Modes of Presentation

The program committee will schedule all oral and poster sessions for presentation.

Oral Sessions

The presentation times for oral sessions are as follows: contributed presentations are 15 minutes.

Please note: You must provide your presentation for preloading. Please submit your presentation (in English, copy-edited and proofread) via email to, no later than 7 business days before the events starts.

If for any reason, you are unable to submit your presentation in advance of the Conference, then you can preload your presentation to a laptop via registration desk area when you arrive at the Conference, you must preload this at least two hours before you are due to present.


Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are scheduled to provide an opportunity for selected papers to be presented in greater visual detail and should facilitate vivid discussions with attendees. For poster sessions, authors are provided with 6 ft high x 4 ft wide (183cm x128cm) bulletin boards on which to display their papers, along with a sign indicating their paper numbers, and push–pins or adhesive tape. Presenters should display paper titles, lists of authors and author affiliations on their posters. Authors must remain in the vicinity of their bulletin boards for the duration of the session (60–90 minutes) to answer questions. Note that poster presenters are not supplied with any audiovisual equipment. Those requiring such equipment should refrain from requesting the poster only or poster preferred formats on the submission form.


Guidelines for Poster Presentations

If you are unfamiliar with poster reception, the following may be useful:

  • We kindly ask Poster presenters to stand at or near by their poster for at least the first 30 minutes of the poster reception. This will allow you the opportunity to talk with delegates about your poster and answer questions regarding your work.
  • When you are not there, leave a note saying when you plan to return. You may also want to provide a mobile phone number or business cards so another delegate can arrange to meet you at a specific time.
  • There is no need to have a presentation but be prepared to answer questions and discuss your material with interested delegates.
  • You may use a computer if you wish to provide a live demonstration as part of your poster. Please bring your own laptop with well-charged batteries, as power supply may not be available.
