Oral Presentations

For each oral presentation, there will be a 15 min time slot (12 min for the presentation + 3 min for discussion). Please make sure your presentation stays within the given time frame!

Keynote talks comprise 30 min.

The conference room is equipped with a beamer and a Windows computer to allow PowerPoint Presentations. It will not be possible to use your own computer. We provide Windows 7 with Office Version 2013. A good alternative is to use pdf-format for your presentation.

There will be no Macintosh computer. Please make sure that your presentation can run on a Windows computer


Please hand over your presentation on a USB memory stick to the staff at our IT office upon arrival. It will be possible to check the presentation on correct functioning and display of all slides at the IT office. To minimize potential incompatibilities between software versions, we recommend limited use of animation, use of common Windows fonts for text and symbol fonts for equations. At the start of the conference on Wednesday, the registration will be open from 09:30 AM onwards. In case your talk is scheduled for the first sessions on Wednesday afternoon, please take extra care to arrive in time. All the other presentations need to be handed over to the conference IT staff no later than the afternoon preceding the day the presentation is scheduled! We ask that you arrive in your session room at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session time. This will allow time for you to meet and liaise with your chair person and to become familiar with the equipment in your session room.


Poster sessions are an important part of this conference. We have saved an attractive time window for the poster sessions.
