Oral Presentations

All presenting authors are kindly required to check out their own oral presentation schedule in the program.

Different time slots have been arranged for Invited Speakers and selected Symposia Oral Presentations. Invited speakers will have slots of 45 minutes including questions from the audience, whereas the duration of a Symposia is 105 minutes; duration of each speech is determined by the number of the speakers (3, 4 or 5).

Speakers must arrive to their session room 10 minutes PRIOR TO the start of their session to report to the chairperson in order to confirm their attendance and presentation.

A LCD projector and computer (Windows, MS PowerPoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available for presentation. To avoid software compatibility problems, speakers are advised to EMBED ALL FONTS in their PowerPoint file and BRING A BACKUP PDF-VERSION OF THEIR PRESENTATION. 


 It will not be allowed to hook up personal laptop.

It is requested to the speakers to send presentations to the organizing secretariat – – in order to be uploaded to the slide center before the congress. 

General Tips:

Limit the number of words per visual to no more than 20.

Leave space, at least the height of a capital letter, between lines of text.

All fonts, including that on graphs, should be 18 point or larger.

Graphs and charts should have bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with the background.
