The length of contributed and invited talks will be of 20 and 30 minutes, respectively, including between 3 to 5 minutes of questions.
The file format for the slides should be in either portable document format (pdf) or Microsoft Power Point 2007 or higher (pptx). The slides should be loaded to the presentation computer at least 15 minutes before the start of the session. However, we strongly recommend to load the files one day in advance in order to avoid software compatibility issues. Presenters may bring their own laptop for the presentations, although the computer connectivity to the projector should be checked one day in advance (or as early as possible regarding Monday 12th presentations).
All talk presenters will have also at their disposition a poster slot. The philosophy is to write certain details in the poster, such as equation deductions. The poster corresponding to a talk should have the same title, author list and mainly the same contents. In addition, posters related to talks should be placed not earlier than 18:00 on Monday 12th and may be left for the rest of the workshop. Please, see further instructions for posters below.
The available panel area will be of 90 x 120 cm portrait, although we recommend A0 size (84.1 x 118.9 cm) for the poster.
Once posters are placed in their panel, may be left for the rest of the workshop. Presentations of the posteronly type should be placed well before the poster session on Monday 12th at 14:00, although we recommend to place the poster before Monday morning coffee break. Posters related to talks should be placed at any time after 18:00 on Monday 12th in order to keep the focus on posteronly presentations on Monday poster session and coffee breaks. We kindly request to all presenters willing to bring a poster to confirm the use of their slot no later than Wednesday 4th of May.
