Oral Presentation Guidelines

Please read the following guidelines carefully when preparing your presentation.

    The session details have been sent to each presenting author via e-mail and are also available in the detailed programme on the website.

    Please find the schedule of talk & discussion depending on your allocated time below. Kindly note that following your allotted time is necessary to maintain the conference schedule. Thank you for respecting your limited time.

    30 minutes = 25 min. for a presentation + 5 min. for Q&A
    25 minutes = 20 min. for a presentation + 5 min. for Q&A
    15 minutes = 12 min. for a presentation + 3 min. for Q&A
    10 minutes = 8 min. for a presentation + 2 min. for Q&A


    All oral presentations must be accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation. Presenters are fully responsible for the presentation content (order, graphics, etc.). Presentations must be delivered in English.

    To prepare your presentation, please use an up-to-date version of Microsoft PowerPoint (but older versions are also supported). The screens’ aspect ratio will be 16:9. Please avoid using Apple Keynote and Prezi presentations. The on-site computers will handle Windows versions of PowerPoint only. Please make sure your presentation is in a compatible format as indicated below.

    Supported Files

    PPTX/PDF (200 MB maximum)

    When saving your final presentation to a USB stick, make sure that you include your video or multimedia files (if any). Kindly note that the presentation computers will not have internet access, so any external content should be embedded directly in the presentation.

    You can download the presentation template with the conference logo.


      Your presentation needs to be handed over to the personnel in the SPEAKERS’ PREVIEW ROOM on a USB flash disk as soon as possible, but no later than TWO HOURS BEFORE the start of your session.

      Presentations for an early morning session should be handed over the evening before (if possible).

      The IT personnel will upload your presentation and you will be able to check that the presentation is operating correctly.

      Please note that it is not possible to present from your laptop in the lecture room. All presentations must be uploaded in the Speakers’ Preview Room.


      Is located in room 248.

      In the lecture room, you will be assisted by a hall assistant who can show you how to operate your presentation, remote control, pointer, etc. Please come to the lecture room shortly before the session starts and be ready when it is your turn to present to minimise wasted time. You should be in the lecture room prior to your presentation time in case there are last-minute changes during the session (e.g. cancelled presentation before your talk).
