Oral presentations of Invited and Contributed papers will be programmed in 20 minute timeslots starting at :00, :20 and :40 minutes past the hour. Presenters should plan 15 minutes for the presentation to be followed by 3 minutes for questions then 2 minutes for change-over to the next presenter and for delegates to move between rooms. Session chairs have the responsibility to ensure the session stays on time, and will enforce this timing. The time schedule will be followed by a small digital count-down clock, which will be visible in the corner of the screen to provide guidance during each presentation.

Authors should bring their presentations (in PowerPoint or PDF format) on a USB stick or CD/DVD-ROM, and must upload them to the computer in the Congress Secretariat Room well before, preferably one day before their scheduled presentation. Congress staff will assist authors with loading of the presentation and will transfer the presentation files to the computers in the presentation rooms.

Authors must go to their allocated meeting room 15 minutes before the session start time (during coffee breaks and lunch time) to identify themselves to the session chair and to check the presentation is ready. All presentations in the session will occur at the times published in the final program.

Each meeting room will be equipped with a PC computer running Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader, a projector and screen, lectern, microphone and laser pointer. Any additional equipment, including systems for audio playback, is considered special equipment, which must be ordered in advance. The special equipments will be fulfilled if possible, but are not guaranteed. In this case please see your chairperson or technicians for assistance, but in any case do not disconnect the meeting room computer.

Staff will be available to assist with loading of the presentation in the Congress Secretariat Room on Wednesday 14.00 – 19.30, Thursday and Friday 07.30 – 17.00.
