Preparing Your Presentation

General idea

Every paper is first presented in a short plenary presentation consisting of a 10 minute talk followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion and afterwards in a poster session on the same day.

Authors of poster-only contributions will be provided with the opportunity to raise attention for their poster in a one minute presentation.

Best Poster Award

Every symposium participant will have the opportunity to vote for the best posters presentations, where both quality of design and quality of the explanations can be considered. The authors of the best posters will be awarded a prize to honor their creation and presentation effort.

Presentation of a paper in a plenary session

For the plenary presentation of your paper, you have 15 minutes (strict), including 5 minutes for questions and discussion. So you should prepare a 10 minute talk. The main purpose of this plenary talk is:

  • to introduce yourself and your research group;
  • to sketch the main ideas and contributions of your paper;
  • to motivate the audience to visit your poster later the same day.

The auditorium where the plenary sessions take place is equipped with:

  • A beamer and a projection screen attached to an auditorium computer that all participants should use (PDF reading software and PowerPoint are available)
  • flip chart

In case you will use the beamer, please make sure to upload your file to the auditorium computer at the latest 15 minutes before the session starts.

Short presentation of poster-only contributions

On the day where your poster is scheduled, you will have the opportunity to make a presentation of one minute (strict) at the end of a plenary session, in which you may introduce yourself and present the main features of your contribution. You are not required to do this.

You can use a single slide for your presentation. In that case, please make sure to upload your file to the auditorium computer at the latest 15 minutes before the session starts.

Presentation of your poster

The poster sessions, taking place in the auditorium, will allow you to give a more detailed description of your contribution and are meant for discussions in smaller groups.

Each regular plenary session will be followed by a poster session. Please bring your poster with you before the plenary session after which it will be presented. Hang it up, say 20 minutes before the start of that plenary session.

Poster guidelines:

  • One poster stand per contribution;
  • Maximum size 80cm by 110cm in portrait orientation (N.B.: this is slightly smaller than A0-format);
  • The posters will be attached with adhesive tape that will be present at the venue; so consider having a sufficient margin.
