Oral Presentations:

Oral presentations will be given in multiple sessions. In order to maximize the number of presentations each participant could attend. We plan 5 parallel sessions. Each speaker will have a total of 20 min to present their work. The presentation (PowerPoint format) should be provided to the local organizers at least 30 minutes before the session starts.


Poster Presentations:

About 60% of all contributions will be posters (size A0, portrait format), to be presented within the poster sessions (up to 1.5 hours each). The posters should be put on the stands in the morning and removed by the end of the day. The posters will be evaluated by the International Scientific Committee and the best poster awards will be given at the closing ceremony.


All papers will be reviewed by the Programming Committee and a very limited number of papers will be moved from regular submission to keynote paper.
