For oral presenters

      • You shall arrive at the room where your presentation is scheduled 15 minutes prior to the first presentation in that session and make yourself known to the session Chair.
      • You shall load your Powerpoint presentation onto the presentation computer before the session begins.
      • You shall stay for the whole session – for your paper and the papers of other speakers in that session – in order to enable the delegates who wish to speak with you at the end of the session to be able to find you easily.
      • The presentation duration for Plenary Talk is 40 minutes, Keynote Talk is 30 minutes, Invited Talk is 25 minutes and Oral Talk is 20 minutes including Q & A session. Please keep a strict eye on the time during your presentation.
      • Make every effort to hold your audience by maintaining eye contact, modulating your voice and employing a lively delivery.
      • Speak loudly and clearly so that you can be heard by the audience.

For poster presenters

      • Your poster shall have a vertical or “portrait” orientation and be at A0 Format: 841 x 1189 mm.
      • The poster shall be readable from a distance of 2-3 meters. This means that all lettering should be at least 8mm high and that the graphs and diagrams should be drawn with a minimum line width of 1 mm.
      • You shall organize and align your content with columns, sections, headings, and blocks of text. Include title, collaborators, abstract, background/literature review, research questions, materials, approach, process, or methods, results/conclusion, future directions, acknowledgments and contact information.
      • You shall avoid abbreviations, acronyms, and jargon. Avoid fuzzy images; make sure all graphics are high-resolution and easily visible.
      • Your poster shall be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement the information and discuss particular points raised by viewers during your presentation session. Discussion becomes difficult if you need to spend time explaining your poster to viewers.
      • You shall bring an A0 hardcopy poster to the conference.
      • You shall give your poster to our staff at the welcome desk. We will hang it on for you before the session. You shall stand next to your poster for the duration of your scheduled presentation.
