Oral presentations

The presentations can be made either by using overheads, slides or LCD-projectors.

The allotted time for presentations is 20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion. Keynote lectures are allotted 15 additional minutes (35 minutes + 10 minutes).

For PowerPoint presentations we request that you bring a CD-ROM with the presentation. It should be compatible with Microsoft's Windows 2000 and Office 2000. Alternatively, you could email it in advance to the Congress secretariat. Use of your own personal computer will not be permitted.

Poster presentations

Tips for preparing posters:

  • The maximum poster size is 1m20 height by 0.9 m width.
  • You will be required to supply an electronic copy of your poster in advance. The deadline for poster submission is September 15th 2004. You should send a ppt, pdf or equivalent file via your personal web account.
  • The title of the poster should be exactly the same as the abstract in the programme, with authors and institutions, to allow easy identification of your poster. Title letters should be large enough to be read from approximately 6 metres away.
  • Your poster should include an abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions and literature cited. Most data are best represented with figures rather than tables. Text should be easily readable from a distance of 1 meter away. We recommend that you use the following MINIMUM font sizes:
    Title 84 pt
    Authors/addresses 42 pt
    Section Headings 30 pt
    Text 24 pt

Posters will be displayed during poster session. A reception for Poster Session will be held on Wednesday evening, October 13 2004. Authors are expected to be beside their posters during their assigned poster session reception. During poster session some refreshments will be provided. In addition, poster area will be accessible from 09.00-18:00 on Thursday, October 14, and to 14.00 on Friday, October 15.
