Presentation details

  • The presentation software installed on the presentation computers will be adobe reader + powerpoint 2007;
  • If you are the author of a long paper, then you get in total 30 minutes, i.e. for the presentation plus discussion plus switching time.
  • If you are the author of a short paper, then you get in total approx 20-22 minutes. So about 15 minutes for the talk if about 5 minutes are reserved for the discussion. You can reduce the discussion time slightly if your session chair agrees.
  • Please report 10 minutes before the session in the session room to your session chair (to upload the files to the presentation computers). See the booklet for the full details.
