Your Presentation


To ensure a smoothly running program, please take note of the following guidelines for successful oral and poster presentations.

Oral presentations

Please save your oral presentation files as either .PPTX or .PDF format. The projector will be a 16:9 format daylight beamer, so it is possible to use widescreen format. We'll be using a Windows 10 PC with PowerPoint. Ensure that the AV person has your presentation at least 20 minutes before your session. We will also be using a clip-on microphone and audio projection.

If you are creating your presentation on Mac/Linux, please ensure it looks as you intended when viewed on a Windows PC. We cannot guarantee that inserted video clips will work, and we discourage their use unless you successfully test it onsite beforehand.

Oral presentations will be 12 minutes + 3 for questions. Session chairs will brutally enforce the timing, so please practice your talk in advance.

Poster presentations

Poster sessions will be held most afternoons. You can mount your poster to the provided numbered board in the venue in the morning, and remove it in the evening after your poster session. It may be useful to bring A4/Letter poster handouts to give to interested persons.

We cannot provide onsite poster printing or photocopying.

Posters should be printed as A0 Portrait (Width x Height = 841 x 1189 mm; 33.1 x 46.8 inches). Please do not print your poster in landscape mode as you will not be able to properly mount it.

All poster sessions will feature finger food and drinks to facilitate good social interaction and lively discussions.

Abstract Guidelines

All oral and poster submissions require an abstract uploaded during Registration. Changes to the abstract can be made up to 1 month before the meeting by contacting the scientific organizers.

Abstracts should be prepared using the following instructions:

  • Page size: A4 (297 mm by 210 mm) – vertical orientation;

  • Margins 25 mm (2.5 cm) all sides ;

  • Title: single-spaced, 14-point size, Times New Roman, bold;

  • Text: single (1.0) spaced, 12-point size, Times New Roman, normal;

Abstracts may contain figures and graphics. The abstracts must contain all authors’ names, affiliation and email address. Acceptable file formats are Microsoft Word (preferred) or PDF. The filename should be in the following format: "lastname_inital.filetype".

Authors must ensure files do not include copyrighted material or other impediments for reproduction. Abstracts will be reviewed and selected by a conference Advisory Committee. Authors will be informed of the acceptance of their contributions and type via email by April 2022. An electronic Book of Abstracts will be available at the meeting and posted on the website .
