1. Poster

Preparing your poster

  • All posters have to be in English.
  • Organise your poster as follows:
    Introduction/Background – Objective/Methods – Results – Conclusions
  • Keep all elements of your poster (pictures, tables, graphics, drawings, photos) simple.
  • Remember that the visitor has to be able to read the text from a distance of up to 1.5 m.
  • Make sure that the poster speaks for itself and does not require extensive explanations.
  • Plan your layout in such a way that the viewer can move her/his eyes from left to right and from top to bottom with appropriate breaks.
  • Try to prepare a poster in one part – if constructed with many parts make sure to know the order.
  • References can be presented in smaller font size, but you will need to restrict the number of references to a maximum of 6.
  • It is also useful to have A4 sheet handouts similar to the poster. This provides a useful ‘take-away’ resource. Please make sure you provide your contact details on the handout.

 

2. One slide – 5 minutes presentation

The ‘One-slide-five-minutes’ session are held as open ‘café’ sessions where the audience is presented with short interesting presentations. We anticipate high interest.

3. Oral presentation

  • All presentations will be held in English.
  • Do not cover too many details.
  • Discuss only the major points of your work, supported by the conclusions drawn from your data to the audience in a limited time.
  • A rushed presentation with too many slides is of no use to the audience.
  • If you exceed your time, the session chairperson will be forced to terminate your presentation.
  • Identify yourself to the session chairperson 10 minutes before the session.
  • Follow the instructions of the chairperson; especially regarding the time for your talk.

  • The chairs are responsible for disposing of time.
  • There will be 5-6 presentations in each session with a time frame, as follows:
    • Presentation (7 minutes)
    • Discussion (3 minutes)

 

4. Workshop

Another traditional form of a session is a Workshop session. Workshops can provide participants with an opportunity to extend their knowledge and strengthen their skills in the area addressed by the workshop. These sessions provide a longer time period for interaction

Please use the following structure in a workshop abstract:
Background / Aim of the Workshop / Methods/ Results and Conclusions
Workshops are allotted 45 minutes time slots. This longer time period allows presenters to delve deeper into the topics presented.
