Advice for Speakers

Please prepare your presentation as a PowerPoint for Windows® file. To be on the safe side, check the Corrigenda distributed with the hardcopy of the program and the "Program Changes Board" in the foyer of the lecture hall to find out if there are any changes to the program that might relate to your presentation. Make sure to bring your presentation to the media room at least 30 minutes before your session starts. Files for early morning presentations should ideally be handed in the day before. Please make sure to arrive at your presentation room prior to the start of the session and to introduce yourself to the chair.

Please keep strictly to the scheduled presentation time, which includes the time for discussion (3 minutes for a time slot of 15 minutes and 5 minutes for time slots of 20 minutes or longer). The session chairs are advised to start the sessions in time and to terminate the lectures on schedule to avoid any overrun. A countdown timer will be automatically integrated in your presentation displaying the speaking time left. 


Advice for Scientific Poster Presenters

Posters should be prepared in English. The format should not exceed DIN A0 (84.1 cm width x 118.9 cm height; portrait format), and the posters should not be laminated. Mounting materials will be provided. Your poster should be presented on the assigned poster board during the whole conference. Additionally, there will be a special poster session (Thursday, 26th April 2018, 13:30-15:30) during which one of the authors should be personally present at the poster. Poster presenters are encouraged to distribute one-page handouts.
