Author Guidelines

Accepted papers can be presented either orally or as posters.

– Oral Presentation

The length of oral presentations can be 15 minutes, depending on the acceptance type and each session has a chair. It is expected that the presenter is ready in the room before the session begins. All technical session rooms are equipped with a video projector and a computer running Microsoft Windows with Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader. you may bring it in a USB drive (also recommended as a backup precaution). Using your own laptop or smart device, as long as it is enabled with VGA output connection is possible but not recommended. The presenter should prepare a set of slides that clearly illustrate the main points of her/his paper, and make sure the presentation fits well within the assigned time slot, leaving at least 5 minutes for a p eriod of question-answering. Should sound be required, the presenter is kindly requested to contact the conference secretariat at least 3 weeks in advance in order to ensure proper arrangements. It may be useful to follow presentation best practices

– Poster Presentation

Posters will have a specific session for being presented to a larger audience, during which authors must be next to their poster to answer questions. The poster must not exceed the A0 (84 cm X 118 cm) portrait format. Please use an appropriate font size for the posters so that they are readable by the participants from 1.5 meter away. The poster message should be clear and understandable even without oral explanation. Please assure the poster is placed on the board before the beginning of the poster session. Authors are required to stand by their posters during the whole poster session, during which the participation certificates will be distributed. The poster must be printed beforehand and brought along to the conference by the author. Alternatively, the conference may provide a printing and transportation service but you must contact the secretariat at least one month ahead before the conference dates, inquiring about costs and deadlines. Please note that it is not acceptable to print A4 sheets and hang them at the poster board.
