Poster Teaser

All poster presenter will have the opportunity for short (max 2 min) teaser presentation. You can use 1 slide (pdf format), which needs to be submitted through the contribution management system ahead of the conference. The aim of a teaser presentation is to get people interested in comming to your poster. Why is result important? Is this poster interesting for me? It is NOT a mini presentation of the content.

Slides for Oral contributions

Slides need to be uploaded ahead of the conference in pdf, ppt, pptx, or odp format. For other formats please contact the office with example files way ahead of time. The projectors will use 16/9 format. There will be no slide template provided.

Some general recommendations for oral presentations

  • Make sure your present your research question and what you are doing before explaining how you do it.
  • Best scientific presentations develop a narrative to tell a story and stress the main points.
  • Avoid writing full sentences on slides: telegraphic style and keywords are preferable
  • Use (and don't abuse) animations to synchronize your speech and what the audience sees on the slides
  • Make sure eveyone can read the text and legends
