Oral Presentations

  • Please check when and where your presentation will take place. The detailed conference program is available at this link: https://www.events.tum.de/frontend/index.php?page_id=626.
  • The time slot for each presentation is 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for Q&A.

  • A video projector and a PC will be available in all conference rooms. The use of personal laptops is not allowed.
  • Presentations must be loaded on the PC of the conference room well before the beginning of the session. Please avoid loading your slides just before your talk, because this will shorten the time available for your presentation (we will strictly enforce the length of the slots).
  • Bring your presentations on a USB memory stick. Staff will be present in the rooms at all times during the conference to help you load and check your presentation.
  • Please use your preferred formatting style, as no presentation template will be provided. Slides must be written in the English language, and must include the title and a complete list of authors with their respective affiliations. The oral presentation must also be delivered in the English language.
  • Presentations should be in PDF or PowerPoint format.
  • The default format of the slides is 4:3, although also the 16:9 format will be supported.
  • The PCs provided in each conference room will be equipped with the following software:
    • Operating System:  MS Windows 10
    • MS Office 2016 Professional (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Vers. 2015.017.20050)
    • MS Windows Media Player (Vers. 12.0.10011.16384)
    • VLC Media Player (Vers. 2.2.4)
    • Quick Time Player (Vers. 7.76.80.95)
      Please make sure that your presentation is compatible with this software configuration to avoid technical problems.
  • Introduce yourself to the session chairperson before the beginning of the session. Please hand-in to the chairperson a written bulleted bio (max 3-4 points). Please make sure that the chairperson knows how to pronounce your name.

Poster Presentations

  • Please check when and where your poster presentation will take place. There are two poster sessions:
    • Wednesday 15:45-16:30: Sessions A, C, E, G, I.
    • Thursday 15:45-16:30: Sessions B, D, F, H, J.
  • The detailed conference program is available at this link: https://www.events.tum.de/frontend/index.php?page_id=626.
  • In the session, note the tag assigned to your poster, which is given by the session letter (A, B, C, etc.) followed by a number. You will need this tag to find where to hang your poster. Maps will be available on-site to help you identify the location of your poster. Authors should hang their posters only in their assigned locations.
  • Posters must be printed in portrait ISO A0 size (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_216). Posters larger than this size or in landscape layout will exceed the available space on the standing boards, and they will be removed.
  • Please use your preferred formatting style, as no poster template will be provided. We suggest that you choose font sizes that are easily readable from a distance, and a style that is visually appealing and clear. We also suggest that you bring A4 handouts of your poster, which may be affixed to the board or distributed to interested participants.
  • The poster must be written in the English language, and must include the title and a complete list of authors with their respective affiliations.
  • Please print the poster and bring it with you at the conference. Unfortunately we cannot provide printing services on site.
  • You will be responsible for mounting your own poster. Please mount your poster as soon as you arrive at the conference, and do not take it down before you leave. Posters left up after the conference will be discarded.
  • Tape for mounting your poster will be provided at the conference, but please bring your own material if you have special requirements or you want to affix handouts to the board.
  • Presenters should be available next to their posters during the entire duration of their poster session, to discuss their work with interested viewers.
