Modes of Presentation

Oral Presentations (submission until June 28, only)
Oral sessions will take place in parallel with a duration of 90 minutes.
Please note that oral presentations should last no longer than 10-12 minutes ( including 2 mins for questions).
Please be considerate to your fellow presenters and ensure you will not go over the presentation time limit - question and discussion time will be scheduled for each session.
Contributions submitted as an oral presentation may be accepted as an e-poster due to the limited amount of time slots available for presentation. If your contribution was accepted for an oral presentation, you will be invited to submit an extended paper for the congress proceedings.

E- Poster Presentation:
The abstracts accepted for poster presentation will be presented as E-posters (Electronic poster presentation).
Once your E-posters abstracts are accepted, you will be asked to submit them also as a PPT file (if you haven’t already done so).
Note that these presentations are limited to 6 slides and will be converted to PDF, so please do not include any transitions between slides.
This is an excellent opportunity to attract interest for your research project and engage with fellow delegates throughout the whole conference, E-posters are an excellent way for presenters to focus on delivery of succinct, attention grabbing information in a electronic format.
