Information for Presenters
Oral Presentations


Oral presentations will be allocated a strict 20 minute presentation time, including time for questions.

Presenters should contact their session chair well before the start of the session, and are requested to test all aspects of their presentations before the session.

For those bringing their presentation on CDR or USB stick, laptops with USB audio devices will be provided, preinstalled with Acrobat Reader, Open Office, and Powerpoint. (Note that embedded objects in Powerpoint presentations can sometimes cause problems so these should be tested before the session.) Alternatively, presentations can be e-mailed to George Palikaras well before the session.

Audio connections are available via 3.5 mm stereo minijack, paired 1/4 in jacks or paired RCA phono connectors.

The data projector resolution is 1024-by-768, and has a standard VGA 15 pin D connector. Spare video adapter cables are available for newer Apple laptops.

There will be NO over-head projector (OHP) for transparencies.

Internet access is available in the OCTAGON, the Great Hall, the Skeel lecture theatre and PP1 but NOT IN PP2, where one of the parallel sessions is being held at.

Poster presentations

Poster sessions will be held in the OCTAGON, in the Peoples' Palace. Each poster has to fit on a poster board that is 3 feet (91.4 cm) wide and 6 feet (182.9 cm) tall. However, posters should not reach down to the floor as this makes them hard to read. Posters should therefore be no more than 85 cm (33.5 in) wide and no more than 119 cm (46.9 in) tall (i.e., no larger than A0 portrait or A1 landscape).

IMPORTANT: Posters wider than the stated dimensions will not fit on the poster boards and cannot be displayed. A0 landscape is TOO WIDE.

Authors are responsible for putting up and taking down their own posters. On the day on which your poster will be displayed, take your poster to the OCTAGON between 8:30 am and 12:15 pm, find the poster board which is labelled with your name and poster title and put your poster up using the velcro tabs which will be provided. You must then remove your poster by 6:30 pm on the same day.

Wired internet connections for up to 10 machines will be available in the GREAT HALL during breaks.
