Modes of Presentation


Oral Presentation

The normal length of an oral presentation is 20 minutes, including five minutes for discussion. Projection equipment such as a data-show and two screens will be available during the presentations. The speakers` information will be available at Congress web-site at least 6 weeks prior to the meeting.


A free standing display board which provides a display space approximately 120 cm high and 90 cm wide, will be allocated for each poster. A prize for the best poster will be awarded by the Programme Committee at the end of the Congress based on the following criteria: visual impact, clarity and scholarly contribution. The award will be presented to the recipient at closing ceremony.

Authors are encouraged to submit poster papers, since poster sessions minimize clashes caused by the many parallel sessions and since there is more time reserved for the presentation and for the viewing of poster papers than for oral ones.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper easily. Indicate the title and the author(s) names and their affiliations of your paper. Highlight the corresponding author`s name, address and e-mail information.

Priority must be given to visual elements as photographs, figures, maps, graphs, etc, rather than a text. Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.0 metre. Use different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colour and double-space all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graphs or charts. Organize the paper on the posterboard so that it is clear, orderly, and self explanatory.
