♦ Each oral presentation has been allocated a time slot of 10 minutes, including questions and handovers. This means that your speech must be at most 07-08 minutes long in order to allow questions and discussion after the presentation. The session chairs have been instructed to terminate overrunning presentations in order to ensure that every presenter has the same amount of time. If you exceed your time, you risk missing the chance for questions or even completing your presentation. So, please practice the timing in advance!
♦ Make sure that your slides are readable, i.e., when preparing your presentation, use sufficient large font sizes (at least 18-20 pt), and avoid color combinations with poor contrast. Pay special attention to diagrams and graphics so that they appear readable. Presentations should be either in Microsoft PowerPoint™ (2003 or 2007) or Adobe PDF™ format. Presenters should arrive in the session room at the latest 15 minutes before the start of the session in order to set up their presentation, meet the volunteers, and to provide a short biography (3-5 lines) for the introduction of the speaker. Please stay in the session from start to end, in case the attendees would like to discuss with you individually after the session.
