Call for Contributions

The conference accepts oral and poster presentations, typically accompanied by an extended abstract in the conference proceedings. Extended abstracts (5-7 pages) are required for inclusion of the contribution in the conference proceedings. These will go through an additional formal and scientific reviewing process, and will only be included in the proceedings if of good formal quality.

Submissions must follow the conference style and based on the conference paper template:

Instructions for Posters

Posters must be in A1 portrait (841mm height, 594mm wide). Larger posters or landscape versions are not acceptable. Poster presenters are expected to: print the poster at their convenience and bring it to the conference, to be present at the poster during the poster presentation sessions and to provide some A4 or letter printouts of the poster to interested visitors. It is good practice that these A4/letter handouts are readable: if all the text can be read in that small format it will be also comfortably readable in large form on its panel.

A poster must state at least: the title of the contribution, the authors, the e-mail of the corresponding author. No further format requirements are given. It is also recommended that it includes a photo of the author(s) present at the meeting, to make it easier for interested delegates to identify and approach the authors.

Instructions for Presentations

There are strictly 15min plus 5min for discussion. Presenters will be automatically interrupted after 15min, to ensure discussion time and that other presenters have their fair share of time. Slides should be uploaded to the conference computer during breaks and will be made available at presentation room. Detailed hardware and software information on the computers available for presenting at the conference will be later provided here. Presentations are expected to be in standard format (PDF, PPT, PTTX or ODP), running on a Windows 7 machine with the office software (MS Office 2010, OpenOffice 4.1, Acrobat Reader X). Other formats (videos, SWF, 3D viewers, etc) might be possible on request: please contact us well in advance in this case.

Presentations must be checked for technical problems prior to the presentation on the computer in the presentation rooms, during breaks. Each room is equipped with a computer, a projector and a laser pointer. Own computers are not acceptable for presentation.
