 15-minutes long with 5-minute question time. There will be an additional 10-minute period for general discussion at the end of the symposium session.
