For each oral presentation, there will be a 20 min time slot (15 min for the presentation + 5 min for discussion). The session organizers of each session will be asked to ensure that presentations keep strictly to time in order to allow sufficient time for discussion.
A Microsoft Windows computer will be used to project the PowerPoint presentations. It will not be possible to use your own laptop. The computer will be equipped with Windows 10 and Office Version 2010.
As there will be no Macintosh computer please make sure that your PowerPoint presentation can run on a Microsoft Windows computer.
Please hand over your PowerPoint presentation on a USB memory stick to the staff at our ISBCA Office. It will be possible to check the presentation for correct functioning and display of all slides at the symposium office. To minimise potential incompatibilities between software versions, we recommend limited use of animation, use of common Windows fonts for text and symbol fonts for equations.
Registration will start on Sunday at 5 pm. Speakers who have a talk on Monday should make sure that their presentation is uploaded on Sunday.
All the other presentations need to be handed over to the staff at the symposium office no later than the afternoon preceding the day the presentation is scheduled!
We ask that you arrive in your session room at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session time. This will allow time for you to meet and liaise with your session organiser and to become familiar with the equipment in the conference room.
Instructions for Posters
Poster sessions are an important part of this conference and we have saved an attractive time window for the posters to be presented. The posters will be displayed close to the coffee and tea break area, which will provide lots of opportunities for people to browse the posters.
Erecting and dismantling
Please put up your poster at registration time on Monday morning. Posters should be on display from Monday 11 September 2017 until the end of the Conference on Friday afternoon 15 September 2017. Posters should be removed on Friday afternoon. Any remaining posters will be disposed of.
Attending your poster
Authors are expected to attend their poster on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Please consult the conference programme for exact timings.
Locating your poster board
Posters will have an individual ID Number and the Boards will be numbered accordingly.
Mounting your poster on the poster board
Posters will have to be stuck to the hard top boards. Power strips or pins will be supplied by the organisers.
Size of your poster
Each poster presentation will be allocated one display board. The dimensions of the poster should be in A0 portrait format (120cm / 4 ft high and 85cm / 3 ft wide). It will not be possible to display posters with any other dimensions or formats.
