Oral Presentations

Time at disposal for Oral Presentations will be 20 minutes. 15 minutes for the presentation itself and 5 minutes for questions from the audience. Invited Lecturers and SIE Distinguished Lecturers will have slots of 40 minutes including questions. Italian Language will be the official language for the conference: English language is allowed for authors who do not speak Italian language. The language of the presentations (the slides) is English.
A LCD projector and a PC (Windows, MS PowerPoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in every session room for presentations.

Preparation of Visuals:

  • PLEASE NOTE THAT SPEAKERS MUST EITHER BRING A PENDRIVE CONTAINING THEIR PRESENTATION FILE OR THEIR OWN LAPTOP COMPUTER WITH THE APPROPRIATE PRESENTATION SOFTWARE LOADED.
    Files can be uploaded to the local PCs in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. 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.
  • Speakers must arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the chair persons. A technician will be at your disposal before each Session begins.

Poster Presentations

Poster text should be in English.
It is essential that posters are put up in the right assigned place so that they can be easily reached by the interested attendees. The assigned placement of each poster will be marked on the panel where the poster will be presented with the number of the specific poster according to the code reported in the conference program.
The posters must remain attached during the entire conference. Therefore, they should be put up on Wednesday afternoon and removed at the end of the conference.

The size of the panel space that is available to each poster is
120cm (high) x 90cm (wide)

The format of the poster panel is portrait (height > width). Authors are free to choose a single poster (or many smaller posters) that fit on the given panel size.
Posters will be attached to the panel with adhesive tape which will already be available on the panel. If more tape is needed, the poster area assistant can be contacted.
