Presentation guidelines

Lecture Presentations

The time allotted to each lecture presentation is 18 minutes. You will have 15 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for questions from the audience. A projector & laptop computer will be available in every session room for regular presentations.

An onsite dedicated room (Salon Dickens) will be available for Authors to upload their slide presentations onto their allocated session’s computer. Several stations will be available to test and then upload the file. Speakers are asked to visit this room in advance of their session and presentation time to avoid any last minute problems. This room will be open on all days during the conference. Please, notice that file uploads will be closed one hour before the session starts. Presenters will be allowed to use their own computer for their presentation but setup time will be deducted from the 18 minutes allotted for the presentation. As a measure of precaution, we recommend you to save multiple copies of your presentation on distinct devices. To avoid software compatibility problems (MS PowerPoint), speakers are advised to embed all fonts in their PowerPoint file and bring a backup PDF-version of their presentation.

Speakers should arrive to their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the START of the session to report to the chairperson. A proctor will also be available in case you need technical assistance.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions will be hosted in the Salle de Bal est. This room will be open from 8:30 am to noon to allow presenters to install their posters. Each board will be numbered with the corresponding paper ID. Please, look for your poster number in the conference program. The format of the poster panel is landscape and the dimensions are 4 ft. (high) x 8 ft. (wide) (120 cm high by 240 cm wide). Unfortunately, this cannot be modified. Your posters will be attached to the panel with push pins, which will be available on the panel. If you need more pins, please contact the poster area proctor. After the session is finished and you have removed your poster, please leave the pins on the board.

At least one author is expected to stand by the poster for the duration of the poster session. It is essential that at least one of the session chairs visits your poster to verify that you attended and presented your work.
