Information for Presenters


Parallel session talks are 15 minutes (plus 5 minutes for discussion); plenary speakers will be advised of the time reserved for their talk upon invitation.

Laptops with projectors will be available in all rooms. Please prepare your presentation in Adobe Portable Document (PDF) format; Powerpoint (.ppt, .pptx) or OpenDocument Presentation (.odp) formats are also acceptable, but no other formats can be supported.

You must upload your parallel presentation at least one hour prior to the start of your parallel session.

To upload your talk, please log into the conference management system and select "View your papers/sessions", then click on the little Powerpoint-like symbol under "Actions", select the file to upload and click on the button "Upload presentation".

Plenary speakers will be advised separately on how to upload their presentations.


Posters should be in A0 portrait format (841 mm wide, 1189 mm high) or smaller.

They must be affixed to the assigned poster boards (using only the removable adhesive strips provided) before 5:00 pm on Tuesday and removed before noon on Wednesday. Posters left up after this point will be removed and may be collected from the conference office until the end of the conference; any posters left uncollected will be destroyed.  

Poster presenters assigned even-numbered spots should be present to discuss their posters during the first hour of the poster session, and presenters assigned odd-numbered spots during the second hour.

Please note that there are no on-site facilities for printing posters.
