Instructions for oral presentations

Please read the information carefully and follow the recommendations.

Before your talk:
* Check the programme for the time and location of your session.
* Please be at your session room at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the session, and contact the session chair, which should be near the stage/lectern, * Write a short bio and give this bio to the session chair. He/she will introduce you before starting your presentation.
* The authors should use their own laptops for the projector for their presentations. If you attend to the conference without laptop, let us know in advance on order to give you some support.
* Use of standard True Type fonts is suggested for PowerPoint presentations. It is very strongly advised to embed all your fonts into your presentation, if you are using any special font or plug-in such as MathType.

During your talk:
Presenter will have approximately 15 minutes for presentation and about 5 minutes of questions from the audience. The chair of each session will watch time, give warnings as the time limit is approached, and bring presentations to a halt as necessary.

Organization of contents:
Make sure each of your key points are easy to explain with aid of the material on your slides. Do not read directly from the slide during your presentation.
Organize your slides around the points you intend to make, using no more than one slide per minute.

The following guidelines have been proved effective in improving presentations:
* Use landscape format for best display results.
* Keep the slides simple and easy to read. Plan to cover at most 6 points per slide, covered by 6-12 spoken sentences.
* Use bullets at beginning of lines to separate ideas and avoid complete sentences.
* Be consistent in grammatical construction of lists; for example, use all-verbs or use all-nouns phrases.
* If you are using PowerPoint™, use functions that allow you to build information, adding bullet by bullet, on a slide, to keep the audience from reading ahead.

Instructions for Poster Presentations

Please read the information carefully and follow the recommendations.

Size and layout: It is advised to prepare a single poster and not a series of Power Point slides, and the poster should be one piece and not made up of separate pieces of paper.

Each poster is assigned a 100 cm in horizontal by 140 cm in vertical space and your poster must fit in it. However A0 portrait (84 cm x 110 cm) format is recommended. The conference committee will provide fixings (tack pins, adhesive tape and Velcro coins). Authors are responsible for printing and mounting their posters.

Presentation: Plan to arrive before the session scheduled start so that your poster is up at the beginning of the session. At least one author must be present during the entire designated period for that session. Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster throughout the session.

Organization of contents: Your poster should cover the key points of your work and provide a brief overview of it. The poster should be designed to attract attention and initiate discussion. It needs to be as simple and clear as possible with an emphasis on graphics rather than text. It should not attempt to include all the details. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. There will not be any summaries given at the beginning of the poster sessions.

Format: It is strongly recommended that the posters be formatted according to the following recommendations:
* The heading should list: title, author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). It should be in CAPITAL bold face type and readable from a distance of 2 m (this means lettering at least 25 mm high).
* The font size for the headings of the abstract, introduction, results, conclusions, references, and any other sections, and the text and the captions for figures and graphs should be readable from a distance of 1 m.
* The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right. Use arrows to lead your viewer through the poster. Use color for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive.
* Try to state your main result in in a few lines, in lettering about 15 mm high.
