Instructions for authors

Oral presentations 

Oral presentations are in English. Each presentation will have 20 minutes for the talk, followed by 5 minutes for Q&A (25 minutes total). There will be a computer and internet available for the slide presentation. Authors are asked to be in the room a few minutes before the start of their session to upload their presentation files in the local computer.

Poster presentations 

Posters should be size A0 (84,1x 118,9 cm) in portrait format. The poster must be written in English. Authors must go to the registration desk in the morning for indications on where to put the poster. The authors must bring their poster printed. The necessary materials for hanging your poster will be available in the exhibition area.

Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster to allow viewers to easily identify your paper. Indicate the authors’ names and address information in order to allow interested viewers to contact you for more information.

Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5 metres. The type is recommended to be 2.5 cm high. Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colouring and double-spacing all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.

Organize the poster in a way that it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make it easier for a viewer to follow your display.
