Guidelines for Oral Presentations
Prepare Your Presentation
Be considerate to the other speakers and audience by staying within your allocated time.
The allocated time for your presentation includes a discussion and changeover to the next speaker.
This is essential to ensure adequate time for questions and discussion as well as adherence to the schedule.
Please discuss the same material as reported in your abstract submission.
- 30 minutes plenary speaker
- 15 minutes session talks
You are kindly requested to be at the presentation room at least 15 minutes before the session starts.
In each session, there is one person chairing the session. Session chairs will keep an eye on the time to make sure that all speakers have enough time for their presentations and for questions.
Please note that we are unable to provide additional presentation time in case of a delay due to technical issues.
