3 – 6 July Ghent, Belgium

How to prepare your talk

Every accepted paper or poster abstract will be presented twice: once in a plenary session and once in a discussion session. Detailed instructions on how to prepare for these two presentations are available below.

Instructions for presenting your paper

In the plenary session where your paper is scheduled, you are expected to give a ten minute presentation. Given the large number of contributions this year, the timing will be followed strictly. We therefore recommend to prepare a nine minute presentation instead. The main purpose of this plenary presentation is not to present your results in detail, but rather

In case you want to use slides, please make sure to upload your file to the auditorium computer well before the start of the plenary session.

In the discussion session that follows your plenary session, you will be expected to present your contribution in much more detail, using a poster and/or a flipchart. We will provide the flipchart and a poster stand (width 100cm, height 200cm, so A0 format or smaller easily fits). Although you are free to only use the flipchart, we strongly recommend that you also bring a poster to this discussion session. It will allow people to read your work while you are discussing with someone else, and it will generally make it much easier to discuss your work in detail. Furthermore, it also automatically makes you eligible for the poster prize competition, provided that you upload a pdf of your poster to EasyChair before 3 July. In case you will use a poster, please bring it with you before the plenary session where your paper will be presented. Hang it up on the poster stand, say, 20 minutes before the start of that plenary session.

Instructions for presenting your poster abstract

In the plenary session where your poster abstract is scheduled, you are expected to give a one minute presentation, in which you can introduce yourself and briefly present the main features of your contribution. Given the large number of contributions this year, the timing will be followed strictly. If you like, you can use a single slide for this one minute presentation. In that case, please make sure to upload your file to the auditorium computer well before the start of the plenary session.

In the discussion session that follows your plenary session, you are expected to present your contribution in more detail, using a poster and a flipchart. We will provide the flipchart and a poster stand (width 100cm, height 200cm, so A0 format or smaller easily fits). Please bring your poster with you before the plenary session after which it will be presented. Hang it up on the poster stand, say, 20 minutes before the start of that plenary session. In order to be eligible for the poster prize competition, you should also upload a pdf of your poster to EasyChair, before 3 July.
