Session Chairs will be available in the presentation venue in the interval before their session. Presenters should introduce themselves to the Session Chair in the interval before their session and ensure that all necessary presentation materials are in place well before the session starts.

Suggestions for Presenters

Please ensure that presentation duration has been carefully checked. You can contact the organizing committee if you need any assistance.

Find an opportunity in advance of your presentation to familiarize yourself with the venue and podium environment.

Provide your presentation, at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session, though preferably well in advance.

A member of the conference committee will be available to help, in each presentation venue throughout the conference.

Consider including slide page numbering and/or a presentation thermometer to indicate the progress of the presentation.

Poster Presentations

The size of each poster panel/board available to each presenter is approximately 120cm (wide) x 180cm (high).

We thus recommend you use A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm) or B0 (100 cm x 141.4 cm), portrait orientations, for poster size.

Please make sure you mount your poster in the poster panel identified with the title of your poster and before the beginning of the respective poster session.

Posters will be mounted by pins and/or sticky tapes assisted by our staffs.

Authors are requested to be available at their poster stand throughout their poster session.

The poster presentation area is just outside the main rooms.
