Speakers' and Poster Instructions

Scientific presentations will be held either as oral presentation or by poster and will be given in English (conference language) or German. For further information please contact the division in which you have submitted the contributed talk or the poster.


Oral Presentations

Usually, presentations will have the following durations. For exact information please contact the division in which you have submitted the contributed talk.

  • Contributed talks are 15 minutes including discussion and speaker change (12 min talk + 3 min discussion/speaker change).
  • Invited talks are 30 minutes including discussion and speaker change (25 min talk + 5 min discussion/speaker change).
  • Plenary presentations are 45 minutes without discussion.

Lecturers are requested to provide their presentations electronically. All lecture rooms are equipped with a projector (“beamer”) mainly with HDMI input. OHPs are not available.

Laptops must be provided by the speakers as well as all associated adapters (e.g. HDMI to VGA, Apple-adapter). Furthermore, the presentation should be recorded onto an USB stick as back-up in PDF and Power Point format.

All laptops must be set up and connected with the data projector before the start of the respective session. All rooms will be opened, at latest, 30 minutes prior to the lecture. Speakers are requested to be in the lecture room at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the session*, to report to the chairperson as well as the technical staff, to ensure that the laptops handshake with the beamer, and to receive a brief introduction to the equipment in the lecture room.

* In HSZ 01, HSZ 02, HSZ 03 and HSZ 04 it is recommended to transfer the presentation on the day before the lecture or
on Monday morning.

Posters must fit within a rectangle 90 cm wide and 120 cm high (DIN A0), portrait format!

The poster boards will be marked with the number according to the scientific program. Authors are asked to mount their poster when the poster board is prepared with the corresponding poster number. Usually this will be arranged in the morning, or one hour before the session when there are several poster sessions per day**. Each poster should display the number specified in the scientific programme.

For the mounting of the poster please use the prepared “power strips” at the poster frame or contact the available student staff. Please make sure to use only power strips for mounting the poster (residue-free removing).

The presenting authors should be at hand for discussion at their poster during at least half of the poster session and should note this time at the poster.

The posters have to be removed after the poster session. Any posters remaining on display walls after the poster session will be removed and destroyed without requesting your permission.

The  conference  management  accepts  no liability for the posters.


** several poster sessions per day: Tuesday P2, Wednesday P2/3OG and Thursday P1A
