The duration of each presentation is 20 minutes including discussion. Authors should limit their lecture presentation to 15 minutes to allow for 5 minutes of questions.
A projector and a computer with MS PowerPoint will be available in every session room for regular presentations.
Presentation Slide Preparation
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST BRING THE PRESENTATION ON A USB MEMORY STICK IN ORDER TO TRANSFER IT TO THE COMPUTER IN THE PRESENTATION ROOM. Files can be uploaded to the computers in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. To avoid software compatibility problems, speakers are advised to put .ppt, .pptx and .pdf versions of their presentation on the USB stick.
Be warned that movies embedded in the presentations are not guaranteed to be played. In addition, avoid using fonts that are not present in the Windows operating systems.
Speakers should arrive in their session room 10 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the Session Chair, and upload your slides if you have not done so previously.
The recommended poster format is portrait A0 (84.1 cm wide x 118.9 cm height). Double-sided adhesive tape and/or pins will be available in the poster area to put the posters on the panels.
Authors are in charge of putting up their poster before the start of the session and of removing it after the session end.
Each panel will be marked with the number of the poster along with your Poster ID as identified in the program and in EDAS. Please place the poster on the correct panel.

Your live zoom session will feature the playback of the presentation videos. These presentations will be played directly from the hosts’ computer, speakers do not need to handle this. As a speaker, you will be added as a panelist role within the zoom platform.
We ask that all speakers join their live session at least 15 minutes early to ensure the set-up is confirmed to your requirements and that there are no issues prior to the meeting beginning.
