Please read carefully the following recommendations.
They will help you to design your presentation


Invited talks have 25 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions (30 minutes total)
Contributed papers have 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions (20 minutes total).

A visual indication (blue light) will let you know when you have three minutes to finish your presentation and be ready for questions. As a courtesy to other presenters you cannot use more than 20 min for your own presentation.
We recommed to rehearse your talk, so you do leave time for questions.
Use fonts large enough to be seen from a distance to the screen of around 25 m.
Use color combinations with high contrast. Avoid yellow in white, black in blue, etc
Your presentation (Power Point, PDF) must be delivered to Frantisek Sutara ( the day before your talk. You can send it by mail, indicate a link for download, deliver a CD during the conference or bring it in a USB memory. Please be sure to deliver ALL necessary files for your presentation. You can test your presentation in the laptop that will be used for projection.


The poster session will be held on the afternoon of Thursday.

Posters must be placed on the boards on Thursday morning and removed at the end of the poster session.

The recommended maximum size is: width 90 cm, height 120 cm. Double sided tape will be available. Please avoid excessive text in your poster.

During the sessions, each poster must have a coauthor in front of it for discussion with the participants.

It is NOT allowed to use a copy of your manuscript as the poster. Please design a good poster.

You will identify your board by a label with the code of your abstract (code in the final program, you will be notified).  Please INCLUDE this code (for example, Tu-17) in the upper left corner of your poster, use a large font for this label.

Please verify that figures, labels and text can be read from a distance of at least 2 meters.

You may consider bringing letter or A4 size copies of your poster for distribution (by the way, this size is a good test to see if your poster will be legible).
