Information for presenters

Oral presentations
Each paper in an oral session will be allotted 35 minutes, including 5 - 10 minutes for discussion, i.e. the talk should last not more than 30 minutes.

Available technology. We will provide a PC with Microsoft Office, Open Office, and Adobe Reader connected to a dataprojector and speakers. We strongly advise you to bring your presentation on a USB flash drive or CD/DVD because we cannot guarantee your laptop will be compatible with our on-site equipment (especially applies to Mac users). Presenters will have 10 minutes before the beginning of every oral session to check their presentations on the equipment. A technical assistant will be present to help.

Handouts. The organizers believe that the audience at a scientific conference deserves (apart from hearing and watching the presentation) some kind of printed material (handout), containing main arguments, examples, the proposed hypothesis and bibliography. The presenters are therefore asked to bring their handouts with them, about 25-30 copies: 1-3 sheets of paper, printed on one or both sides  (about 12 point font - because there may be visually handicapped people present). If more handouts are needed (we cannot predict the audience size in a given section), there will be copy machines available and willing student helpers.

Poster presentations
The poster boards are 70 cm wide and 100 cm high. Posters should be in portrait format. Materials for attaching will be provided.

The main text should be in a large enough font (e.g. 32 pts). The text should be brief and presented in bullet-point or numbered lists as much as possible. Avoid long paragraphs.

Authors of posters are required to be present during their poster session to discuss their posters with interested conference goers.

We recommend to poster presenters to prepare reduced-size copies of their posters (e.g. A4 sheets) to be handed out.
